NBA players can experience some embarrassing things on the court, but when you air ball two straight free throws, it’s pretty bad.
OKC Thunder guard-forward Andre Roberson did just that over the weekend, during a game with the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was so cringe-worthy that teammates tried to comfort him as he ran back to defend.
Your grandma can shoot free throws better than Andre Roberson can

It wasn’t a fluke for Roberson. His horrific free throw shooting is well-documented. Since joining the Thunder in 2013, he’s shot just .489 from the stripe. By comparison, Shaq shot .529 during his career… and he was terrible as well.
As you’d expect, Twitter roasted him hard. Below are a few of the fun Twitter had with Roberson.
I will forever be convinced that KD left OKC because of Andre Roberson and Andre Roberson only

If Andre Roberson went to the FT line and someone put a gun to your head and said if he make both, I won’t shoot. Plain and simple, you dead
