His arms were intentionally all over Kobe because he knew what Kobe was tryin to do. This is why he's makin a big deal about this foul in game 5. They shown tons of replays on TNT, and even that inside take so we can hear what's goin on... Kobe asked the ref why wasn't the foul called, and Kobe explained that he tried to draw the foul, and that Bowen's arms weren't up, but down on him. The ref went on to say that he failed Physics in HS, and that we wouldn't know anything about that
Well once again the foul is in the eyes of the beholder. I thought Bowen's arms were up. I guess it is all in who you root for. From my seat I think that Kobe and Shaq get away with everything. But I guess Laker fans don't see it that way. Right?? I thought Danny Crawfords explanation of flunking physics proved that even refs see it differently. Tim was hacked to death last night in Jersey however I guess the refs decided that they didn't want to watch Tim shoot poorly from the line. Kenyon Martin is a thug. I thought he should of fouled out in the third quarter. Seeing is believing.
