      7:00 i say this all the time, when ppl are in a video game, and they see they are playing Ageist a Streamer , or Pro ..
      that Pro / Streamer has an Advantage … before the Game even Starts ..

      Nah the main reason is because freethrows aren't always the best. Sometimes they rebound the freethrow for a dunk. It might be riskier but it's worth more and if your team is good, they'll definitely go for this.

      Ain’t no way get a lucky bounce on a double rim 😱

      I bet there is also a optimum height + arm length that makes it easier. If you're too short you have to put more power and effort vs someone that is very tall and has long arms. But I think you can be too tall and arm to long which makes you overshoot the rim.

      LOL I was second guessing myself that was Steve until they confirmed it. I'm like it looks like him….

      I had a friend who I was with on the basket ball team of our town, the dude was so talented at free throws that he always put the first one in the basket and the second he always aimed at a specific point of the basket ring for the ball to directly come back at him so he could make an attempt again for 2 points more and not just 1. Our team knew to screen every one so he wouldnt be bothered for this. It pissed our adversaries so much.

      Guy at 0:50 kinda looks like an old Mark Cuban loll

    8. Ben Simmons should try underhand. Nothing to lose

    9. yeah, nowadays Steph Curry got over 92% free throw success rate, in game as well

      If a person shot 95/100, 95% then missed the next shot, 95/101 they would be at 94.06%, they would have to hit their next 19 in a row to get back to 95%. Having a short period of a high average is do able, over an extended time any miss takes many hits to make up for it.

      i think your looking to far into a shot

    12. Making a buzzer beater to win a playoff series when you're down is ALMOST impossible too.

      2 shots for harden

    14. jack woods says:

      Did Nash Just Hit 34 Straight Free Throws at Some Random Park?

    15. "95% is impossible"
      Curry and JP : ok.

    16. TzN says:

      Because Shaq Filled the Free throw with BRICKS

      2019-2020 curry got a 100% free throw rate

    19. Somebody contacted me to comment, but I lost the comment. Sorry, I will do my best to answer. You are right; Good shooters will adapt to anything. There is only one exception, but that is only a matter of exposure: Going to someone else's yard for the first time. They shot better than I did, and I was good. This one guy Paul knew every bump and grind on the backboard, especially for a banker. Play there a couple of times and voila! You got it. Then shooters ability will shine. Come to my yard back then and it's the same. Another exception for me personally. This is in 60s and 70s, so playing on indoor fiberglass backboards was rare. For me, it was like shooting ducks in a barrel. Then go to my yard and go back to normal shooting percentage. Thanks and Out.
