In the NBA, the record is 97 in a row by Michael Williams of the Minnesota Timberwolves. He accomplished this feat over 2 season (1992-1993, 1993-1994).

The Guinness world record holder is Ted St. Martin, who made 5,221 consecutive free throws on April 28, 1996. He did so while giving a shooting clinic to students, taking over 7 hours to complete the task.

The most by an amateur and second most overall is Hal Cohen, a former SU player. He hit 598 consecutive free throws after practice when he was 17 in High School.
