Cavs Tristan Thompson Shooting FTs 20 Percent Better After Switching Hands



I hope Dwight Howard is paying attention.

A few weeks ago we reported that Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson, was making a historical move by going from a lefty to righty shooter, in an attempt to improve his overall offensive game.

Well, according to a story by Yahoo! Sports via Michael Grange of Sportsnet, early indications are that Thompson’s free-throw shooting percentage has improved significantly, as he competes for Canada in exhibition games and at the FIBA Tournament of the Americas.

If Thompson’s shooting percentage continues to improve, you may see all of the NBA’s efficiently-challenged shooters following suit.
