I don't think Dwight will ever be a good free throw shooter. He's in the same mold as Wilt and Shaq. Best I can see him at is 65% or so. I know he shot around that his rookie season but he didn't shoot nearly as many free throws back then.


Off topic but why does your name remind me of this:

well it seems all the great centers minus Kareem Can't make their free throws conistantly eg Wilt & Shaq, But I'm Sure Like Shaq Dwight will get Better over time

Shaq never improved his FG% :man10:

Shaq's FG% is among the best all time :man1:

His FT though is another story.

Off the top of my head I can only think of two big men who constantly shot at least 80%, which is Yao and DIrk. The problem is big men who are really bad free throw shooters(40-50%) usually remain that way for the rest of their careers. They might improve but never to the point where they are decent (+75%). Only player I can think of who made a significant jump was Karl Malone.
