Layups: Shaq Closing in on 5,000 Missed FT

Posted by Neil Paine on December 21, 2008's John Hollinger has a fun piece on Shaquille O'Neal's "pursuit" of 5,000 missed free throws, since the Big Aristotle needs just 8 charity-stripe bricks to reach the milestone. Of course, there is good news for Shaq: even if (when) he does pull off the feat, he'll still trail Wilt Chamberlain's all-time record by 805 misses.
