    Re: Underhanded freethrows

    I remember reading once that Rick Barry claimed he could teach anyone to shoot better underhanded in an hour or two. I believe it was in reference to Shaq, but it might be time for Royce to give him a call...

    Re: Underhanded freethrows

    Re: Underhanded freethrows

    Practically it makes sense. Unfortunately, it is such a blow to someone's manhood to do so that I can't see it happening.

    I think Royce is just zany enough to pull it off.

    Re: Underhanded freethrows

    If they're going to be laughing at you for shooting airballs, what's the difference if they're laughing at you shooting granny style??

    Underhand freethrows + blow to manhood > airball freethrows + blow to manhood

    blow to manhood cancels and you get

    Underhand freethrows > airball freethows
