29% of David Robinson's Points came from the FT Line

Career points that came from the FT line:

37% Karl Malone
31% Moses Malone
29% David Robinson
27% Charles Barkley
23% Tim Duncan
22% Patrick Ewing
21% Shaquille O'Neal
21% Kevin McHale
20% Hakeem Olajuwon

What does this mean?

Talk amongst yourselves....

methinks Shaq might have better numbers if he'd hit his FTs..... ....maybe with Tim also.

It means that David Robinson scored 29% of his points from the free throw line.

Or is this a trick question?

It means he got fouled a lot.

What no Kobe? That guy gets bailed out almost everytime he takes it to the rim and start flopping around like a fish out of water.

Notice that the list is a list of big men...but it'd be nice to see a list of guards

^^^ Then the list would be AI, Boykins, and Kobe.

37% of Malone looks impressive to me. Anyway, if Shaq had Malone's FT%, his percentage would be 29.2%

It means that the Admiral did not shy from contact and is one of the league's all time great "bangers" despite those detractors who still label our icon "soft". Despite his guard like 32" waist, the Admiral was a true center who would be still playing today if he took the less bruising over sized small forward route of the Uzi wielding KG who comes in under 20% on the same stat. But the Admiral preferred battling with the giants and he held his own in the paint.

I also think DRob was not that soft as some want him to describe.

Just out of curiosity, where'd you get the stats?

Depends on who you ask. Some people I knew (Rockets fans, incidentally) thought Robinson got preferential treatment from officials and that's why he got to the line so much.

When Rasho replaced Robinson, this was one of the biggest things that hurt. Rasho could clog the lane and block shots, sure, but he picks up fouls at a glacial rate. As a Spur, he's averaged barely 1 free throw a game.

It means someone's math is off. Malone should be at 27%, not 37%.

9787 career free throws made
36928 career points

Very good. The number was really high. I was surprised even if I knew 9787 FTM is the NBA record. (I think?!)

that means david had a lot of fouls while driving in for those facials...
i wasnt shocked to see malone up there. all we need now is to find how many of his ft's shouldnt have counted due to that 10sec shooting violation

I totally agee. The Spurs went from an all time banger in the paint to a contact averse Euro. Despite his lack of foot speed, Rasho must be quite agile to keep it to one foul per game when you look at other big centers like Ostertag and Bradley who are foul fests. Rasho must be the lowest fouling starting center in the league. He's shown he has the skill to stay out of the way- I'd like to see that skill redirected to initiate more contact. You'd think he would have picked up a few tips from the human bowling ball, Malik.

Not sure what the significance of this stat, if any, is. DRob's game was predicated on beating his man to the hoop, so he'll get to the FT line more.

Seeing Ewing on this list is a little surprising, but he was a classic post Center until he became too enamored with the 18 foot jump shot.

Last season, Danny Fortson got 49% of his points at the free throw line. His career average is 33%.

When Dave was at his best he was so quick and did almost all his scoring in the inside. Opposing teams needed to decide if they would let him score or put him on the line. The numbers show he was fouled a lot..
