The Brooklyn Nets won their matchup against the Detroit Pistons 93-90 on Wednesday, but Nets forward Mirza Teletovic airballed three-straight shots within 40 seconds, which was by far the most interesting aspect of the game.  

And oh, how delightful they were. 

Yahoo! Sports reports (h/t SportsGrid) that Detroit's announcer George Blaha would later exclaim, "And he misses another one! Three air balls in a row, that has to be an NBA record!"

Perhaps. I like to think it is more than an NBA record, if that is indeed what it is. I like to think this is some masterful painting Teletovic created with three magnificent brush strokes. It truly is something you sit back and watch in awe. 

Of course, we have to bring up the fact Kobe Bryant did nearly the same thing in the NBA playoffs. 

ESPN takes you back to May 1997, when the Lakers were playing the Jazz in Game 5 of the NBA playoffs. 

The Mamba took four shots and airballed them, more so because he was taking audacious shots like he always does but not finding rim with any of them. 

So, chin up, Teletovic. If history is any guide, you may soon become one of the best players in the league, and then you will have to end your career babysitting Dwight Howard

For Nets fans, if you happen to take in a live game and Teletovic goes up to shoot, you should probably duck.
