    "Maxiell shot an abysmal 3-12 from the free throw line as the Detroiters hit just 40% of their charity tries."

    :laugh:He was a 60-70 percent free throw shooter. I think he'll start making some soon.

    It's not the way he's shooting free throws it's his conditioning I think. It looks like he gets tired and can't put enough in his free throws. If he gets better conditioned his free throws will get better too.

    Guess the new thing will be hack-a-max... Some people could shoot free throws blind folded better than that!

    Dude alex acker stats have been impressive, but then again this is the summer league but if he could play this good as a back up for chauncey that would be great(which i doubt since nba is on a much higher level than summer league) but still impressive.

    Maxiell shot 33% with the Pistons last year (14 for 42).

    It comes down to who can come off the bench for short stints and still contribute... that's a rare bird.

    I'm talking about college. I think the main problem is fatigue.
