Feat

Free Throws

To complete this feat, you must successfully complete five out of ten standard basketball free throws. A 50% free throw shooting percentage is solid for a non-player, and it would put you on a par with Shaquille O'Neal, who admittedly is one of the worst free thow shooters in the history of the NBA.

It took me 20-30 minutes to remember how to throw a basketball and then make the feat. I had to start out right underneath the basket and even then it was 0 for 10 at first. Turned out I liked the underhand Rick Barry free throw method, easier on the shoulder. And when I finally made it, I made 6 out of 10, which helped to feel like I really could do it.

Final Day: I went to the North Meadow Basketball courts to try this but the office that lends out balls was closed. Russell and I played a 2 on 2 game vs. 2 kids who were there instead.

Later I found a basketball in our closet and took it over to the hoops at 100th street in Riverside Park and completed the feat.

Nice work! I too was sucked into a game. Managed to get my six for ten done later, sharing the hoop with the next game, when the players were at the other end of the court....
