Some Cheese With That?

Shaquille O'Neal just became the seventh player in the NBA to have scored 25,000 points and grab 10,000 rebounds, but his team still lost the game to the New York Knicks, 93-99. After the game, he lamented, "I am kind of disappointed in myself because if I make free throws I'd be at 30,000 rather than 25,000." O'Neal has attempted 9,826 free throws in his career and missed 4,642 of them.

I'm a pretty bad basketball player, Shaq, but even I know that unlike many things that life deals you, free throws are something that you can dramatically improve with practice. So stop being a baby, and go practice.
