    Couldn't make a free throw? Need to do some fact checking. Bradley's free throw percentage was over 92% one year and his career percentage was 71.6%. That's over 10 points higher than Derrick Favors' percentage and just slightly less than LeBron James'.
    More importantly, I had always understood he had a growth hormone secreting pituitary tumor which surprised me since his parents are tall and he has a sister over 6 feet tall. Good to know that's not the case and that this is just the maximum of his genetic potential for height.

    I'm interested in the follow-up article mapping Bradley's genome to find out why he couldn't make a free throw.
