Elgin Baylor's Declining Free Throws

During his first five NBA campaigns Elgin Baylor made a living getting to the free throw line and converting from the charity stripe.  Minutes, knee injuries and 100+ games of college ball slowly wore down the Lakers superstar.

As Baylor's speed and leaping ability declined those easy baskets were harder to come by.
