    Andre Drummond Sets Dubious NBA Record

    Was fouled intentionally 21 times.

    Shot 36 FTs.

    Broke Wilt's record for missed FTs when he missed 23.

    One player fouled Drummonds 5 times in 9 seconds and 12 straight times to start the second half.


    The Rockets fouled Andre Drummond on purpose 12 straight times to begin the 2nd half, and it worked - SBNation.com

    I feel pretty confident he could shoot a better % underhand. I would be forcing him to do that if I was the owner or coach.

    Almost every shot is at least a foot too long.

    Relevant factoid. Drummond missed 23 of 36 for the game.

    Steph Curry has missed 22 of 237 for the season.

    Shouldn't be a pro if you can't make a foul shot.

    Luckily for Wilt a few NBA teams didn't share your thoughts.

    True, but Wilt was a freak.

    Isn't that why there is a backboard?

    Ironic that it was the Rockets with Dwight Howard choosing to intentionally foul a poor shooter.

    Wouldn't you think a guy that bad at shooting FT's would consult someone like Rick Barry and get some help. Barry basically put out a guaranty a few years ago that he could take ANY NBA player and turn him into a 70-75% or better shooter in just a few sessions I believe. Of course they would shoot them underhanded. Is it more embarrassing to shoot 30% or to shoot 75% underhanded.

    Also, if I was a coach, I would MAKE a guy shooting that bad from the line go see Rick Barry. A coach should do anything he can to make his players better.

    Drummond isn't Wilt level but he is probably a top 4 to 5 center in the league now.
