Offensive Player Initiates Contact on Jump Shot

It is becoming a common play for and offensive player to get a defensive player in the air with a shot fake, and once the defensive player is in the air, the offensive player initiates contact while attempting a shot, and a foul is called on the defensive player.

Obviously if the defensive player is vertical, then there is no foul.

In the circumstance where the offensive player is stationary, fakes a shot, and the defensive player jumps toward the offensive player, but the defensive players path in the air would avoid contact, and let him land to the side of the offensive player, shouldn't the the defensive player have the right to continue his path and land?
