Must-see: Unfortunate free-throw attempt

Remember the wayward free-throw attempt from Appalachian State forward Brian Okam a few months ago? Well, a recent women's game involving Georgia College and Columbus State produced a similarly infamous attempt from the charity stripe courtesy of GC guard Shanteona Keys. Keys explained to Deadspin that she brings the ball close to her face and sometimes her finger touches...

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...

Here’s Another Candidate For Worst Free Throw Attempt Ever

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...

Raymond Felton loses grip on ball during shot

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...

The worst free-throw attempt in basketball history

This video makes Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard look like the best free throw shooters in the business. Both O’Neal and Howard are notorious for being horrendous at shooting free throws, but at least they can get the ball in proximity of the rim. The same can not be said for Appalachian State Center Brian Okam, who re-defined the term “airball” after attempting a...

Worst. Free Throw. Ever.

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.  Oh, and...

Appalachian State’s Brian Okam with the WORST FREE THROW EVER (VIDEO)

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. This.  Is....

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. 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...

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...

Appalachian State’s Brian Okam shows off unarguably the worst free throw attempt ever

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...
