Take a trip down memory lane as we share a crazy moment at the podium, an amazing posterization, an absolute on-court fail or a memorable shooting performance from the postseason of the National Basketball Association in This Day in NBA Playoffs History.
It doesn't matter how many free throws they attempt in practice, nothing can adequately prepare an NBA player for the pressures of playoff basketball. For his career, Gilbert Arenas shot a solid 80.3 percent from the charity stripe, however, when the Washington Wizards, who were down 3-2 in the series, were leading 113-112 with 15.1 seconds left in overtime during Game 6 of the 2006 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Agent Zero completely lost his touch from the line.
After missing his first attempt, Arenas looked stunned. And to make matters worse, LeBron James came over to Gil to plant one hell of a mental grenade by telling him, "You miss both of these free throws, y'all goin' home." Arenas missed his second shot and like LeBron guaranteed, the Cavs came away victorious and the Wiz were sent packing.
