VIDEO: Basketball player misses 4 easy shots, saved from embarrassment by his own incompetence

We really need to start watching more Belgian basketball.

SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN in sport and you think “Wow, that’s pretty dumb.”

This is one of those things.

This YouTube clip from Belgian basketball’s fifth division has picked up over 100,000 views in two days after an unidentified player won a free-throw rebound (good) but then proceeded to miss four of the easiest lay-ups you will ever see (bad).

So far, so embarrassing but it gets worse for the player in question who had to be stopped by a team-mate — because he was shooting into his own basket.

The mind boggles.
