Between this and bjjs sticking up for Violet Palmer and Joey Crawford, this has to be considered trolling at this point.

The trolling is seeing how many times he will respond to it and how deep a hole he will dig.

whatever, pause the video at 10 seconds...he already landed on his left foot with his right sticking way out.

And the thing is, it makes sense that he would do it. He has a bigger guy guarding him, but he has to get the three off, of course he's going to try to take some insurance out on the play by drawing some contact. The official caught the lie on the application and he didn't get paid.

I at least understand the argument that it was a defensive foul. It's a grey area. But it's undeniable that Lowry tried drawing the contact with his right leg and even his shooting arm.

Lowry is masterful at getting calls. But it does work against him at times. For some reason his few attempts to get a whistle are counted against him over time while Durant and Harden can spend whole games just looking for calls.

In this situation i only see a guy focused on making the shot. I think you have to be looking at the play as being an attempt to get a call before it happens in order to see it that way. Especially in real time. The leg comes out as he falls backwards after landing. It had no effect on the defender, who appeared to foul him after arriving late on the closeout.

If nothing else it proves the lie to what Leo droned on about in regard to calls coming to the aggressor. The refs in this game constantly looked at plays very differently depending on which team was involved.
