Should DeAndre Jordan Switch Hands On Free Throws?
Anyone with two eyes can see that Deandre Jordan is a HORRIBLE free throw shooter.
He's so bad that teams are fouling him on purpose down the stretch in games, which means his teams has to sit him in pivotal moments in the game.
Despite many coaches and players stepping up to counsel Jordan, the poor free throw shooting has dragged on. Today may be the dawn of a new era, as someone offered a new solution: shoot free throws with your right hand.
Jordan’s own teammate, J.J. Redick, has lent his voice to the matter, suggesting that Jordan shoot his free throws with his right hand. Jordan, as Dan Woike of the O.C. Register reports, isn’t too keen on the idea.
"After the game, J.J. Redick, maybe jokingly and maybe seriously, said for the past two seasons he has told Jordan to shoot free throws with his right hand.
“He jumps off his left foot, which is how most right-handed people jump,” Redick said. “Their left foot is their dominant foot. He shoots every single jump hook, and tonight, running hook, with his right hand. He finishes around the basket with his right hand. He’s really good at it.”
Jordan, a career 42 percent free-throw shooter, said he’s not making any drastic changes.
“I tried to shoot with my right hand, and it was pretty much the same. Maybe worse,” he said. “I think I’m going to stick with the left because I’ve been practicing that for awhile.”
