Of Mice And Men ...

Somebody once said that the difference between mice and men could be demonstrated in how they "run the maze."

If you put a mouse in a maze and put some cheese at the end, the mouse will run the maze over and over ... to get the cheese. If you take the cheese away, the mouse will run the maze once or twice and then stop. No Cheese.

A human on the other hand, will continue to run the maze over and over and over ... cheese or not.

Shoot Hoops And Not Troops .. For A Different Result This Time

This Definitely COULD Be The Year!

Warriors 67% Free Throws

They sure do TALK a lot about free throws. Like, NON STOP!
On the radio I heard Biedrins has the most God Awful Form imaginable?
I didn't see his shot on TV ... and I'm not going to go looking for it ...
But, after 50,000 plus views of two threads like this one, I guess at least "I" have the right to wonder ... what in the hell is wrong with human beings on this planet?

Haven't I said I learned this shot after becoming 50 plus years old?
Haven't I said that it took 6 weeks ... about 20 hours ... to get good enough to shoot 80 percent?
Haven't I repeated the story of George Johnson ... the one teammate of Rick Barry's who went from well below 50 percent to well above 80 percent and continued to get better?
Haven't I pointed out that it is SO SIMPLE?
Anybody ever heard the expression .. "I WILL LEAD ... NOT FOLLOW?"
Get rid of all the bull schitt and notice as I have that the "move" that makes the shot go in is simply LIFTING YOUR ARMS

Point A to Point B

OK ... here it is again.
Free throws taught by a master.
People's heads just can't be that thick ...

I WON'T ALLOW IT !!!

Are there MORE WORDS I could add to get this message across?
Different words?
Which ones?

OK ... then watch this entire half hour. Watch Men and Women And Boys and Girls Make This Shot

Getting through to ANYBODY .. Yet?

I just sent ANOTHER EMAIL to


pr@gs-warriors.com

Suggesting that they TAKE SOME TIME
To Read This Thread

I'm hearing of conversations in gymnasiums where I've never been ...
talking about a shot most people have NEVER SEEN

BUT ... I do not yet see RESULTS
except mine ...

So ... GS Warriors
LEAD NOT FOLLOW

Starting January 12th with "International I Want To MAKE MY FREE THROWS Day at The Oracle ... {How Fitting}
I've also left a message for the Warriors Longest Term Executive
I guess I'll call Oracle Next

Maybe ... YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO SOME OF THE SAME

See you at the Arena? January 12th?
SoCô¿ôL Bob at halftime ... making 80 Percent???

And now I've left a phone message for Oracle Community Relations =D>

Bob's the man!

That video with Rick Barry was awsome! Just thinking about the whole FT mess with the Warriors pisses me off even more after seeing that. I think Rick is totally right that people don't do it because of their egos. Biedrins is shooting a one handed hack-job shot right now, kind of like Anthony Mason did for a while, only way less acurate. There's no way he wouldn't improve his percentage, by 15-20% even, if he started shooting underhand. I don't know why people are so reluctant, cause the shot looks pretty sweet to me. I guess it's that whole 'grandma style' thing - people just aren't willing to sacrifice a little (nothing at all, actually) to gain a whole lot.
Basketball hope in the City Of Dope?

Thank You Sir ...

And Be Assured

I WILL NOT LET GO !!!

Look ... I'm a very positive guy !!!

I believe in positive thinking, positive reinforcement and the whole nine yards. I believe in God and Jesus Christ ... The Father, The Son And The Holy Ghost

... but .. I just saw, for the first time in my life, Mr. Biedrins shoot his freethrow.

AND ...

There is "NO Kluckin Way" He Can Make Free Throws Shooting Like THAT!

NO KLUCKING WAY !!!

It is time ... once and for all ... WE GET RID OF THIS EGO
BULL SCHITT
...

There can't possibly be any benefit to THE EGO shooting the shot like that.
He's GOING TO MISS ... OFTEN

SIX WEEKS FROM NOW
If he would just start shooting the shot underhand in practice ...
HE WOULD BECOME EVEN MORE WORLD FAMOUS !!!

How's that for your EGO ???

Wouldn't you like to become famous for more than DOUBLING YOUR PROFICIENCY AT THE FREE THROW LINE ???

NOW ... Thanks To Your Positive Response ... We're GOING TO Take This Thing To The Next Level

Read this copy of the email I just sent to Rick Barry

Rick To Me ...

Bob,
As the OLD saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink it."

Rick

:D :D :D :D :D

Me To Rick ...

Image Image

You Can If You Put An Apple In The Water

THIS TIME ... I'm going to do my BEST to HELP THEM DRINK ...

I just posted a response to having seen, for the first time, Andris Biedrins shoot a free throw ...

Image

And I've given my response ... NO Klucking Way !!!

Once again somebody has come on the board and offered PRAISE for the way YOU SHOOT FREE THROWS ..

Thanks to that .. and determination ... and a new phrase ...
LEAD NOT FOLLOW
I'm encoding your free throw exhibition from 2005
It'll be UP .. and on the board ... exactly WHEN I send this email

50,000 views ... it's NOW TIME for RESULTS !!!
I'm suggesting if Andris Biedrins wants to serve his EGO
He shall become famous for doubling his proficiency ...
IN NO MORE THAN SIX WEEKS ..

That would be before January 12th .. when the Warriors play the Heat
I've sent an email to pr@gs-warriors.com
and left a phone message for Al Attles

EGO MY ASS ô¿~
These young people are supposed to be SMARTER than WE ARE
Able to learn from our mistakes ..
NOW .. let's give them a CHANCE to PROVE IT !!!

I WILL LEAD NOT FOLLOW !!!
Especially when it's so DAMN SIMPLE !!!

With just a LITTLE MORE EFFORT .. this conversation WILL REACH CRITICAL MASS. Then, it'll be ALL DOWN HILL ...
Or underhand ... as the case may be ..

I will also suggest that people on the GS Warrior Message Board and elsewhere can contribute to the positive result ... SIMPLY ... by standing up in the crowd and DEMONSTRATING THE SHOT ... Over And Over

Stand
Grip
Lift
Follow Through
SWISH ...


I will LEAD not FOLLOW
I will MAKE ALL MY FREE THROWS !!!
Underhanded !!!

Warriors Win ...

Hit 81 Percent Free Throws

5 point difference in the game "happens" to be the difference between
68 Percent Free Throws and 81 Percent Free Throws

Barnett on TV comments, making free throws made a difference in the confidence with which they played this game. Making free throws helped make the difference down the stretch in "closing out" the victory.

They also "shot" a lot more free throws.

Biedrins 1 For 2
Murphy 4 for 4
Dunleavy 3 for 3
Baron Davis 13 for 17 and 36 Points
Monta Ellis 7 for 9
Barnes 2 for 2

Warriors even their record at 3 - 3
Beat the undefeated Hornets at Home
Playing without Richardson and Diagu

This could be ... the day !!!

Who really cares about free throws?
Absolutely NOBODY

Too Damn Difficult

Why don't they just give them a point per foul and let the team getting
fouled take the ball out ...

SINCE Making This Shot is just too damn difficult ... a waste of time ...
and BORING / DISGUSTING

You, my friend, are VERY OBSERVANT
You, my friend, are VERY CORRECT
You, my friend, are wise to comment on it.

Perhaps, you and or others may someday find themselves equally annoyed .. or similarly annoyed ...

What is it that's annoying?

The FACT ... seemingly indisputable ... that it is

EASY TO MAKE FREE THROWS


That ... to "this old man" is a FACT

And Yet ... Still ... After two or three years of my own discovery ...
the ENTIRE PLANET is unwilling even to TRY IT


Six weeks, three or four hours per week.
That's how long it took me.

And ... The Entire Population ... here and elsewhere seems to be, continues to be ... ANNOYED by the PHENOMENON
And This Conversation

What, in my opinion ... is the way to OVERCOME IT?

Shoot the Shot !!!
Nope .. ain't going to do it ... is literally UNIVERSAL

That ... and then to watch a performance where TWO NBA TEAMS
are unable to shoot 53 Percent in an ENTIRE BALL GAME

That is ... as I have said ... to me ... MASS INSANITY

I like human beings too much to be pleased about that.

Thanks For Commenting !!!

I am, however, EXTREMELY Grateful
For the opportunity to SAY SO
Over and Over and Over
