When you see DJ Howard or Drummond take a shot. Those dudes can't shoot period. It has nothing to do with how much practice you put in. Some people can and some can't. All the practice in the world ain't going to make much of a difference .
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
