Rajon Rondo is the worst free throw shooter in the NBA so far this year
Last night Rajon Rondo went 2-for-10 at the free throw line.
The 8 missed FTs are a career high for Rajon Rondo, who is now 6-for-20 from the line this season. #celtics

Rondo's FT% (30.0) is NBA's worst among players who've attempted 10 FTs this year.

It's actually even worse then Rohrbach says. A total of 360 players have made a free throw in the NBA this season (notice the italics on the "a"). Rondo's percentage ranks 356th. Only Jason Thompson (2-for-8), Jason Maxiell (1-for-4), Elton Brand (1-for-4) and Thomas Robinson (1-for-6) are shooting worse. The next-lowest player who's attempted as many free throws as Rondo is 345th-ranked Andre Drummond at 14-for-33 (42.4%).
This is a story today because Rondo went 0-for-3 at the line last night with two seconds remaining and the Celtics down by four.
But in his defense, Rondo missed the last one on purpose.
