The 2012-13 basketball season — both college and pro — has been one for the ages in regards to botched free throw attempts. The bar was set incomparably high (low?) back in December with this errant attempt from Appalachian State’s Brian Okam, which traversed about halfway down the lane before landing with a resounding thud. A few NBA players have also been involved in their own misadventures from the charity stripe, including DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard, Dwight Howard again, Dwight Howard a third time, and a quartet of guys named “Smith” — Ish, J.R., Greg and Josh.
However, none of the aforementioned shots compares to this act of futility from a player at Division II Georgia College. The Bobcats lost to the Lady Cougars of Columbus State 70-60 on Saturday night, in a game marred by quite possibly the worst free throw in the history of civilization (© Bill Walton).

BEST OF MAXIM
There has to be some type of cosmic shift happening in the universe. Maybe that meteor crashing in Russia last week was the final sign. We all know things in Laker land have been beyond shaky this season and there doesn’t look to be any let up in sight. Dwight Howard was notably MIA during All-Star weekend outside of the events he’s required to attend. Now comes word that Dwight...
Despite Dwight Howard recently saying that Lakers GM, Mitch Kupchak told him he won’t be traded before Thursday’s trade deadline, his hometown Atlanta Hawks are expected to make a serious run at Howard before the deadline.
According to Ken Berger, CBS Sports:
There’s widespread belief among league execs that the Lakers will not trade Dwight Howard, who is an unrestricted free...
Dwight Howard has been coy about his upcoming free-agent status, often dodging questions about it, but he provided his latest insights Tuesday after the Lakers' shoot-around.
Does he see himself as the Lakers' cornerstone after Kobe Bryant's career ends?
"Yeah, I do. That's what we've always talked about since the first day I got here," he said.

Kobe wants Dwight Howard to stop clowning around, but Dwight doesn’t know how to act any other way. People may not like Kobe Bryant, but no one questions his desire to be great and his work ethic.
That is what gets him the respect from peers and fans alike, but I don’t think anyone respects Dwight Howard right now, on or off the court.
Here is just a latest example why from Larry...
Just when you thought the drama in Lakerland couldn't get any more juicy, Kobe Bryant has essentially thrown in the towel on the Dwight Howard era.
Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski had this little gem in a piece about Howard and Chris Paul's impending free agency:
When asked about the possibility of the Lakers moving Howard at the deadline, Kobe Bryant was devastatingly...
Dwight Howard is the Lakers version of Rizzo with Kobe Bryant playing the role of Sandy if Page 6's source is to be believed:
Amid other reports that the Lakers’ chilly on-court chemistry was...

The drama never stops with the Los Angeles Lakers. Before the Dwight Howard trade became a done deal, both Dwight and Kobe Bryant were hesitant to become teammates. Kobe made [...]
The ball is on the way down.
Remember the horrible awful terrible free throw from Appalachian State’s Brian Okam in December? This may have topped it. If it didn’t, it certainly matched it. A Georgia College (Division-II) player was eyeing a kiddie rim as she shot it about four feet high and four feet out. My rough math says that she missed it by six feet and change high...
Mitch Kupchak stressed Dwight Howard will fully recover at some point and that the center will be a major part of the Lakers' future.
Is it really hard to be a fan of more than one team in a sport?
It seems in past sports history, fans were more fickle and diehard for their team. In contemporary times, its a whole new ballgame for fans.
It’s not hard to be a fan of multiple teams in one sport. Everyone knows this.
Having more than one team to root for means more chances to be on the winning side.... Read more
Despite all the mishaps this season and the “Dwight is unhappy in LA” reports, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak says that not only does the team have no intention of trading him, but the upcoming free agent is their future.
According to ESPN LA:
“Dwight is our future,” Kupchak told “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on ESPN Radio on Wednesday.
“It’s hard to get talent in this league...
