Free throws are actually supposed to be quite simple, which is why most NBA athletes make 7 or 8 shots out of every 10 free-throw opportunities. There are many athletes who dominate at this, some even show off, scoring free throws with their eyes closed. And then, on the other hand, there are the atrocious players who couldn’t make a free-throw shot to save their life. Check out this list of the worst free throw shots in the history of the NBA.
The 7 foot 1 inch former center position player is considered to be one of the greatest and most dominant players in the history of the NBA. Chamberlain also holds numerous NBA records in scoring, rebounding, and durability categories. However his biggest weakness was his notoriously poor free throw shooting, he has the third lowest career free throw percentage, with 51.1% (which is based on a minimum of 1,200 attempts). In fact, he set an NBA record for free throws missed in a game with 22 in 1967. A record that wasn’t broken until 2016.
