Yes Camron, I believe that a patient whistle is the best practice on SDF plays to the basket.

But on a bang-bang block/charge play at L (when you're the only official with a call) is it best to make a quick, strong decision (when you're certain the defender did/didnt obtain LGP)? Or do you practice the patient whistle there too?
I gotta new attitude!
