One that I frequently see is a desperation heave at the end of a quarter where the offense bowls over the defender on the attempt. Of course the offense is looking to the ref for a foul call. My opinion is that the shot is at the buzzer so the play is dead and there is no foul. Back in the days when I was a ref I called an offensive/player control foul during a Men's Rec League game. The offensive player heaved a shot with 3-4 seconds left and bowled over the defender. Both of them were on the floor a second or so before the buzzer. The offensive guy was not too happy but the defender was standing at half court with both hands up and took it squarely in the chest.
