- Bad free throw shooting can be defined as less than 60%. Good free throw shooting can be defined as greater than 70%.
- Bad FT shooters (such as Karl Malone, Shaquille O'Neal, and Dwight Howard) go to the free throw line approximately 200-300 times more. That means roughly 20%-30% of all fouls are a direct result of "Hack-A-Center" plays.
- David Robinson is the only weird exception to the correlation between low free throw percentage and high free throw attempts. He had a relatively high free throw percentage and high free throw attempts.
- The chart indicates a worrying trend: Once a bad free throw shooter, always a bad free throw shooter.
Best free throw shooters: J.J. Redick (91%), Ryan Anderson (88%), Quentin Richardson (83%), Chris Duhon (81%), and Jameer Nelson (81%). One of Nelson's major problems is how rarely he gets to the free throw line.
- When Dwight Howard turned 22, you could say he got a lot more assertive. He also got a new coach.
- This year's technical foul leaders: Dwight Howard (21), J.J. Redick (5), Glen Davis (5), Hedo Turkoglu (4). That makes 4 players in the Top 50. Congrats!
