There's a reason I've called him Dirtay Jones for the past 5 years. Regardless of his intent on the play, you MUST give the offensive player room to come down and land. The fact that he's a repeat offender makes it hard for me to give him the benefit of the doubt. The league put some very weak rules in place in attempt to protect the shooter, like Kobe asked, but the only penalty is a foul that is sometimes called or completely missed like in this situation. The penalty should be much stiffer due to the serious danger this puts the offensive player in. An ejection/suspension is a MUST, obviously if it was at the end of the game, then the penalty wouldn't be enforced until the next game. Wilbon said something similar today and compared this need to how the NFL has cracked down on certain hits on receivers.
Back to Dirtay, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck...odds are it isn't a damn chimp.
Hopefully the team can rally around these circumstances and Dwight/Nash can P&R teams to death for the next 2-3 games.
