|Video : Did LeBron James Foul Kevin Durant?|
Yesterday's Game 2 of the NBA Finals ended in controversy with contact from LeBron James on a late play from the Thunder's Kevin Durant deemed a 'no-call.' Miami would eventually go on to win the game, and tie the series 1-1. With just 12 seconds left on the clock, and OKC having drawn within two-points (they were down as much as 17 at one point), Kevin Durant had the ball baseline and caught James off-guard.
He drove the ball hard baseline and attempted a shot, but not before James’ arm was clearly underneath Durant’s right arm and against his chest as Durant elevated up for the attempted game-tying shot. No call was made by referee Tony Brothers who was standing baseline, Durant's shot missed and James would eventually corral the rebound as Durant appealled for a whistle.
After the game Durant made no mention of a possible foul by James, simply stating it was a shot he would normally make.
“I think I shot a good shot. That’s a shot I shoot all the time. I just missed,” he said. “I missed the shot, man.”
Immediately following the play the debate amongst basketball fans was whether it was indeed a foul, or a good no-call? What do you think?
