    Bender has a pretty ugly shot,the way he shots the ball it seems like he is playing hot potato and wants to get the ball out of his hand as soon as possible, I have no idea how the shot goes in.

    Peja kinda has a funky shot as well. The way he brings it back over his head and releases is a lil odd. ESPECIALLY for a Euro b-ball player.

    That's the truth. End of discussion, IMO.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    A quick Google search on Marty Conlon yielded the following fascinating page:

    http://www.sonicscentral.com/9192.html

    Look for player evaluations for future Pacers McKey, Pierce, and Johnson.

    And the blurb about Conlon "a game only a mother could love" - perfect.

    Wow, I can't believe this discussion has lasted this long and there has been no mention of Chris "Clank" Dudley.

    Watching him at the free throw line was hilarious, embarassing, and sad all at the same time. No one has had a worse free throw stroke.

    Other dishonorable mentions:

    Dennis Rodman (remember when he started shooting 3s and do I even have to mention FTs?)
    Ben Wallace
    Dikembe Mutombo
    Mark Jackson (mainly his jumper... the teardrop was great)
    Shawn Marion (one of my favorite players but that release is so unorthodox)

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Yep. Marty Conlon, Bill Cartwright. And let's not forget Shaq's squirt shot at the FT line. And Wilt had fine form at the FT line as well. I guess that's why he shot so many hooks.

    Chris Dudley once went to the free throw line, the worst foul shooter in the nba, to shoot 2. There were TWO lane violations. He missed all four.

    There is NOTHING ugly about Ben Wallace's shooting style, except the result.

    That's kind of like saying, "That chic would be cute if she didn't have all those warts on her face." The fact remains that ugly is ugly.

    We're talking solely about shooting form though, and Ben's isn't ugly. He's just a poor shooter. Tayshaun on the other hand, has one elbow way out to his side, and looks like he's shooting the thing with just his thumbs. Shawn Marion looks like he's throwing a half-assed chest pass at the rim.

    Patrick Ewing and Anthony Mason always used to throw me off because they always shot it on the way down, instead of on the way up or at the peak of their jump.

    We aren't listing BAD shooters, we're listing UGLY shooters.

    Ben's shooting form isn't ugly at all.

    Ben's actually got decent form. Watch him shoot and just study the form. It's fine.

    The problem with Ben is he's got no touch. None. Most of these players mentioned thus far had touch to overcome their odd form. You can teach proper shooting mechanics and fundamentals but you can't teach touch. You either have it or you don't. And Ben has none.
