I'll have it up later tonight if it isn't already posted by then.

It was extremely close but it should've been a PC. Sorry I can't post video but I had to go frame by frame on what I saw to determine the call.

I'm actually shocked Valentine didn't jump in and call it. He actually had a perfect view from the T.

B1 has LGP before A1 leaves the floor, so I think PC is the correct call. That said, from the L's vantqage point it probably did look like a block because B1 comes in from the side.

Tell me what I'm missing here, guys:

2 feet down in front of the ball handler, contact in the torso. Looks like the defender established LGP before the shooter went airborne.

I'll admit this is very, very close -- I watched it a number of times on my DVR before thinking "this would be a good play for the forum."

Rich, in my opinion the left foot of the defender is still sliding to the right & his body moves slightly right when the contact occurs.

The endline angle is the best look.

Charge

At :20 secs... Looks like defender obtains LGP while A1 is two steps away. Then the defender moves laterally and contact is in the chest.

I'd go PC on this...

here's my philosophy: "a block is a block, a charge is a charge, and everything else is a charge".

translation: the obvious blocking fouls are blocks, the obvious charges should be called a charge, and everything else in between those two - are charges.

officials default to a blocking foul WAY too much, imho.

I'd rather apply consistent principles than default to anything. I could see this one going either way, especially having to do so in real time.

Not sure what else the defender could have done better.....LGP is there...I would have liked an offensive foul there but close enough where a block is acceptable.

Was there a similar 50/50 play that was called a block earlier in the game?
