In theory, no NBA player should have any trouble shooting a successful free throw.

However, this isn't always the case, with big men not only more likely to draw shooting fouls in the post, but to also struggle when standing on the charity stripe.

We all love free-flowing, up-tempo, end-to-end basketball, but sometimes games are brought back to the quagmire, with these bumbling bigs taking shot after shot to keep the score, somewhat, ticking over.

But which player has attempted the most free throw attempts in a game, and how many did they actually sink?

From a pair of waring bigs from buttressing generations to a generational big prone to posting massive numbers, here is every single NBA player who has attempted at least 30 free throws in a single game, and their varying levels of accuracy.
