Hey if another team wants to exploit it then so be it. Like I said, i'm indifferent on that part of this. 

 

But the NBA is a product too, and if it gets too widespread, then it becomes not only silly, but a deterrent to the fan. Like, we have people jumping on player's backs to intentionally foul under two minutes :lol That's ridiculous. Let two out of six nba finals games be 4 hours long snoozefest because of free throw shooting, something would have to change. Have to protect the interest of the consumer too.

on this subject, what is everyones routine to shoot a FT? mine is to bounce it off to my right side. catch it with two hands like im picking the ball up off a rack and then shoot. as long as i "pick the ball up off a rack" im nailin that free throw most of the time.

no bull but i have the illest set up ever brah.

one dribble to the front, throw it front to behind my back like im hibachi, take another dribble to the front, and i spin it with both hands then it's all net pimp.gif

but with your example, it would get hard to tell if a looseball foul on a ft is intentional or not at the end of a game. if they change the rules then instead of jumping on a players back players will just make it seem less obvious while still clearly fouling. 

 

personally I would love for the fate of the NBA finals come down to a 50% ft shooter shooting fts, that would be hilarious

Seems legit.

By this logic, you'd have to ask why all NBA players don't shoot 90% from the line. Best players on Earth, simple shot, not defense. None of them should miss more than a few shots here and there, right?

1) No matter how hard you practice, you can't simulate shooting free throws in a 19,000 seat arena filled to capacity, and you're playing the OKC thunder primetime on TNT and you've been battling and wrestling with Steven Adams and Serge Ibaka for the past 6 minutes. There's nothing like game simulation. It's why Austin Rivers can work tirelessly on his jumper but have a stretch this season where he was 4/39 from 3. Yeah I know it's Austin Rivers, but that shouldn't matter because...well he worked on his jumper and and "it's all about consistency" 

 

In theory, practicing allows you to fall back on the habits you form so even under bright lights you'll be able to make those free throws, but that's not the case for everyone. :smokin

 

2) There's normally a dot on the free throw line, put my lead foot there, 3 dribbles, deep breath, and let that thang go.

Steph Curry, and JJ Redick's shooting is a genetic feat. It's something that naturally came to them. They were predisposed to shooting the ball at an elite level. Sure they worked to harness that, but the skill was already there.

 

We see the connection between overall shooting and free throw shooting. Free throw shooting, like shooting overall, is a skill and to a degree is inherited. You can work all you want, but you won't shoot as well as yae yae or JJ. 

THESE dudes arguing otherwise are ridiculous.
