New York Knicks center Joakim Noah is an incredibly bad shooter, which is kind of important when it comes to playing professional basketball.

In Monday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Noah stood on the free throw line, and one of his shots was so, so bad. Take a look:

Look at his reaction. Even he knew his attempt was possibly one of the worst ever.

This isn’t just a case of the ball slipping out of a player’s hands. Missing free throws and other attempts is a regular theme for Noah, a career 69.9 percent foul shooter, but oddly, he’s gotten progressively worse over the past two seasons. In his sixth year with the Chicago Bulls, Noah made 75.1 percent of his free throws, more than acceptable for a center. But this season, Noah is only shooting 41.7 percent, a career low.

But just to further prove how unsuccessful Noah is, this is a guy who has played 10 years in the NBA, yet he has never made a three-pointer. But to point out the amusing, Noah is a guy who fully understands he can’t shoot the ball. In 10 seasons and 612 games, he has taken a grand total of 15 three-point attempts.
