New Raptors big man Jermaine O'Neal recently flunked coach Sam Mitchell's sprint-related free-throw drill.

Mitchell placed O'Neal on the free-throw line. He would shoot three free throws, and for each one he missed, his teammates would run an end-to-end sprint.

"That's some pressure, man," Chris Bosh would say later. "You're thinking, 'I don't want to mess up.' Nobody wants to mess up in front of everybody. You want to concentrate. You're on the spot and there's more than just your teammates watching."

O'Neal promptly missed all three of his attempts.

"Hey, he's tired. He's trying to get his legs back. That's why I put him up there (first) ... not to embarrass him," said Mitchell. "But guys got pride. I promise you, if we ever do the drill again – and we don't do it every day, I kind of hold it in reserve – but I promise you, next time, he won't miss three."

He should make it count in the games too. Even more pressure applied. :lol:
