I just absolutely love the way some comment on what they want .. in the way they want ... and TOTALLY IGNORE "some" responses.
In some cases, you might even say they were "double minded?"

I'm not double-minded at all, Bob. I made that comment on January 30th, 2006.

11 months later

I believe this thread's gotten horribly stale and repetitive. In fact, at one point, I cared enough to try and stop it. Ultimately, I resigned myself to the fact that I didn't have the power to end this thread. So I've decided to simply ignore it, unless called upon or temporarily intrigued. Doesn't change anything. You have the right to post in your thread. I have the right to think this is the finest example of spam on the forum. I hold nothing against you. My beef is with the thread, like its always been.

Oh, and you can quote me on that. :wink:

Appreciate the comments !!!

On point and responsive !!!

Because of your intelligence ...

I KNOW

THAT YOU KNOW

That In ALL OF SPORTS

There Isn't ANYTHING MORE REPETITIVE

THAN FREE THROWS


11 Months later the Golden State Warriors are still shooting roughly 70 percent free throws.

Roughly .. and they are next to last in the league in free throw percentage at home.

I'm not absolutely certain, but, I think they are WORSE this year than they were 11 months ago ... 68 plus percent this year ... 71 percent last year
If one always does the same thing over and over, one should expect to get the same results ... over and over. They do and they are.

Me too.
Still don't have ANYBODY ... ANYBODY ... ANYBODY ... willing to even
try to perfect this simpler, easier, more physically correct shot.

NOBODY ... even willing to TRY IT.

Is there ANY QUESTION that The Golden State Warriors have PRACTICED their current free throw technique ... over and over and over?

ANY QUESTION?

Unfortunately, the ONLY WAY this conversation can ever really change,
is if some one or more human beings, athletes, tries practicing the correct technique ...

LIFTING THEIR ARMS
LIFTING THEIR ARMS
LIFTING THEIR ARMS

I say for a maximum of 6 weeks ... for a maximum of 18 to 25 hours.

And, if there were some ONE or MORE human being athletes that couldn't perfect this skill ... after trying it ... diligently and conscientiously ...
we would know ... wouldn't we?

That a human being athlete can't perfect this perfectly balanced and
natural move ... arms point a ... to arms point b

I can SAY THAT's IMPOSSIBLE
BUT ... someone besides me is going to have to PROVE IT

Until then ... You're absolutely right. Not much is going to be learned by
ANYBODY.

The secret to the knowledge contained in this thread is in

THE DOING

I know nobody wants to hear it ...
Statistically speaking ... they could have won both of the last two games ...
if they shot 80 percent free throws.

:oops:

Happy Thanksgiving !!!

valid point, socool, esp. tonight. They would have won shooting 76% - Pietrus, Davis and Biedrins have all improved this year. Jrich has regressed -maybe he should take them from the 3 point line.

You right. We don't want to hear it, but mostly 'cos it's true, so it hurts.

I know it's just for americans but:

Happy Thanksgiving to everybody

It was the best FT shooting gane by the team so far this season! They can even beat the best teams if they just shoot their FTs well
