As the Chicago Bulls visited the AT&T Center on Wednesday night to do battle with the San Antonio Spurs, guard Tony Parker found himself at the charity stripe to shoot a free throw after Joakim Noah picked up a technical foul.

I'm using the word shoot very loosely here. I'm also being awfully generous by saying that it got halfway to the rim.

It was more of a drop and less of a shot than anything. 


Parker was given another chance to shoot the free throw and was able to redeem himself by putting it through the net.

This isn't the first time Parker has tried this trick, either.
