Ugliest looking jump shots

The college 3 point contest has inspired me to make this thread. John Shurna of Northwestern has one of the ugliest looking jump shots I have ever seen, and the remarkable thing is that he is a hell of a shooter (44 percent from 3) in spite of his awkward form.

With that being said, who do you think has the ugliest/most awkward jump shot in either the college or pro ranks?

Big Bill Cartwright is

Big Bill Cartwright is a good call, so sticking with former players Bill Lambeer had a terrible, laser beam flat J and shot the 3 both often and fairly well. Also, does Anthony Mason's bizarre Free Throw form count?

Yes, Bill Cartwright is the

Yes, Bill Cartwright is the guy that came to mind as soon as i saw this thread. Lets keep the legendary Big Bill Laimbeer outta this one :) haha.

Speaking of Bill - he quickly worked out he wasn't fast or athletic enough around the rim so thats why he improved his outside shot over his career.

4 all -star games, led the league in rebounding, 2 rings. A guy everyone hated but also one of the first guys you would choose to have on your own side.... Not bad for a 3rd round draft pick who was slow, non athtletic and couldn't jump...

Cole Aldrich for me

Cole Aldrich for me ...sheesh. I wonder how someone can pick up a ball and say hmm, I'll just bring this as far back behind my head as posiible and launch it at the basket. I mean, it's amazing how the form is natural for some of these players lol

I would have to say Bismack

I would have to say Bismack Biyombo. He doesn't even really have a jumpshot, he just kinda throws the ball toward the rim... I wouldn't say it's ugly at all, but Kevin Martin's form is so unique I think it has to be mentioned..

Nazr Muhammed's jumpshot

Nazr Muhammed's jumpshot looks wrong, it's good, but it looks like a glitch in a video game

Chuck Hayes free throw is

Chuck Hayes free throw is ridiculous
Shawn Marion looks like he never even tried learning how to shoot
Ronnie Brewer had a waterside accident when he was a kid so his elbow sticks out when he shoots
Joakim Noah shoots the ball with a side spin lol

Josh Childress and Kevin

Josh Childress and Kevin Martin both have awkward hip shots.

Demarcus Nelson had a broken jumper at duke.

Kevin Duckworth RIP had a 1 handed jumper.
