The whistle clearly blows, then it’s a goof around fest. That’s how the NBA works.
Once that ball is dead, the next guy shoots it for fun, players may try to mess with him, usually a guy jumps up and goaltends the shot.
But none of that matters because the ball was already dead.
This is amazing. Whistle blows cause ball is out of bounds. Guys takes a deadball practice three. He gets fouled by a guy on the opposing bench. Ref counts the 3 and sends him to the line for 1. All on a dead ball practice 3. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/zUZOJszl6k

Everyone who’s ever seen an NBA game knows exactly what I’m talking about, except for apparently the refs in Charlotte last night.
