I saw Bill Russell do it in the 60s. I saw Dave Cowens do it in the 70s. I’ve seen Dwight Howard do it at least a half dozen times.
It appears the Clippers missed those highlight reels and memos. And at least a paragraph in the rule book.
That was a sweet inbounds pass by Jae Crowder. That was an even sweeter lightning dunk by Deandre Ayton. And that’s a 2-0 lead for the Suns. Yeah, Ayton was above the cylinder. And, yeah, it was perfectly legal. You can’t make a basket directly with an inbounds pass. Ergo an inbounds pass cannot be a shot. So there can be no “goaltending” on an inbounds pass.
That was a fine play, born in the “fine print.”
Clippers? Down Love-Two. Weren’t they also there about 15 minutes ago? That turned out all right for them. This still might, too.
“You’re once…..twice….three times a baby….” Really, Joe Girardi? You sic the umps on Max Scherzer THREE TIMES for “sticky stuff” inspections? I think you’re just jealous of Scherzer because he still has at least some hair. (I’m jealous, too, actually.)
Cheating is more a part of the baseball culture than Vin Scully Wannabe Announcers. I blame all that organ music and possible sunflower seed poisoning for the rampant chicanery. Here’s my position, Just do it. Pitchers should be able to take a can of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup to the mound along with their rosin bag. They should be allowed to just serve up a hot fudge sundae.
Kudos to Yankees pitcher Garrit Cole, who when recently asked if he puts sticky stuff on the ball, responded, “Uhhhhhh.” Eloquent. And accurate. Football! You know who I’m fired up about? Justin Herbert. More manana.
