When is an airball not a shot attempt?  If that's actually the rule it's pretty stupid.
Write a letter.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

When the referee doesn't think it was one.  Its been the rule for a long time now.

I'm confused.  Doesn't an airball mean that you're shooting the ball?

Example. A player picks up his dribble and is quickly closed out by a big man. The player "shoots" an airball, quickly gets around the big to get the "rebound." A ref would rightly judge this to not be an actual shot attempt.

This rule changed probably 30 years ago by the way. You likely didn't notice because its not a common occurrence.

So the ref determines that shot as a pass??  Like it was an alley oops?

Why is this so hard to understand? If someone shoots an airball, and the ref considers it a legit shot attempt, they can be the first to touch it. If the refs believes otherwise, then its a travel.

For arguments sake, it.can be considered a dumb rule because it adds subjectivity.

When is an airball not a "legit shot attempt"?  None of this makes any sense to me.

If someone threw an alley oop but it completely misses the intended target, would you call that an airball?

I think you’re looking at it backward. To me, an airball by definition is a shot that misses everything. A pass that misses everything is neither a shot nor an airball.

At some point there might be a question of whether the player was intending to shoot or pass. But usually it isn’t hard to tell.

Feels like a sweet 16 game. High level play and shot making.

Also a recipe for how these teams will lose.  Neither is good at getting multiple stops
