Charity Stripe Excellence: KD and Big O

Kevin Durant is averaging nine made free throws per game halfway through the 2014 NBA season.  The last player to make nine foul shots per night was…Kevin Durant in 2010.

If Durant can keep up this furious pace of sinking foul shots he would be in very exclusive company.  In NBA history only Jerry West and Oscar Robertson have averaged 9+ made free throws/game in two or more full seasons.

The “Big O” accomplished the feat four times from 1961-1967 while “The Logo” had three such seasons.
