    I have heard the term "fram" used to describe the act of attempting a hard shot with no skill, or put another way, a reckless shot in hopes of a good outcome.

    He didn’t mean to pocket the 3 ball. He just closed his eyes and frammed it.


    He clearly has no clue what he is doing. He just frams every shot.
