The defender gets feet there in time, but then momentum carries his torso so he is leaning and way off balance. Does that lean not negate his lgp? I don't mind the block here.

Peace
Your bolded text says only that the guard shall attain LGP and nothing about feet on the floor.

You just have feet on the floor to establish LGP and if you have not done so you cannot be in LGP before the player leaves the floor. Nothing says that he must be still before the player goes airborne, which is what was suggested.

PC foul. Defender est LPG before A1 leaves the floor. Close, but I've seen much closer play vids posted on this forum.

I actually like the block call. Contact was with shoulder.. Looks like leaning at time of contact.
