Two Sides Of The Same Free Throw Shooting Coin


When former All-Star center Jamaal Magloire air-balled a free throw (no easy task) a few weeks ago, the title for “Worst Free Throw of the Season” seemed all but assured.

“Not so fast!” said DeSagana Diop’s January 28th attempt.


I’m not sure which free throw was technically worse, but it’s important to preserve these moments in the annals of basketball history. An air-balled free throw is a beautiful failure, and a rare occurrence at the sport’s highest level. I wish the best to Magloire and Diop in their future, (hopefully) more successful free throw endeavors.
