Jimmy Lee was the best shooter from 15-feet I have ever seen. If he got his shot, he made it. Early, middle, or late in games it did not matter when. Jimmy had great fundamentals, he worked hard and he shot the ball with great confidence. He was so consistent; if he missed a shot you thought it was an accident. His thoughts and techniques can help anyone improve their free throw shooting Jim Boeheim Head Coach at Syracuse University, Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, Class of 2005; 2008 Olympic Gold Medal, Team USA, 2010 World Championship Gold Medal, Team USA; 2010 Division I Coach of the Year

Jim Lee and I were contemporaries at Syracuse. He played in the games I talked about them. I remember him as a clutch shooter (in the 1975 NCAA Tournament, his 18-footer with 3 seconds left upset North Carolina, and paved the way for Syracuses first trip to the Final Four). Since Jimmy was pretty close to automatic from the foul line, just about every player, at every level, can benefit from his advice and proven approach. Bob Costas NBC Sports

This is a rare book, because Jim is able to weave together invaluable skills instruction with a very personal and informative story about his relationships with teammates, coaches, and most importantly his family. Jims father, as both a veteran and a person with disabilities, clearly served as an exemplar for Jim with regard to how he approached basketball and how he approached life. This is clearly illustrated by the fact that Jim has committed to leverage the proceeds from sales of this book to improve the lives of this generation of veterans with disabilities. On so many levels, Jims book is powerfully positioned to impart lessons about basketball and life that are meaningful and timeless. Mike Haynie, PhD Executive Director, Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Syracuse University; Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship, Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University

Fifteen Feet For Free is an easy read for all ages. It can be very helpful for kids just beginning their basketball days, and I can see a great benefit for more experienced players. The fundamental instructions in this book can easily improve a players free throw percentage. Morgan Wootten 1,274 wins as Head Basketball Coach at DeMatha HS; Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, Class of 2000; National Coach of the 20th Century; Four-time recipient of National Coach of the Year; 10-time recipient of Coach of the Year in the Washington D.C. Area

The fundamentals of great free throw shooting are in complete alignment with the values of practice, repetition, goal sitting, and mental calm that successful business people employ. Jim gets this and writes about it in an amazingly real and compelling way. Mike Perlis President and CEO, Forbes Media

About the Author

Praise for Fifteen Feet For Free

"Fifteen Feet For Free is a great read for anyone who wants to improve their game off the court as well as on the court. The inspirational story of Jim’s dad, Snook, is worth the price of admission before you even read a word about the foul shot. Jim’s view on the importance of setting goals, working hard, maintaining focus, paying attention to detail and having a positive attitude can help anyone at any age. These are the same attributes that we value at Noco Energy and look for in all of our team members."

Jack Catanzaro

- General Manager, Noco Energy Corp.

Jim Lee’s book is a must read for players and coaches at all levels. His simple mechanical and mental approach to free throw shooting is a proven winner. With one instructional visit to our practice before a game we went from a 64% free throw shooting team to 78%. And we won the game. Jim has helped our team almost every year for the past decade.

"The beauty of this book is the aggregate impact it will have on players’ lives. Jim’s father instilled skills in his son to serve him on and off the court for a lifetime. I grew up in Syracuse attending hoop camps and learning from many of the people Jim cites in this book, which enabled me to play Division III college hoops. While I never became a great free throw shooter, the skills in Fifteen Feet For Free have served me well in both my personal and professional life."

Coaches and players of all levels can benefit from this book. Each group will be impressed by the importance of practice and shooting correctly. A system established by the best shooter I have had the pleasure to know.

"Fifteen Feet For Free will improve anyone’s free throw shooting, and guess what – if you play golf, it will improve your putting also. I once made 332 consecutive free throws thanks to Jim Lee’s instruction. His insights for establishing a consistent, reliable routine are exactly what PGA, LPGA and Champions Tour players work on regularly."

"Whether you are a coach or a player, in grade school or college, Jim Lee’s Fifteen Feet For Free is a must read. Jim’s approach – along with tips from some of the greatest foul shooters ever – is simplistic and easy to
