Andre Drummond has a new free throw style (VINE)

Oct 10, 2013, 9:56 AM EST

Andre Drummond had a rookie season that made you think “this guy could be a franchise anchor.” He only started 10 games and played 20 minutes a night — you can thank Lawrence Frank for giving us more Jason Maxiell over Drummond, that’s the way to build a young team! — but he averaged 7.9 points on 60 percent shooting plus pulled down 7.6 rebounds a game.

The most glaring weakness: Free throw shooting. He hit 37.1 percent of his shots at the line. He had multiple airballs (including once when he airballed two in a row). It was ugly.

But now he’s got this new form, so it’s all good. Nothing to worry about.

    having fun is cool but i HATE when horrible free throw shooters mess around on the free throw line. you suck at it. stop messing around. its not funny. stories that dwight makes 8 of 10 eyes closed? drummond behind the back free throw? you suck at it! raise it to a respectable % and then do what u want. at least 70% or something. not 35 or 50.

      my thoughts exactly. Can’t stand when a player on my team doesn’t take his job seriously; especially when they are paid millions of dollars to play a sport.

      Andre, you free throw shooting is atrocious and is going to cost your team. Quit making jokes about it.

    He’s like…19 years old…chill out. Rag on Dwight all you want though. He’s been in the league a lot longer and loves media attention, AROD style. From the big deal he makes with his free agent decisions, it’s obvious he believes he is a top 5 or 10 player. If that were true, he would be consistent from the line.

    whining about Drummond’s FT shooting is like whining about Peyton Manning not being able to scramble
