    Haven't researched anything but through general awareness Jordan has flipped his history with minor shooting adjustments. He's basically doubled his career average.

    Let's see how long it lasts......

    Heat check recently made a video about how he's developed a new pre-shot routine.

    The excuse that big men can't shoot free throws is just a lazy narrative for Shaq-apologists. Yao was shooting our technicals. Hakeem was solid from the line. Webber and Karl [[redacted]] improved their free throw % drastically over their career.

    Probably credit to the Mavs' / Dirk's shooting coach. Need to give him the max to fix our FT woes.

    Dwight is a rare player whose FTs actually regressed over his career. His rookie season is BY FAR his best. Pitiful and pathetic.

    Dwight would 85% of his FTs in practice. Sometimes its just mental. Look at Fultz, he just can't shoot anymore.

    DeAndre Jordan is a true Houstonian and I hope he retires a Rocket.

    You dont know what its like to be a muscle bound brute. You dont know how your manual dexterity of slight of hand would be affected.

    Yao always had the gift of being graceful and fluid. His body was built differently.

    No matter how hard dwight, shaq, or dj work they will never have that gift. They are more robotic and muscle bound.

    Webber and Malone never were wired as tight and robotic as dj, dwight, and shaq.

    That's the most ridiculous thing I ever read. Even more so than my anti-Carmelo posts.
