Free Throw Attempts Per 36 Min Leaders: 2016-17 NBA Season

Free throw attempts per 36 minutes measures the number of times a player gets to the free throw line every 36 minutes of play. Incorporating minutes played into this statistic allows for a level playing field for comparing all players.

More about Free Throw Attempts Per 36 Min Leaders

Aggressive players are usually the ones who show up on top of this list. The best way to get fouled is to drive to the basket and draw contact from the defender. Players who shoot free throws well are more likely to be aggressive. Others shoot a large number of free throws because it is a weakness in their game. Three examples of players with high free throw attempts, but low percentages are Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard.
