NBA Star Humiliated In Back-to-back Shots

March 15, 2012 by staff 

NBA Star Humiliated In Back-to-back Shots, Blake Griffin’s immediate reaction after missing the front-end of this trip to the line — “OhhhAAAAAHHHH” — pretty much nails it. There’s no shame in missing free throws; nobody hits them all. Even airballing (a more common occurrence, even at the NBA level, than you might think) isn’t necessarily a sin — some of the best players of all time have done that. Plus, it’s unlikely that yours is the worst airball of all time, because DeSagana Diop’s probably got you beat there.

Airballing two straight, though? It doesn’t make Blake Griffin any less amazing a basketball player, but still, yipes. That’s Ben Wallace and Dennis Rodman territory. Enough of a bummer to make you make big loud noises and fumble with your mouthguard.

The misses didn’t hurt Griffin’s Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night — L.A. expanded the second-quarter lead you see it holding in the video above, cruising to a 96-82 home win over the visiting Atlanta Hawks behind strong bench play from guards Mo Williams and Eric Bledsoe. But Griffin’s — and the team’s — free-throw woes could prove to be a major problem for a Clippers squad expected to make postseason noise after bringing aboard All-Star point guard Chris Paul back in December.
