It's unacceptable to shoot free throws that way, especially in a close game where we are struggling to score. Every miss hurt us considerably. The free throw became a mental issue last night - his body language was "I don't want to be here" at the line. He thought he was going to miss before he even took most of those shots. This guy needs to work on free throws above all else. He's going to go to the line a LOT in important games. If he doesn't get better we are going to have to treat him like Shaq at the end of the games and kind of ignore him offensively.

He needs to make free throws.
He's been in the league 8 years and currently playing his 9th year. He has yet to become an efficient FT shooter. I doubt he ever will become one despite your ranting and raving. We knew this when we traded for him. What you see is what you get.
Banking the FT's will at least give us a better chance of producing results even if he's fouled.
