Isaiah Thomas goes 12/12 in the Seattle Seahawks' free throw contest

Isaiah Thomas is a pretty steady free throw shooter. The 2016 All-Star averaged 87.1 percent from the line on his 544 attempts from the charity stripe as the Boston Celtics reached the playoffs last season, and is an 86.3 percent shooter throughout his career.

But just recently the point guard produced a perfect performance in front of the whole Seattle Seahawks team and staff to smash the previous record in their free throw competition.

Ahead of the new National Football League season that starts this weekend, Thomas took a trip to the Seahawks' training base and produced a cold-blooded display of shooting as he went 12-12, much to the delight of those watching on. See the video below.

With one minute on the clock, the Washington native got on a roll and continually found net with the clock winding down. As he reached the final seconds, the players were going crazy, but he kept his composure to remain at 100 percent.


The Legion of Boom is a team that has experienced a lot of success in recent years; winning Super Bowl XLVIII in 2013 before claiming their second straight NFC title in 2014 as they lost in the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots.

Thomas will be hoping the Celtics can experience the same level of success in the NBA after a strong free agency period.

Al Horford's addition is huge for the most famous franchise in league history while new draft pick Jaylen Brown is tipped for a big summer. Challenging the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals should be their minimum expectation.
