LeBron James is working on his free throw shooting

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Being a good free throw shooter is an important part of being a well-rounded NBA player, especially if you’re a player who gets sent to the free throw line with any frequency. This is something that has happened with regularity to LeBron James, who has averaged almost 9 free throw attempts per game. For most of his career, James has been an above-average free throw shooter, making the freebies at a 75-percent clip.

But for some reason, thus far this season James has struggled from the line. It’s early in the season, sure, but James is just 28-47 from the line, which is just below 60-percent. Which is below average for James. So how do you fix it? For James, you put in work, even if it is late at night…

WORK all day long especially on the things you're not as great at. #StriveForGreatness

    King! Is that really you? Free Throws? C’mon man! I think its a great idea! We normally see three plays by the cav’s; pick and roll for da king, post up for da king and of course your favorite, isolation for da king. after you take your four steps and flop you may get some Free throw opportunities. You missed a lot of FT in the finals last year. But wait, you just mentioned the offense was going to run through Kevin Love this year. Heck go on home and see your kids. enough holloween gags, ridiculous photo’s etc. You are really “the jester” as you make so many of us laugh.
