Man that's a turrible call. They never call the forearm to the head of opponents, so this call must have been for the defender getting there in time, which he clearly did not by the time Edwards had made his move.

What a shame.

You cannot slide under an offensive player once they leave the ground.

If you pause the video and scrub it you can see the defender did not slide under Edwards before he left the ground. His left foot was planted and he actually moves his right foot backwards, and he was not under or moving under Edwards when he left the ground.

That said, it was a great dunk and should not have been a charge.

Pau Gasol punching air right now after how Blake murdered him back in the day. You let these plays go on IMO

Wrong call and ruined a great play, but I get it


looks more like edwards is just protecting his kids. defender's head shouldn't have been there in the first place.
screw these absolute garbage refs
