Found February 07, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
I’m going to be honest with you, I didn’t have any idea as to who Mirza Teletovic was until last night when I was watching the Brooklyn Nets and the Detroit Pistons. Just before he hoisted his first shot of the evening, Nets’ announcer Ian Eagle said, this is why he is in the game…air ball. Now, I’m assuming Eagle meant that he was there to knockdown threes. But then, Teletovic took two more shots and missed everything, again. This all happened within one minute of game play in the 3rd quarter. So, Teletovic’s line for the night” 4 mins, no rebounds, no assists, no blocks, no steals, 0-3 from the field, all air balls. If the Pistons actually had a crowd on hand, he probably would have been taunted.

Nets Player Mirza Teletovic Air Balls Three Strait Jump Shots (Video)

It's not often you see NBA players air ball jump shots unless the shot gets tipped.  Mirza Teletovic of the Brooklyn Nets accomplished this feat last night.....three consecutive times.  Although Mirza only averages about eight minutes and 3.4 points a game, he still needs to shoot better than this.  I would almost have to compare this to a hat trick in soccer or hockey...
