Top Definition
n. a rare phenomenon in basketball whereupon the ball gets wedged in between the side of the rim and the backboard (the nook), resulting in a stoppage of play and a jump ball. Usually caused by a horrible shot, the nookball can also be a deadly weapon in a game of "HORSE."
"Jimmy's NBA dreams were crushed in 3rd grade pee-wee ball, when he fired up a nookball, sending both teams and their parents into a laughing frenzy"
