Found January 30, 2012 on Next Impulse Sports:
DeSagana Diop just may have cemented his legacy in NBA history Saturday night, when he stepped to the line and released one of the worst free throw attempts (if that’s what you want to call it) ever. The 10-year veteran is shooting a staggering 25% from the charity stripe this season, and from the looks of this video it’s not getting better anytime soon… Click here to view the embedded video.

Worst. NBA. Free Throw. Ever.

We won’t say DeSagana Diop is the worst player in NBA history, but the dude is totally a waste of space. The Cleveland Cavaliers made him the eighth overall selection in the 2001 NBA draft. He somehow stuck around with them for four years and he’s now wasting space for the Charlotte Bobcats, where he brings his gaudy career averages of 2.0 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. Pretty...

Desagana Diop has a One-Foot Shooting Range

As you can see in Desagana Diop's free throw last night, anything outside of a foot has a rare chance of going in. At least the technique is there, unlike Chuck Hayes and Joakim Noah. Do big men still have to make 10 free throws in a row before they leave practice? [Follow me @TravisHouser]

Worst Free-Throw Miss in History (Video)

When it comes to poor free throw shooting you usually associate it with former NBA bigman Shaquille O'Neal. However, a new face of poor charity stripe tossing may have emerged from the pack on Saturday.Seen here is Charlotte Bobcats forward DeSagana Diop chucking a free throw attempt that some are calling, "the worst free-throw miss in the history of professional basketball...

Video: DeSagana Diop Airballs Free Throw

Former Cleveland Cavaliers lottery selection DeSagana Diop airballed a free throw last night. It was fairly epic. The best part may be that his second attempt went glass. Over 10 NBA seasons after being selected eighth overall in 2001, Diop has averaged 2.0 points per contest. The 7-footer is making $6.5 million this year. (h/t to Brian Boesch)

Is this dude f'in serious? He didn't even come close to hitting the net! Wow!  

Bobcats Insider: Can't beat Wizards? Then who?

Not beating the Wizards at home really places in question when the Bobcats will end this losing streak. Their upcoming trip includes the Lakers, Trail Blazers, Suns and Celtics. After that they play tough home games against the Bulls, Clippers and 76ers. The Bobcats have been particularly bad within the Southeast Division this season. They're now 0-7 against the other four teams...

Bobcats encouraged by Kemba Walker's progress

Bobcats coach Paul Silas spent the better part of a week preaching to Kemba Walker the importance of passing first, shooting second. Apparently Walker's a pretty good listener. In just his fourth start at point guard Walker handed out 11 assists en route to his first career triple-double in Charlotte's 102-99 loss Saturday night to the Washington Wizards. It was a remarkable...

Something to Look Forward to For Bobcats Fans

Wow! What a week for the Charlotte Bobcats. Those of you that have read my rambling in the past know that I prefer not to go off on tirades on the current and very dire straits of the franchise. With that in mind, the above words are about the only thing I can really say. [...]

Yup.  That just happened.

Dumpster Grease Tire Fire Train Wreck Plane Crash

Like a recurring nightmare, the Bobcats and Wizards played again on Saturday night.  My first impression was astonishment at what a large, lively crowd was on hand in Charlotte.  Who were all of these self-flagellators, and is there a Guinness Book of World Records category for “Most Masochists in a Single Room”? At least they [...]
