I can't believe Randle is almost 70%. Seems like he has been lucky to hit one of two free throws his entire career. You can almost always count on him to clank one. Just like his jumpshot, free throws will always be an adventure with him.

Ingram has too long of a windup on his free throws IMO. Don't see him being a very good free throw shooter unless he tightens that up. He's not a very good shooter really, but he has really stepped up his game driving to the hoop, and his footwork to score around the hoop. But free throws - don't see him ever being much more than ~ 70% guy from the charity stripe.

not sure if the numbers support this, but if has felt like for years the league as a whole has regressed in FT%.....sure felt like growing up in the 80's and early 90's guys simply made their free throws.


Magic would get fouled and just make 2 every time pretty much. Kobe also for the most part other than occasional weird slumps from the line.

Our bottom 4 need to raise their percentages, Lonzo and Ingram especially.

Not to mention Kobe was doing it with mangled fingers.
