VIDEO: Jamaal Magloire Airballs A Free Throw In A Bad Way

Years ago, I was at a college basketball exhibition game. It was early in the preseason and the Washington State Cougars were facing a small, NAIA school from down the road. One of those tune-up games where the bigger school waxes the floor with the lower-level school.

The crowd was decent enough, but it was also quiet enough at times that one could talk across the floor to an opposing coach or player. And after a small-statured guard from the NAIA school airballed a free throw -- missing everything in a bad way -- the arena went dead silent. One man took it upon himself to yell "Hit the weights 22," addressing the airball victim.

It's a moment I still remember for whatever reason. All of this was to say Jamaal Magloire managed to pull off something that seemed much worse on Friday night. Yes, he airballed a free throw, but as @netw3rk noted, Magloire was about three feet short.

Also note Dwane Casey's face as the camera cuts to him.

Three point game with a chance to pull the Raptors within one and Magloire airballs the first of two free throws. And it gets better: He'd already airballed a free throw in the quarter.

Where amazing happens, you guys.
