This is funny as heck in a game the Rockets were about to win in LA, The fans were cheering when Boban missed his first free-throw, because if the opposition misses two in a row, the fans get free chicken. So watch what Boban does. I love Boban! [@michaelbeck]

Many NBA arenas offer promotions to incentivize fan engagement during games. A common promotion is “Bricken for Chicken,” where fans receive free food (often chicken sandwiches) if a visiting player misses two consecutive free throws in the fourth quarter.
