The day after I posted the poll question of whether Shaq's free throws or his dunks have done more damage to the rims, Hollinger puts on quite a statistical analysis of Shaq's inability to make a free toss.
It's an interesting read, so go take a look at it. Apparently, Shaq is just a few misses away from 5,000 misses. There's a good chance that the cowardly Pop and his hack-a-Shaq Sp*rs put Shaq over the top. Perhaps my favorite tidbit (and the conclusion to the article):
Shaq's teammate Nash has missed 253 free throws in his 883 NBA games. At that rate, it would take him 17,451 games to miss 5,000. If he played every regular-season game for 200 seasons, he'd still fall short.
