Dwight Howard has steadily worsened as a free throw shooter in his NBA career, shooting just 49 percent last season.
Now with the Houston Rockets, Howard is aiming to have a career season at the foul line. His career high at the free throw line came as a rookie, when he shot 67 percent.
"This season, I want to win a championship," Howard said. "I want to shoot 75 to 80 percent from the free-throw line. I want to win defensive player of the year."
Howard left the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency in the offseason.
