Joakim Noah: Owner Of The Worst Attempted Jump Shot In NBA History

Joakim Noah, come on, man.

Joakim Noah's jump shot is broken.

Let's break this down a little bit, shall we? Did you notice his assistant coach on the bench in the tie just immediately look down and scratch his head?

The play starts out extremely awkward to begin with. At first, Noah is clearly looking for a pass to make as he awkwardly takes a step over the three point line. Imagine if he actually pulled up for three, would the shot have made it to the restricted area?

Maybe Noah's legs are completely shot and he's so worn out that getting the ball to the basket is harder than we think. No, that can't be the case seeing as how the game is barely three minutes old when he takes the shot.

It's no secret that Noah's shot isn't the prettiest in the NBA, it's actually probably the ugliest in the league and his free throw form is unbelievably horrid. But hey, he's made it work seeing how he just signed his name to a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks. Outside the paint isn't where Noah makes his money, clearly.

New York fell to the Pistons last night 102-89 and Noah ended the night with just two points going 1-for-4 from the field.
