Dwight Howard assures fans that his notably poor free-throw shooting isn’t for a lack of effort. He’s tried everything. Really, everything.
He’s heard about his free-throw struggles his entire career, and in 12 seasons, it hasn’t gotten better. Howard is a career 56.8 percent free-throw shooter. In 2015-16, he shot a career-worst 48.9 percent from the line.
Howard had his best free-throw seasons earlier in his career with the Magic, and maybe he should return to that old routine … because it’s great. The Hawks center told ESPN that he used to sing Beyoncé songs at the free-throw line to calm himself down.
He said via ESPN:
“I used to sing Beyoncé songs, that was my thing. I told her about it when I saw her. I said, ‘When I sing your song, I make my free throws.’ She seemed to like that.”
Howard needs to bring that routine back. Anything that may stop trash talk from his own basketball campers should be his top priority.
“Because of all the attention to it, our flaw has been magnified to the whole world. I’ve got little kids at basketball camps telling me, ‘My dad says you suck at free throws.’ Other players have flaws, but they aren’t getting magnified the way the free throws are.”
Plus, Beyoncé is awesome.
For The Win
