Sep 27, 2013; Houston, TX, USA;  Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard (12) poses during media day at Toyota Center. Mandatory Credit: Troy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsDwight Howard is an atrocious free throw shooter. He has a .577 free throw percentage in his career, but has shot .491 and .492 in the last two seasons, respectively.

That's why it seems a bit ridiculous when I heard that he faced off with James Harden in a blind free throw contest... and he won.

Not only did Dwight win, he actually made a very respectable 8 out of 10 free throws.

For those of you doing the math at home, that's considerably better than his career average, and even more of an improvement over his last couple seasons, which were really bad.

No, seriously. Dwight's free throws are REALLY bad.



What do you think... should he just go with the new eyes closed free throw shooting method? Or stick with the tried (and kinda true) conventional eyes-open style?
