The fifth-year center went to the line with 4:34 left in the first half and hoisted up the first of two free throws. His shot appeared to have the right arc, but it was a good two feet wide to the right. Guard Jamal Crawford, who was standing behind him, put his hands on his head after the miss as if to say, “Oh my god.” The attempt was so awful that Jordan even had a laugh.
The best reaction of all may have come from Jordan’s mom, who tweeted this:
DAMN!!!! Use yo good eye baby!!! LOL

Jordan is paid for his defense and rebounding, but his offensive game really needs work. And his career 43.7 percent mark from the free throw line is an embarrassment. The only good news is at least that’s not the worst attempt we’ve seen this season. This one was.
