Worst Free Throw. Great Elbow.

A couple of basketball videos to start off the week.

First comes what perhaps is the worst free throw in the history of college basketball that was making the rounds on Twitter on Saturday. I am not exaggerating here. This will put a smile on the faces of all NC State fans who remember Charles Shackleford’s first college free throw – an airball in the Greensboro Coliseum in an early December loss against Kansas in 1985. This will make Shackleford’s free throw look like Scott Wood.


The second video comes to us via Busted Coverage and shows former NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady’s not so soft side.

Exactly who does Chan think he is? Does he realize he’s going Mutumbo finger wave on a 7-time NBA all-star? A two-time NBA scoring leader? The legendary Tracy McGrady? Obviously not.

And that’s why he took a huge elbow from McGrady, a guy who made $162 million in his NBA career. For some reason, the guy is still playing basketball and subjecting himself to such disrespect from some nobody in the Chinese league.

Reports back in October said that McGrady would make ONLY $1 million playing for the Qingdao DoubleStar Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association.

    Pretty sure McGrady will be out with a hurt elbow for the next 3-4 weeks. He’s a loser. I’m glad he’s in China. His time in Houston was awful. He’s a sulky prima donna.

    At least McGrady’s eyes showed some remorse.

    Maybe the dude shouldn’t have directly insulted Mcgrady in a public in your face fashion. Mutumbo kind of did it for the cameras and just in general, not right up in the guys face (from what I saw). And yes, I can distinguish the difference between that in my warped view.

    The flop after that elbow was enough to bring a tear to Coach K’s eye!

    That was freaking AWESOME! Yao Ming is somewhere laughing his ass off.

    I’m no McGrady fan, but the dude had it coming.

    I guess the App State players simply aren’t CAPELable of doing any better.
