Now I can agree with this. Sometimes, whether the contact is incidental or illegal requires us to wait for the outcome. By all means, have a patient whistle. That said, I do not wait to see if a basket is made. I see whether, and by how much, the shot is affected by the contact. If there's no significant negative impact on the shot, it's likely incidental. If there is, then foul.
Sprinkles are for winners.
