Why Tall Players Can’t Shoot Foul Shots

Ever wonder why “Bigs” can’t shoot foul shots? It’s simple. Since they were little or should I say young kids they were always told to stay near the basket by their coaches, me included, to get rebounds. There were other average sized players to dribble the ball and shoot from the outside. Consequently, they were told NEVER to shoot from the outside and all their shots were a few feet from the hoop.

When they were fouled, all of a sudden they were forced to shoot from 15 feet away, where they rarely practiced from with all eyes on them.

It is hardly a surprise that they were not successful
