Blake Griffin is an All-Star on a playoff team. Blake Griffin averages a career double-double. Blake Griffin shot 52% from the free-throw iine in 2012.
One of these things is not like the other.
Few would argue that Griffin isn’t one of the preeminent young forwards in the NBA, but if he can’t correct his terrible free-throw percentage, it will severely limit his potential — and right now, it’s harming his team’s chances against the San Antonio Spurs. I decided to break his stroke down frame-by-frame because, well, whatever helps.
