Tony Parker with about as bad a free throw as you’ll ever see (VIDEO)

Jan 30, 2014, 10:43 AM EDT

Tony Parker is a career 75 percent free throw shooter who is knocking down 80.3 percent this season. This is an aberration.

But it’s one heck of an aberration.

Parker took about as bad a free throw as you will ever see during the Spurs loss to the Bulls Wednesday night. 

It looks as if he tries to pull up on the shot a little (maybe it slipped out of his hand) but the referees gave him a mulligan saying they had distracted him on the technical foul shot. ESPN analyst Doug Collins guesses that one of them told him mid-shot not to shoot. Whatever it was Parker got a second attempt and nailed it. Which just about sent Tom Thibodeau and the Bulls over the edge.

    It was the non goal tend that sent them over the edge. Then this made it worse. They kept piling on mistakes as a crew

    “ok, tell me who switched the basketball for this bowling ball.” – Tony Parker

    The ref did start walking before Parker actually got the shot off, although I don’t know if that normally happens.

    Either way, it’s pretty funny

    Pretty obvious he tried to stop the shot. Can’t remember who it was, but I saw an NBA player a couple years ago come up so short it hit the very bottom of the net with the ball being below rim level for at least the final 3 feet.

    He just wanted to make his debut at Shaqtin’ A Fool.
