that right has to go to Andris Biedrins. for the season he is shooting an unheard of 16 percent from the free throw line and you would believe it by looking at his technique.

heres a video of him shooting

If you guys can think of a worse one, please let me know.

I heard on PTI he is going under-handed. Sounds pretty bad to me.

Ben Wallace probably hold the record for most airballs from the line

16% is downright awful but 25 attempts is a very small sample... it really shouldn't count towards the dubious record if it does.

Ben Wallace has consistently been the worst FT of our generation... 41.7% compared to Biedrins 51.9%.

well that 16% is hard to beat.

If we are talking bout the mechanic used to shoot the ball at Ft i think Carl Herrera was horrible.

ben wallace
beidrins just had a really bad year all around and got into his own head and one aspect was his free throw shooting where he only shot 25 times
big ben has consistenly shot a worse career free throw percentage throughout his career. when he played the warriors this year he had 2 clutch free throws to make and airballed them both

i will give you though that he has the ugliest free throw shot

It's true the % is just awful..but he's only shot 25 FTA the whole season.

25 attempts is a small sample size, big Ben Wallace has the worst for his career I believe.

I'm 68 years old and haven't played basketball since around high school age and I think I could go out now and beat 16%.

You are correct. Wallace has the worst career free throw shooting percentage of anyone to ever play in the NBA (that has enough attempts to qualify)

His technique looks like a ******** Chis Bosh FT.

Ever has to be Eric Montross.
Basketball-References.com gives his career ft% at .478 but literally over half of his FT completions came in his rookie year with the Celtics when he shot .635. He then failed to shoot over 40% in 5 seasons with his lowest coming it at .258 when he made 8 out of 31 fts. He's the worst I've ever seen (including Chris Dudley)

DeAndre Jordan. He is in the 30-40% range I think.

I was going to agree with Biedrins until I saw he only had 25 attempts. It's gotta be Ben Wallace. He has been consistently god awful. Big Ben just didn't put the work in he could of imporved it. Dante Cunningham went from like 40% on year to 80% the next in college.

No way. It may not be traditional or pretty but at least he shoots 70% for his career in the NBA and 68% for his college career.

small sample size buddy...

yeah he's a terrible free throw shooter...but he's only taken 25 or something this year...hardly indicative of his actual free throwing ability...seeing as on his career he is shooting 52% from the line...which involves way more free throw shots than the 25 he's struggled with this year..

not the worst ever...although close...

You have to know that Biedrins doesn't like to embarrass himself by going to the line now.. after he made 1 out of 10 attempts last time, he became a *****.

Anyways, Biedrins used to be a mediocre - par free throw shooter. Just isn't happening this season.
