I know what Dahntay Jones games all aobut but the other night it was all Kobe. he can come out and cry and generate laker faithful to whine just like him but he's dead wrong in his assessment of a foul needed to be called.

Freaking Bruce Bowen thought that was a dirty play by Jones and it should have been called. Bruce Bowen!

He was shooting a fadeaway. It's physically impossible to fade your upper body away from the basket without your legs being ahead of you. I'll illustrate this by showing you a picture of a guy who's the only damn reason you're commenting on this in the first place.



Watch the damn replay. Jones walked under him, and someone like Bowen should know. When Kobe went up for the shot, Jones' left foot was in the friggin' paint! When Kobe landed, Jones was standing next to the right side of the "W" in Hawks on the baseline. He covered a good 4 to 5 feet of distance while Kobe was in the air.

That's one of the dirtiest plays in basketball, and if you're around hoops, you know that this is frowned upon WAY more than the weak ass he-came-down-too-hard-with-his-arms fouls that they call flagrants on. I'd be furious if that play happened to one of my kids.
I agree it should have been a foul, gotta give the player room to land. Still think Kobe is exaggerating his injury though. Lucky for him and you guys he didnt really get hurt on that play
I'm of two minds generally about aggressively blocking out the shooter. It's smart defense IMO because the shooter is oftentimes the greatest offensive rebounding threat. But it's also a move that can be used as a pretext to mask an illicit intent to injure. I tend to have less sympathy for shooters who swing out their legs to gain an advantage, since their decision to do that contributes to the chance of injury.

Looked like this was dirty - Jones didn't even block him out, he just threw his leg under Kobe's - but Kobe will be back in a couple games.

LOL - that is an offensive foul?!? You've got to be kidding me. I've a feelin' you'd have a different opinion on it if someone did that to Derrick Rose and he twists his repaired knee. That was a dirty play. There is no need to do that.

I wonder what "All I see are big, black cocks" means on the Rorschach.

Negrodamus clearly has no clue what walking under a jumpshooter is.
Negrodamus, you should watch some tape on Bruce Bowen.

The NBA just admitted that they f**ked up and that should have been a foul, which isn't something that they do very often.

I do believe that is what is referred to as "In the face". lol
Theres no question it was a foul and a dirty play. Dahntay Jones has always played real dirty when hes defended Kobe i cant stand that dude. On another note mane i hate how his first name is spelled lol.

Kobe Bryant got Derek Fishered. Fisher always would creep underneath jump shooters.
