The Basketbawful History Committee
would like to officially recognize Dominique Wilkins
, the first NBA player to miss 1,000 shots in a season (1,038 to be exact, in1984-85
).You think he's going to shoot it?
Dominque reached this dubious milestone again - twice!!
- in 1985-86
(1,011 misses) and 1987-88
(1,048 misses), paving the way for a entire generation of selfish shotmongers and bricklayers, such as Jerry Stackhouse
, Allen Iverson
, Antoine Walker
, and, of course, our favorite ballhog Kobe Bryant
. Thanks 'Nique!
