Default NBA Players who have shot airballs at the freethrow line

Probably the most awkward thing that can happen on an NBA court. Unbelievable how it can happen to these pros who shoot the ball everyday, but hilarious either way.

here are a list of players I found on youtube (most videos are very short, 10 secs length):

Blake Griffin (2 in a row )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10qIOjwBCUk

DeAndre Jordan
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN8GVYhsXC8

Rondo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSfP8HR7dOY

Ben Wallace
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVj0FbhECOI

Jamal Magloire: (14 sec, team down 3, choked big time )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ty7oUOn3v_Y

DeSagana Diop (hilarious )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFr9hxUCuHU

Emeka Okafor (twice in a row as well )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkB43s_o1cs

Lebron James
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i--mrQzEl14
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxT46ROgI50
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-sIJ_URnAA

Enjoy.

I saw the AK47 airball as I youtubed but didn't post since it wasn't in an NBA game
Hakeem and his teammate's reaction are hilarious

I airballed a freethrow once. I was 11, and it was at practice. Still very embarrassing. I can't imagine how bad it must be for one of these superstars to do it front of thousands of people.

It's probably worse for LeBron, Hakeem, STAT, AK47 because they're all at least 70%+ FT shooters. Guys like Ben Wallace come up there expecting to miss anyways.

These are more embarrassing than Lin's airball three-pointer (which is also embarrassing, no denying that). But Lin is crucified because he's Asian and all these guys get a pass.

Nikka pleaze.

I just don't know how you could possibly consecutively miss two

If I were a free throw shooter like Bierdrins or Wallace, I wouldn't even practice them. What are you going to do, drop from 40 to 30%? Big deal. What a waste of time.

I mean, even tossing the ball two hands with a bit of aim at the rim, you have a chance right? But airball
