NBA Stars getting foul calls?

I thought superstars got were supposed to get all the calls?

Did anyone see the last shot attempt made by Lebron James and no foul was called?

Peace

Consider score, time, and situation and also where the game was played at. As much as I am huge Pistons fan, that was a foul on Hamilton.

Actually John I am going to have to disagree with you. For full disclosure I am a Piston fan as well. But this was not a foul if you look at the replay that was basically floor level. Hamilton put his hand on the ball and there was incidental contact with the arms. If you get the ball first, incidental contact should be after. This is especially the truth when the shooter was not knocked down. I would not call that foul in a middle school game.

Peace

So what about the beginning of the drive, when Hamilton stuck his left hand in LeBron's chest and used it to slow him down...nothing there either?

I saw Lebron use his right arm to get space and Hamilton held his ground. If anything, the play with Wallace where he Wallace hit the winning basket was a bigger foul than anything that took place on that final play.

I assume you are referring to an offensive foul on Wallace, right? If so, I would agree..I didn't really think there was a foul at the end of LeBron's move, but they never really showed a replay of the beginning which - when I first saw it live - made me go "Hmmmm".

I will admit I did not see the entire play, but that looked like a clear push off. I wonder if the officials thought the Cleveland player flopped.

I think there was pushing on both of the players parts and the officials just let it go. I saw the play live and that was my first impression. I thought that Hamilton might have even fouled. When I saw the replay I think my first impression was at the very least wrong. I think it was a great no call all the way.

Peace

My wife asked me if I was going to watch the basketball game. I said "What basketball game? There's a wrestling match on that's gonna end up around 72-69." It sounds like I was right.

The NBA....unwaaaaaaatchable! And boring as hell......

I went to NBA.com to take a look at it. It's at:

http://www.nba.com/video/

Click on "Wallace's Big Fourth". Play it on "slow" speed.

Is that a foul under basketball rules? Definitely!

Is it a foul under NBA rules? Apparently not!

The last-second drive video by LeBron is on there too.

He looks good btw, lost a lot of weight.

Huh? I didn't get a commercial with that link. I clicked on the picture and it goes right into the video. Maybe your computer needs an exorcist?

And......when did Marv stop wearing wimmen's clothes?

I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK.....
