Richie Frahm, 2004

Last season in Houston [2004], the Sonics' Richie Frahm drove for a layup after the Rockets had conceded defeat. A Houston player fouled him, and Steve Francis and Mark Jackson screamed at Frahm as he was shooting free throws. Ray Allen met Frahm at the free-throw line and said, "Don't do that. Don't ever do that." -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Sasha Vujacic, 2008

In 2008, in the Western Conference finals the Lakers led, 97-92, with the clock ticking down on the series clincher when Sasha Vujacic put up a 3-pointer and sunk it at the buzzer. The Spurs had put on a full-court press but once the ball swung to Vujacic no defender jumped out at him. It was a classless act and just about every fan of the NBA chided Vujacic for taking the shot. But there was a small contingent that fell in love with him that night: Those who bet on the Lakers and the 7-point spread. Those gamblers could care less about the unwritten rules. -- Real Clear Sports
