I used to employ the Robert Horry feet tap when I played............dribble the ball, and whilst your doing it, kind of step each of feet of the ground a little, like a shuffle.............not sure if he still does it now.

Kidd's one is so ridiculous looking........... :roll:

That video was cool until the very end - I'm still bitter about that call.

The Rip Hamilton routine has always seemed peculiar to me just because it feels so awkward. Someone else that wasn't on there but seems strange is Derek Fishers, just because he lines up with his feet well off line of the basket and shoots it at an angle.

How about Van Exel's old one?..............the half way between the 3 point line and the free throw line???............that was pretty cool though, was there a reason for it? dont remember.

my buddy has a funny story about the Karl Malone free throw ritual.
He grew up in LA and was driving in the parking lot of a TGIF's or something in Marina Del Rey. As he drove by the front door there was Karl Malone walking to his car. So my friend, who was probably 16 at the time, decides to yell, "Karl Malone IS A P*SSY!!!" and he screeches off out of the parking lot like a coward. So after that, every time he saw Karl Malone speaking to himself at the free throw line, he imagined him saying, "Little punk in Marina Del Rey, no one calls Karl Malone a pu*sy"

cuz if he stood at the free throw line he'd shoot it too strong. just like his threes.
