Even Jeopardy is mocking Dwight Howard’s free throws

Jun 9, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

When Alex Trebek is mocking you, you know it’s bad.

Of course, you know Dwight Howard just thought this was funny and laughed about it.

For those of you studying for the SAT, you can thank Deadspin for finding this and teaching you a word you need to know.

      If YOU (13arod) were Howard you’d be juicing Biogenesis style and getting ready to sit out 100 games.

    What is a trajectory, Alex? How does a “narrower one” help? A trajectory is only as wide as the projectile itself. In simple terms a trajectory takes the shape of a parabola, being neither wide nor narrow. Perhaps they meant a higher angle of elevation to Howard’s shot release, resulting in more arch, which would (on a graph) actually result in a “wider,” more pronounced arch rather than “narrower,” flatter one. In any event, I’m confused by the “answer.” Jeopardy’s unique method of providing the answer and then looking for the question is confusing all on its own.

    An interesting aside, related to trajectories, is that the development of the modern computer was driven by the difficulty of assembling tables for the military in applications of aiming field guns. Formatting artillery firing tables was grueling work susceptible to error. The first electronic digital computer, ENIAC, was developed to address this issue, though I’m not sure even a computer could help Howard’s crappy free-throw shooting.
