New worst free throw ever (by Georgia College player) (VIDEO)

The ball is on the way down. Remember the horrible awful terrible free throw from Appalachian State’s Brian Okam in December?  This may have topped it.  If it didn’t, it certainly matched it.  A Georgia College (Division-II) player was eyeing a kiddie rim as she shot it about four feet high and four feet out.  My rough math says that she missed it by six feet and change high...

The 2012-13 basketball season — both college and pro — has been one for the ages in regards to botched free throw attempts.

Earlier this week the world witnessed a clip of Appalachian State’s Brian Okam shooting one of the worst free throws of all time, and it looks like Raymond Felton got jealous.  With just over three minutes left in the game, and the score tied at 71, Felton came off a screen and shot a mid-range jumper.   Unfortunately, the ball did not agree with Raymond’s plans and just shot...

Appalachian State's Brian Okam made worst free throw attempt ever (Video)

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.

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. I mean that ball had a beautiful arc, some nice...
