Ref Daddy has a good list. I would agree we as officials probably don't reward the offense often enough for being in the shooting motion. In the original situation, if the post player has turned to shoot, it seems realistic he is in the shooting motion. Sometimes on these post plays the foul could be contact on the catch of the pass BEFORE he turns, so a non-shooting foul is correct. While I'm not advocating high school officials go to the extremes in the NBA, I think we should take a good look at the play and make a proper determination of when the shooting motion starts.
