Green wing was moving towards the left post. When that happened, I was going to help and contest the other player, but my guy that I was guarding, with his back to the hoop, was moving down the block, so that I could not get past him. To me, that seemed like a moving screen, but he said he was just moving normally around the court.
Your competitor is full of you-know-what. If he is restricting you from coming to play help defense then he may certainly be subject to a foul for illegal screening. I have seen this a couple times, especially in those situations where the offensive player argues "I was just posting up". That's on our judgement and why we get paid to make those decisions.
