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...
