It does look a little strange at this level. Even when my daughters were learning to play basketball we wouldn’t let them shoot like this. But it works for Canyon Barry who plays for Florida and it worked for his father Rick Barry.
Rick Barry, was famous for his underhanded foul shots. When he retired from the NBA in 1980, he was shooting them with 89.3% accuracy making him the most accurate underhanded free throw shooter ever.
Now his youngest son Canyon has adopted his dad’s form and on Sunday set a school record when he made his 39th consecutive free throw.
He can even nail them from half court…
