Video: DeSagana Diop Airballs Free Throw

Former Cleveland Cavaliers lottery selection DeSagana Diop airballed a free throw recently and it was fairly epic.

The best part may be that his second attempt went glass.

Over 10 NBA seasons after being selected eighth overall in 2001, Diop has averaged 2.0 points per contest. The 7-footer is making $6.5 million this year.

  • Who hasn’t done that? lol

    Well, at least it looked like it was in-line.

  • Mark Skog

    Wow. Not. Even. Close.

  • Harv 21

    Like his casualness and that of his teammates after. No good-natured snickering. Must do that a lot in practice.

    Wow, don’t think I’ve ever seen a 20 second video clip
    that so encapsulated a player’s entire career.

  • I may be wrong, but January 28th was not “last night”

    When Gana played here, his homephone number was listed in the phonebook.

  • Dahknis

    He should have been released immediately after the game, 6.5 million and he can’t even hit the rim on a free throw? Horrible!!

    Diop has made $32,726,484 in his career, or 28,433 dollars per point.

    Good work if you can get it I suppose. I cant believe that guy is still in the league.

    Bleacher Report linked to this article. In their title, is talked about a Cavs draft pick having an epic fail shooting free throws… I just assumed that it must be about Tristan Thompson
