      they made a joke about a shaq point guard but now in 2k19 my team his galaxy opal is the most overpowered point guard

        Then he would have roughly 5,930 less points

          If shaq missed all of his free throws the kings would have a ring 😳

              This is like gauging a baseball player if he didn't get credit for hit by pitches

                  Shaq is a physical freak. I am a huge fan of mixed martial arts, and I shudder to think what a man with those basic physical gifts could have done, provided he trained for it the way he trained for basketball.

                        OK so 8 times he would have stayed within one seed... which seems meaningful when you gloss over the numerous times he would have sunk out of the playoffs completely.

                              How about if he misses, but then his team gets the rebound. How is that is put into play?

                                          Trust me, if Shaq is totally incapable of making free throws, he would be shooting 3 times of the amount, at least. Which would greatly impact all their team success.

                                            Aren't you ignoring the fact that if Shaq bricked _every single_ free throw that he would probably get fouled WAY more?

                                              Somewhere out there, Donn Nelson's pants exploded at the thought of a pure, scoreless, Hack-A-Shaq game.

                                                So two out of the three most prolific free throw shooters were absolutely horrible at it? I wonder if Hack-a-Wilt was a deliberate strategy.

                                                      Then every team would play hack-a-shack

                                                        people dont factor fatigue into free throw shooting enough when they pull the "i could shoot a better percentage" card. Imagine being as big as Shaq, running up and down the court for 40+ minutes in a stadium with the heat turned up, and suddenly stopping to shoot a couple shots you practically never take in a game. it can be more easily understood

                                                          Take away James Harden's free throws, and he doesn't even make the draft.

                                                            Total point comparison is rediculous. Ppg is the only relevant stat in this situation

                                                              would love to see the stats on Hardens current season/past seasons... might look a little different

                                                                        • jessefer26

In fact, it probably has much less of a factor due to change in game flow (i.e. they win a game by 2, he missed 5 but they play differently to still win). However, if he was guarenteed to miss every FT, teams would've played him different and just fouled any time before he would've made a shot (although this is all hypothetical to begin, so logic doesn't really apply in the first place)

                                                                            • Andrew Groves

                                                                              • Drew Johnson

There were also multiple seasons where they go from top 4 to out of the playoffs, the conclusion this video comes to should have been the opposite.

                                                                                                  so missing three throws doesnt matter?? I lost my basketball grand final thingy by 8 points in overtime because i missed both three throws with 3 seconds left in regulation time
