Observe free throw technique with Rick Barry of the 1975 Golden State Warriors.


The Golden State Warriors captured the NBA championship last night in Cleveland.

It is the Oakland-based franchise’s first crown since 1975, when Gerald Ford was President and the American Basketball Association remained alive, with Artis Gilmore and the Colonels still playing in Louisville.

Rick Barry was the star for the 1975 Golden State Warriors, and this clip shows how he compiled one of the highest free throw percentages in league history.

They don’t do it this way any longer, and in fact, Barry was the only one doing it this way when he played.

Check it out.
