I saw this cool article on the NYTimes http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/08/25/phys-ed-does-music-make-you-exercise-harder/ about the effects of music on training/exercise.

The coolest (and most on topic bit) was the note about music and high pressure free throw shooting, where athletes prone to "choking" performed better after listening to upbeat music. link - http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/content~db=all~content=a910467470

Given our staffs propensity to embrace modern technology and techniques, I thought that this might foster some conversations on DBR and possibly even get back to the staff.

Now I think in general the past year or two our players have been really solid under pressure, especially Kyle and Nolan, but we have had a few over the years who seemed to overthink pressure free throws a little (JW??)
