It sounds as if you may be against raising the rim to 11 feet. I am as well. You hate me. I'm certain that we cannot possibly agree on something.

I don't hate you tall madge, don't be such a drama queen. I just asked the rationale for raising the rim.

You're making a lot of assumptions.

If they didn't take pride, why did Howard shoot nearly 500 more practice FT than the notorious gym rat Kobe?

Because the mental aspect gets to them.

The 70% was a typo, my bad.

When you're coaching teams that practice 2-3 times per week for an hour (typical for CYO), nothing gets sufficient attention, including free throws. Given the time constraints, I stressed fast moving drills that had the kids passing, dribbling and catching/shooting on the move...dozens, hundreds of times. Always practiced free throws, but never enough.

I think that free throws are just a natural thing that basketball players do. Some are better than others, but I would think anyone that's paid to play basketball could make 60%.
