It's not like Hack-A-Shaq was a forecast for these "elite-level coaches" ... the Hack-A-DeAndre regularity and others has been in the past year. No one saw a day coming where this would be rampant league-wide just to gain an edge. It happened with Shaq and then 15 years later where we are now, you act like they should've seen it coming when most people in this thread had their attention seized in the offseasons by Dwight working with Hakeem in private sessions (no one anywhere was saying 'You know, he should be working on those FT's instead, because in 6 years the Hack-A-____ bit is going to become big). No, this is new to everyone in its degree of frequency.

Not like Shaq was a predictive model if the regularity didn't come until 15 years after, just saying.

It may make a difference, but probably a minor one.

 

The way I see free throw shooting, is like the way I see other skills in basketball. Some people just won't be good at them.

 

Kind of like...you can practice jumping all you want, you probably won't be able to jump as high as a Nate Robinson. 


I think what's going on here is, people are undervaluing the skill of free throw shooting just because a lot of players are good at it. Not realizing that each player is independent of each other

Let's use a different analogy like school instead. In a class everyone has different potential. The smartest kid has greater ability than the dumbest but there's no reason one passes with a 92% and the other can't even get a regular F. Like we're not asking you to be valedictorian, we just want you to be a standard 52-58% dummy instead of a 45% dummy and we'll let you slide.

And in deandre's case seeing he has damn near no skills whatsoever I would think he doesn't take his game all that serious. He also seems to be a little bit on the dumb side but that's neither here or there

Im trying to figure out why any of you would want a flopping choker who can't do anything but dunk on your team?

Amirite?

go to your room and think about those missed free throws!


the hacking will stop, once you make enough for the opponent to not do it. their not asking their players to perform surgery.

I feel like people don't understand that shooting 1000 FTs in practice is totally different than shooting in game situations. It's not easy to replicate and it's incredibly hard to stay consistent with your form when fatigued if you don't have that muscle memory.

Yea this is the first trade I've seen in a long time that would benefit all sides instead of poaching another team. I'm truly shocked laugh.gif

so , just cause something is  easy for you doesnt mean other people dont struggle with it no matter how hard they try. thats what these guys arguing about free throws cant comprehend. the same way i couldnt comprehend algebra no matter how much work i put in.

It is kind of a shock to go from playing all out to all of a sudden everything stops and you have to compose yourself and concentrate when you've got this adrenaline running thru you. But that's something everyone has to deal with so it's hard to have sympathy.

I didn't wanna say it but laugh.gif. My only response would be that you weren't good at it but they didn't give you a pass and excuse you because you tried which is what it seems like some people want to happen in this case.

I swear I've seen way more free throw talk than Lebron and Cp3 bashing in this thread lately. Not a good look for the nba thread.

I'm disappointed in you guys.

Considering that he hasn't been the best player in the league for three years now, nope.

Can only go down from here.

He'll never win another finals MVP either.
