Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless debate whether it was a dirty play by Dahntay Jones that led to Kobe Bryant’s injury.
The NBA’s official statement on the incident:
“With 4.9 seconds remaining in the Atlanta Hawks‘ 96-92 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on March 13, the Lakers‘ Kobe Bryant attempted a jump shot over the Hawks‘ Dahntay Jones. After review at the league office, video replay confirmed that referees missed a foul call on Jones as he challenged Bryant’s shot and did not give him the opportunity to land cleanly back on the floor. Bryant should have been granted two free throws.”
Tim Legler discusses the most prominent storylines for the second half of the NBA season; such as Dwight Howard’s future with the Lakers, the possibility of Derrick Rose’s return and the Celtics‘ fate without Rajon Rondo.
