    It's surprisingly hard to find the NBA rule book definition of every rule (the FIBA is easy) but here is from a NBA release when they instituted this rule; known as the Reggie Miller Rule.

    "call offensive fouls on shooters who blatantly kick out their legs to initiate contact."

    Blatantly kick to initiate contact. No way that applies to this shot.
    Here:

    That wording doesn't exist in there, as far as I can tell. It was probably an instruction to officials rather than an official rule change.

    Lets be honest, that was easily THE MOST BULLSHIT CALL in the history of whatever. How the hell is that an offensive foul? In who's universe? The exact same thing t Ross got called for against the lakers. And what stings more is that you know we would've come back to win that game too

    Then get a 4th Ref watching all the angles from another room who can overturn whistles as inadvertent/reverse calls/tell them when they need to review. Id rather the NBA be more based on REALITY than a smoother game.
    Whose to say that ref wont be a piece of shit like the others?

    What gig? All it takes is have the refs on the court converge to discuss before announcing any disputed call.
    Sorry dude, I quoted the wrong post.

    That's what my Joey Crawford comment was aimed at. Them having an extra ref sitting in a room watching the plays and trumping calls made on the floor.

    I feel like they should treat it like the nfl. The nfl referees are a lot less likely to call a pass interference down the stretch of a game in the end zone. It should be the same sort of thing.

    If you know an offensive foul call is going to change the ending of a game swallow your whistle. Possibly a defensive foul, definitely a no call.

    I think it was fairly obvious that Lowry didn't kick his leg out to get a foul called. He was fading away in a natural motion. Leg kick fouls are generally very obvious.

    Yea, then watch them give that gig to the more senior refs like Joey Crawford.
