It’s not too often in the NBA that you get to see a player take a shot at the wrong basket, but that’s exactly what Nate Robinson did in a recent Knicks-Nets game.
The shot occurred with half a second left on the clock in the first quarter of play. Apparently Robinson thought time had run out and turned to take what he thought was an invalid shot, but in fact was performed before the buzzer.
After the shot you can see Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni yelling at Robinson. Here’s our question, why didn’t he just throw it at his own basket, it may have at least scored his team some points.
The Nicks still won, but Nate Robinson will have a hard time living down this wrong basket shot.
