The Lakers are losing by over 40 to the Mavericks, but once upon a time, it was a close game. At one point, they trailed by less than ten. This was still a competitive game when Kobe Bryant did this:
Sure, the shot clock was winding down, but there were still five seconds left! Five seconds for Kobe to get closer than 40 feet away! Still five seconds to pass! Instead, he took this (it's officially in the play-by-play as a 34-footer).
People had fun with this:

*Somebody* in the comments is going to point out that this isn't an airball, because it appears to juuuuuuuuuuust graze the rim, but, no, it misses the rim and gets some net, which by any classical definition of "airball" is an airball.
Your final score is Mavs, 140, Lakers, 106, dropping the Lakers to 3-10.
