LeBron James makes backwards free throws look easy

Thursday July 16th, 2015

LeBron James is not exactly automatic from the free thrown line, with a career .745 free throw percentage, he may have cracked the free throw code with a new style in the off-season.

A Reddit user posted a clip of the Cavaliers star draining a free throw with his back to the basket during a practice session, in what is hopefully a sign to come for the next NBA season.

It appears that spending time promoting his new film, Trainwreck, has not stopped James from finding new ways to be awesome at basketball.
