Shaquille O’Neal Blames God For His Bad Free Throw Shooting

 

Shaquille O’Neal was one of the most dominant and unstoppable players the NBA has ever seen. He almost was a jack of all trades, but never mastered the art of free throw shooting.

Free throws were Shaq’s kryptonite. Shaquille O’Neal has an explanation for his free throw woes. No, it’s not that he didn’t practice them enough, a broken wrist he suffered as a child also isn’t the reason. So what is it then? According to Shaq himself, it is god’s way of keeping him humble. He said:

 

The theory is, it was the man way upstairs’ way of keeping me humble. Seriously. Because the way I played, the way I made everyone else around me better, all of the publicity I was doing, imagine if I was doing that and had shot 90% from the free throw line. I would have been arrogant. I’d probably be so arrogant. So it was just his way of saying ‘hey, buddy, you’re just like everybody else.'”
