DeSagana Diop hoping to make most of second stint on North Coast

The Cavaliers’ news conference to introduce center DeSagana Diop to the Cleveland media in June 2001 was one for the ages. Then-coach John Lucas went around the room giving people high-fives for their steal in the draft at No. 8 overall. Lucas boldly predicted the 7-foot 300-pounder would be an All-Star in two years. Once the microphone made its way to the Oak Hill Academy product...

Former first-round pick DeSagana Diop on Cavs' training camp roster

DeSagana Diop whom the Cavaliers selected eighth overall in 2001 is on the team's official training camp roster this month.

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… C’mon Man!

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...

DeSagana Diop's Free Throw Air Ball Doesn't Come Close to the Rim (Video)

Charlotte Bobcats center DeSagana Diop scored only 1 point in Saturday night's 102-99 loss to the Washington Wizards. Diop had some trouble at the free throw line as he was 1-4 with his free throws, including one which was so bad that it came up a few feet short of the rim. It's plays like this that explain why the Bobcats have only won three games so far this season. ...

Here’s DeSagana Diop With Possibly the Worst Free Throw Air Ball in NBA History

How bad was that free throw attempt by DeSagana Diop? I doubt that was even within 3-feet of the rim. Even if Diop is a 7-foot-tall center from Senegal, that is a poor effort on his part. No wonder Charlotte dropped a 102-99 decision to the nearly as pathetic Wizards tonight. That 10-second video clip perfectly sums up the Bobcats season to this point…ugly.

Video: Bobcats C has embarrassing airball

  The Charlotte Bobcats are not having a good season. Neither are the Washington Wizards for that matter. Given the records of the two teams entering tonight’s game it would be completely understandable if not many tuned in to watch. Those who did saw a fairly entertaining game. Bobcats center Byron Mullens had a career-high [...]

DeSagana Diop would be the starting center if the season started today for the Charlotte Bobcats
