It's no secret that Dwight Howard is a terrible free throw shooter. But how terrible?

Los Angeles Times columnist T.J. Simers was convinced that his daughter, Kelly Nielsen, could beat the seven-time All-Star in a free throw shooting contest.

"I bet I can shoot my free throws better left handed than you can shoot righty," responded Howard, a career 57.7% shooter from the line with his dominant hand.

He couldn't. Neilsen clinched her victory with her fifth make of the contest.

While Howard shot his free throws lefty, Simers and his daughter taunted him. Simers even brought up recent rumors that Howard is "intrigued" by the Houston Rockets. Nielson told him "Kobe thinks you're soft."
