Of course.  Now Minny can feel the way we do when Jones steps under Kobe's feet on an attempted game-winner, and gives him a bump in the air.

Damn right it should of been. I hate when the refs dont call a foul in the last seconds

 

Call the foul at the beginning of the game AND at the end of the game, BS

We woulda still won in OT. It's not also a for sure thing that Rubio would sink all 3. Don't forget it also sets up Kobe for a potential buzzer beater.

 It was certainly a foul and they have a legitimate gripe.  However, there were many fouls missed in that game and that one happened to come at the most unfortunate time.  Like Stu Lantz stated, who is admirably as unbiased as they come, "players make mistakes, and turn the ball over when they shouldn't so it's unreasonable to assume that the officials are going to make every call".  We've been the victim of this and last night was simply Minnesota's turn.  It sucks, but it's the way of it.  They have to do like we did and turn the page.


The game changes, the players turnover, but the Mamba remains a constant!

I guess I accept the reality that most fouls dont get called at the end of the game.  I recall Isiah Thomas saying years ago that he takes liberties at the end of games because the officials dont call stuff.  It is what it is.

 

Sometimes we beenfit from it, sometimes we are at the wrong end of it.

It defiantly should have been a foul and kobe treated that play extremely poorly. He just stood at the foul line and watched rubio get the ball and run right past him. Really Really childish of kobe. You missed the FT ok. Dont just pout about it , play some damn defense.

He never blocked him. He hit him on the arm. Not even close to a block.

Now they know how we feel. Plus forget about overtime, he still would have had to make all three free throws and he wasn't shooting that well from the line during the game...

Does that same contact happen to Kobe 3-5 times per gm & its always uncalled? Yes so F em all refs, Rubio, & Stern. they arent fighting for no playoffs.
