Eric Bledsoe went to throw an in-bounds pass after drawing an offensive foul against the Los Angeles Clippers’ Rodney McGruder. The Milwaukee Bucks led by just seven points at the top of the fourth quarter, and this one was likely to go to the final buzzer. Every possession mattered ... and then Bledsoe just dribbled the ball into play.
You most definitely can not do this. It’s legal in pick-up games at the court behind your high school, but in an NBA game, you have to actually throw the ball to someone. Anyone, really. Just not yourself. And you definitely can’t just dribble the ball into play.
Bledsoe’s mistake was so hilarious that not a single soul laughed. Not a Bucks teammate or Clippers opponent.
