Rick Barry led the NBA in free throw percentage 6 times. In the final 3 years of his career, he shot 92.4%, 94.7%, and 93.5%.

"From the physics standpoint, it's a much better way to shoot. Less things that can go wrong, less things that you have to worry about repeating properly in order for it to be successful...

And then the shot itself, it's a much softer shot. So many of my shots, even if they're a little off, they hit so nice and soft, and they'll still fall in the basket...

Much softer touch. And so you have a little bit more margin for error than when you shoot overhand."

-Rick Barry
