André Roberson Is Really Bad at Free Throw Shooting

Poor bastard.

André Roberson of the Oklahoma City Thunder plays basketball very well, particularly on the defensive end.

However, dude's rather flummoxed by this free throw shooting thing.

The Houston Rockets beat the Thunder 113-109 to take a 3-1 lead in the series, and Roberson's crippling deficiencies at the charity stripe played a glaring role in the outcome.

Charity stripe has never sounded so cruel.

How bad was it?

Well, Roberson was being openly mocked by the Rockets bench as he butchered one free throw after another.

That is so not cool.

Roberson missed 10 of 12 free throws for the game.

This includes 6 of 8 in a 42-second stretch of the fourth quarter when the Rockets correctly deduced that they should simply keep putting this dude on the line.

In an act of pure humanity, Thunder coach Billy Donovan finally benched the helpless Roberson.

No choice, really.

This sort of strategy is certainly not revolutionary or particularly entertaining, but it can be devastatingly effective.

Roberson is clearly not having as much fun.
