LMAO. Laughable defense.

No sorry it was totally bogus... I saw it too


Did you not see him swing through and make contact with Kobe's right arm?

Yes, but it was mild and a judgement call for these crooks. Never liked that rule and it should be done away with. Everyone uses it but it is not fair when the offensive player can 'draw' a foul from a stationary player and invade the defensive players space.

The rule of thumb is generally that a player must swing through the OUTSTRETCHED arm of the defender. Dude reached forward and swung the ball into Kobe's elbow, just as Griffin swung the ball into Ron's armpit. Both calls were bulls***.

lol...calm down, bro.

I'll be the first one here to point out when the refs are calling a one-sided affair, especially with as many times Kobe gets hacked and slashed and ignored. But in this instance, it was pretty clear that Kobe fouled him.

That last play is inexcusable. We need to play better D in the 2nd half if we're to win this game. The refs also suck. They might as well be wearing Clippers uniforms. But whatever happens, I hope Kobe is all right.
Thanks for the sig, Jr. Kobe.

And Kobe was making body contact down low, not allowing space....

You two are making me argue in favor of the refs..and I'm not happy about that.

People are speculating it could be his right index finger reinjured. Not good. Our season is dependent on Kobe's health.

Should have been a no call, Foye initiated the contact with nowhere to go. Got bailed out.

Our rebounding also has to improve. I know the Clippers are athletic, but it's ridiculous they have more boards than we do.

Yeah, the swing through call needs to be looked at. If a defender is more or less standing still, it's kind of shady to give the offensive player that much leeway to create a foul. Defenders already have it extremely tough as is with the way the rules are, the least the league could do is give them some wiggle room in set situations like that.

As per Foye's swing through, Kobe's arms were bent backward and Foye leaned forward and barely caught Kobe's elbow. With the clock winding down and Foye otherwise being completely trapped/unable to make a shot, really should have been a no-call. You want refs to call things evenly, but bail-out calls, technically correct as they may be, hurt the game.
