View Full Version : Shaq's Achilles heel

This free throw shooting demonstration put on tonight against the Kings was just pitiful. I love Shaq....but he needs to do something. His free throw shooting motion varies from month to month and he goes on erratic streaks. At times he shoot 80%+ and at others its less than 1 in 10.

Its not like he needs to become a good free throw shooter, but 55-60% is necessary. Otherwise there is no reason not to resort to hack a shaq in the latter portions of games. Someone in the Heat organization needs to gather the courage to face him and force him to get help. The only one with that sort of clout is probably Riley. Poor free throw shooting just takes Shaq out of last few minutes of the game....really hurts the team's chances.

Dude, Shaq has had this problem forever. You just have to except it. Everything else Shaq does far outweigh's his free throw shooting, so you take him for what he's worth. It's like Shaq says "I make them when it counts!"
