Raymond Felton Terrible Shot vs. Appalachian State Free Throw

Worst. Free Throw. Ever.

Appalachian State junior center Brian Okam had what has to be the worst free throw of all-time (from anybody that has ever played basketball competitively, anyway) on Saturday against Western Carolina. See it for yourself: Spectacularly awful. It should come as no surprise that Okam and Appalchian State lost the game, and are now 1-7 on the season.  Oh, and...

Appalachian State’s Brian Okam may have had the worst free throw attempt ever (Video)

Appalachian State center Brian Okam should be proud of himself for grabbing the attention of the Internet with his historically bad free throw attempt on Saturday. The 7-foot tall junior center from Nigeria looked like he had the right idea to use some backspin on his shot, but he just didn’t give the ball quite enough of a push.

Appalachian State’s Brian Okam shows off unarguably the worst free throw attempt ever

Welcome to Airball City, population that guy. It’s hard not to cut Appalachian State center Brian Okam’s some slack on his free throw shooting—he is 7-fooy tall junior and big men are notoriously bad shooters—but this attempt from the charity line is beyond horrible.  Airballing a free throw takes some serious lack of talent, but Okam’s attempt nearly goes straight up...

Worst Free Throw Ever? Absolutely.

Two powerhouses, West Carolina University and Appalachian State, faced off on Saturday and this travesty of a free throw occurred. Western Carolina erased a 13-point second half deficit to defeat Appalachian State 70-64, but the memory of this free throw from Brandon Boggs will never be erased from the Appalachian State faithful.
