In a season of lows, this quarter might be the worst. It must be a night game on the full moon late in the month, can't expect them to get up for it.
You definitely shouldn't get the basket, two free throws and then possession.This flagrant 1 for contesting a shot, having your foot below someone shooting, and them landing on it is the dumbest rule in the NBA....and that's saying a lot.
It happens 40 times a game, it's totally unavailable if you contest a shot. It only comes up when the offensive player happens to land on someone's foot but it's entirely random when that happens.
The only time it should be considered for flagrant is if you obviously just stick your foot out. But not when its just a normal defensive basketball effort/contest.
It happens on nearly every contested jump shot, especially fall aways. There is no way to contest without jumping up and towards the player at least a little bit, and you can't chop off your feet mid air. They have to land somewhere.You definitely shouldn't get the basket, two free throws and then possession.
Brad's worse season topping Kyrie's Farewell TourInteresting contrast between how these two coaches have implemented the way they want their teams to play. One team executes over and over again, and the other team looks like the players just met a minute before tipoff
