FREE THROWS When you think of the sport basketball the first thing that pops into your mind is Michael Jordan dunking the ball or shooting a jump shot But one of the most essential skills in basketball is shooting a free throw A free throw is generally shot when a player is foul by another player on the opposing team while he or she is shooting a shot A free throw is shot about fifteen feet away from the basket A player gets to shoot the ball without anyone guarding him they get about ten seconds to get the shot off This is why basketball players gave the nickname charity stripes to shooting free throws A lot of players ignore the importance of shooting free throws they dont spend the adequate amount of time needed to practice this important skill Legendary Purdue player Rick Mount once said in his shooting video The Mount Method that about 75 of close games are won or lost at the free throw line A lot of games are won or lost by a point or two and players would end up going home blaming themselves for missing a free throw at the beginning of the game When you practice shooting free throws it will also aid you in your overall shooting Shooting free throws is not a hard thing but it takes a proper routine and many hours of practices In order to shoot free throws a player needs to develop the proper shooting techniques on the free throw line When shooting a free throw the players feet should be shoulders length apart He should align his shooting hand straight with the basket and his shoulders need to face the direction of his shot The foot of his shooting hand should be toeing the line and his other foot should be a bit back this will give him the proper balance and allows him to use his legs
