iirc Rick Barry was and remains outspoken about the underhand free throw. I know I heard an interview once about how he got Wilt to do it for a game or part of a season or something and he was able to make a much higher percentage, but wilt wouldn’t stick with it bc it didn’t look cool.

It’s pretty amazing how many dudes in that video actually had dece percentages. More than one way to skin a cat!

In his autobiography Chamberlain said using the "granny" shot made him "look silly" and "like a sissy."


To paraphrase the great Free to Be You and Me, a sissy is somebody who doesn’t use the granny shot because he’s afraid somebody will call him a sissy if he does use the granny shot

i didn't realize until recently that elena delle donne is a significantly better ft shooter than any nba player. her holding the ball out with her elbow at a 90 degree angle seems notable, but her shot looks pretty conventional.
