MANILA, Philippines – You can’t keep a classic down.
Houston Rockets big man Chinanu Onuaku brought back a classic to the hardwood on Wednesday, October 12, sinking a pair of free throws underhanded during a 116-104 preseason win over the New Orleans Pelicans in Beijing, China.
Onuaku, the 37th pick in this year’s NBA Rookie Draft out of University of Louisville, is one of several centers who will try to fill the void left by Dwight Howard, who signed with the Atlanta Hawks during the off-season.
Whether or not he’ll be able to be the defensive presence Howard was has yet to be seen. What can’t be denied is that this 19-year-old has the most glamorous free throw shooting form since Rick Barry. – Rappler.com
