The thought is...even at real speed the defender didn't do anything illegal.

Tough call to make. The replay does show the defender moving upon impact. The official made a god call afaict.

Moving in what manner? If a coach asked you why you called a block on this play, would you be able to explain it to him?

A) Yes, the defender was moving upon, even prior to impact -- legally, having establishing LGP.

B) The official did not make a god call, as it was incorrect and God doesn't make mistakes.

C) I know a handful of languages, but am having trouble translating "god call afaict." A little help here?

LGP was established, he is allowed to move!!!

In my opinion, the official blew this one...I would have had a charge.

This is a PC Foul all the way. And yes you can move once establishing LGP and this defender was moving backwards.

Peace

Agree.
The video wasn't real clear to enable us to verify where the official's eyes were during the drive, but this bears all the indications of one of those times when his eyes were on the dribbler and not on the defender. LGP just seemed to be too obvious to miss, unless there's something about the angle of the camera I'm missing.

CURSOR....I mean block. Looks like the defender moved sideways when the offensive player was airborne. Could have been a slip PC had the defender not moved, but we will never know.

Charge. Defender was there well before contact and did nothing wrong.

I have a PC foul - as others have said, defender clearly established LGP and didn't do anything wrong.

PC foul all the way. It looks to me that the offensive player with the ball simply slams into and runs over the defensive player like a run away freight train.
