We all Know Dwight Howard’s biggest weakness – he’s a career 59.8% free throw shooter. Howard, who’s work ethic is extremely underrated, is once again trying to improve his game by working with yet another renown coach. This time the coach is Ed Palubinskas. Palubinskas is considered the “Free Throw Master.”
Palubinskas has tried to work with Howard for at least a year. In May 2010, he sent an e-mail message to the Orlando Sentinel in which he said that he had written and called Howard but had gotten no response.
“I will completely change his numbers in less than one week and you won’t recognize him,” Palubinskas wrote then.
