Was there ever a rule where you could shoot 3 tries for 2 free throws in the NBA?

Yes, in the 70's

1976 Three for two rule introduced to allow players fouled in the act of shooing to attempt a third fouls shot if either of the first two attempts miss.

There was also a 2 for 1 rule during that time. All defensive fouls were awarded a free throw or free throws. If a one shot foul was called and the defensive team was in the penalty situation, the shooter was awarded 2 shots to make 1.

The ballet that has a phoenix in it is called firebird which is about a hunter who tries to shoot a phoenix and it begs hin to spare it's life. He agrees because it was so beautiful and the bird gives him a feather. If he was ever in trouble he could use the feather and the bird would come and save him.

You don't ever have to shoot if you don't want to.
