NBL Amature Hour

Neutral fan here,
Watching Breakers vs Taipans now and just before the
End of the 3rd Cairns has the ball in bounding with 5 seconds on the clock and 2 seconds on the shot clock. Cairns import fails to get the shot off but the nerds on the score bench let the clock run out. After a review the refs give NZ the ball with .5 seconds left.

How can this league stuff up this bad? Give me a job NBL not some goon who went to uni who works for fox but does not know the common sence rules in basketball.

"Cairns import " - why give you a job when you don't even know who the player is.

Back to the OP, it made no sense to me at the time either.

But it also made no sense to me how Jawai only had 2 FTAs when he was fouled every time he shot the ball.

Wilson Sting, stop contributing to the thread and instead make fun of the original poster's spelling, because that's what the internet is all about.

So Wilson are you seriously suggesting Jawai should have gone to the line on 12 occasions?

Perth v breakers last month would have been the worst game in the last 10 years.

Yes. If the refs called the same amount of contact they do for on ball screening then yes.

Shame you never mentioned on ball screening in your 1st post. You simply said " when he was fouled every time he shot the ball."
MOre crap.

@ Wilson, seems Jawai still can't get a fair crack in this league? Still getting his arms hacked every time he goes for a basket?

Ignoring the possibility that you're referring to a species of wheat, stating that a word can be spelt (or spelled) would seem to be the height of redundancy. Almost tautological?

"Still getting his arms hacked every time he goes for a basket?"

Not always his arms, probably just as often his body is getting smashed.

He's a big boy, I know he can take it, but the point is they call an awful lot of fouls on players setting screens (or coming off screens) with much less contact than what he gets in the paint.

They also seem to call a lot of 'touch' fouls when people attack the basket, which don't affect their shot. I'm all for favouring the offensive team but why doesn't that apply to back to the basket players as well?

It's the overall inconsistency that is frustrating, not just the no calls on Jawai.

So where do you ref Wilson? NO calls are usually that. No calls. Not calls that you consider to be fouls.
