Don Nelson made 2,864 free throws (.765%) in his NBA career despite looking like someoneís uncoordinated dad trying out Pop-A-Shot at your local Chuck E. Cheese.

Something equally as amazing as Nelson's free throw technique? His iron-man appearance streak of 463 consecutive regular-season appearances, running over five years, from February 1, 1967 to December 16, 1972.

5' 10" former point guard

Career highlight: 1973-74 championship, Boston Celtics

He looks like Joe Klein going up for a rebound.  Strange leg position and he makes the ball look very heavy!
