    yeah, you could make the argument if you're a moron. odom obviously went for the block(hence the goal tending call) and their legs got tangled up.

    Tony Parker flopped himself in to the front row because he was trying to sell the foul that didn't even happen. That's what spurs do when they know they're going to miss.
    Except Brent Barry, I guess.

    How about when Tim Duncan walked all the way from the 3 point line to lay it in? lmao

    Then there's that. But this is why the last bad call didn't matter. They caught enough breaks the rest of the game. For instance, since that Ginobili 3 shouldn't have counted, they would have been down 3 points meaning 2 shots at the line would only lose the game for them.

    While I never saw the game, that picture is hardly evidence his foot is on the line.

    For one, you can't see his left foot and two, the picture is too small to tell anyway.

    yea you're agreeing with the guy who doesn't think duncan's a superstar and thinks ginobili's just lucky. Oh yea and thinks derek fisher is better than tony parker. You guys know they review that stuff during the timeouts? I have no idea how from that picture you can tell his foots on the line. And there's bad calls the whole game for both teams. Look at kobe taking 5 small steps on their last possession (they showed it on sportscenter). The amazing thing is people always talk about the spurs being whiners. How about phil jackson blaming the refs in the first quarter and lamar odom and kobe bryant whining about the officials after the game. I lose respect for teams who blame the officials even after the games over. Everyone during any sport complains during the game but after the game shows if you take responsibility for the way you play. I really hope joey crawford doesn't do any more spurs game. I don't think he cost it last night but I don't like how at the end of the game he could cost them the game with his whistle because we all know he has something against the spurs.

    Uh...if the BLACK line has a WHITE SHOE covering it, odds are his foot is on the line. That's not exactly tough detective work guys, christ lol.

    I saw the Manu Ginobli three last night, and the first thing I thought was that his foot was on the line. The person I was watching the game with thought his foot was on the line as well. We backed it up and watched it again, and I still thought that his foot was on the line.

    I can see how you thought his foot was possibly on the line it was very close. But again in case you didn't know during each timeout they look at calls like that and determine if it was a 2 or 3. Apparently they had evidence that said it was a 3 and they didn't have enough evidence to say it was a 2.
