Free throws seem like they should be the easiest part of basketball – they’re called “free” for a reason, after all. In the NBA, it’s a chance for a player to catch his breath.
Ben Wallace: .414
Of everyone who has played in the NBA (and logged a minimum of 500 games and 500 free-throw attempts), Big Ben is the very worst free-throw shooter ever, suggesting that he might do better trying to stuff the basketball into a T-shirt cannon and taking that to the line.
But his most famous free throws were probably the ones he never got to take: On November 19, 2004, after getting fouled hard by Ron Artest, Wallace shoved the man now known as Metta World Peace, igniting the infamous melee known as “The Malice at the Palace.” The game was called off in the aftermath of the brawl, but we assume Ben would’ve missed the free throws anyway.
