This great Wednesday morning is filled with good basketball stories. We had the one handed baller, two huge dunks by Blake Griffin against the Bulls, Minnesota player throwing down a fast break 360 dunk, Mike D'Antoni yelling at the media, and Jason Kidd hitting a controversial game winner against the Nets. Might as well add one more to the mix. Check out the video below...
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.
You know how people will break up sentences into one word sentences for emphasis? For instance – worst. Free. Throw. Ever. This foul shot by Appalachian State junior center Kevin Okam deserves paragraphs of one-word sentences emphasizing how awesome/pathetic/hilarious this free throw is.
It happened Saturday during App State’s game against Western Carolina.
Appalachian State center Brian Okam attempted what can honestly be described as the worst looking free throw attempt ever by any NCAA college basketball player during Saturday's 70-64 loss to Western Carolina. It has to be seen to be believed, as Okam's foul shot, and we're not even sure we can even call it that, went straight up in the air and didn't even make...
I hate to admit it, but even I airballed a free throw during my illustrious collegiate basketball career. But even I would never, evvvvvvvvver, airball one this bad. Appalachian State's Brian Okam, take a bow.[youtube]x-MW5tkTWtQ[/youtube]Big up: Deadspin
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. I mean that ball had a beautiful arc, some nice...
Meet Appalachian State player Brian Okam. Brian is a 7 foot junior center for the Mountaineers. App State played Western Carolina yesterday and lost 70-64. Brian played a total of 12 minutes in the game and shot 1-4 from the free throw line. The video below might possibly make you pee your pants laughing. Mr. Okam threw up one of the worst free throws in the history of...

Brian Okam plays center for Appalachian State and in a loss to Western Carolina on Saturday shot the worst free throw I have ever seen. This has been a rough season for the Mountaineers, as they are now 1–7 and we will be seeing this horrendous shot for a long time.

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...
Since the inception of basketball, there have been some terrible missed free throws but this one from a recent college basketball game between West Carolina University and Appalachian State featured one that will not be topped anytime soon.Check out Appalachian State's Brian Okam at the free throw line as he throws up an airballed free throw.Watch as the ball goes up only two...
Tweet Check out this video of possibly the worst free throw attempt in the history of organized basketball, courtesy of a player from Appalachian State and Western Carolina University’s student TV station: Wow. It’s difficult to miss a free throw that badly even if you tried. -ALR
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.

This is not how to shoot a free throw. This is not even close to how to shoot a free throw. The next time you see Dwight Howard missing a dozen down the stretch or remember just how bad it was when Shaquille O’Neal strolled to the line, turn to this video and take solace. This Appalachian State player had a better chance of getting his ball into the rafters than getting it near...
The Appalachian State football program is courting Shawn Elliott, offensive line coach and run game coordinator for South Carolina, to be their next head coach.
The first reaction in reading this news as it was first reported by TheBigSpur.com is ...."oh god, no." However, as I step back and think about Mr. Elliott and what he is all about, I begin to see how it is...

Insert Zach Walker's name onto the list of candidates for best college football grabs of the 2012 season. The Georgia Southern wide receiver hauled in a dandy during his team's game against Appalachian State on Saturday. It's impressive to say the least.
