I've seen badly airballed free throws before, but I've never seen a free throw that landed further from the basket than most blindfolded half-court halftime contest shots.

The best part of that clip is the announcers. If this were a big-time college bball game, the announcers would have said something like "I'm not quite sure what happened there; a little short of the mark". These guys tell you what they're thinking.

I once airballed a free-throw in a HS Freshman ball game.  We were up by 2 and I was fouled with, say, 2.3 seconds left; we were in the bonus.  I missed the first aforementioned free-throw.  Straight Air Ball.  They then proceeded to in-bound the ball, us in 3/4 full court press.  Their PG dribbled up the sideline and about 15 feet from halfcourt chucked up a prayer that banked off the glass and went in.  We Lose.

Moral of the story...It would have been better if I pulled off the shot above as everyone would have been laughing their asses off at me and their Hail Mary shot probably doesn't happen becasue they'd be wondering WTF they just witnessed.
