Hi Miami fan

I don't cheer for or have any bias toward either of these teams so rest assured I'm not trying to "hate" or anything like that

“To get into a legal position, the defender needs to establish himself in the path of the offensive player before contact is made, thus “beating him to the spot,” and before he starts his upward shooting motion.” - Source

Your screencap is well after Edwards begins his upward shooting motion as he is almost off the ground already.

Edward's upward shooting motion begins here, before Vincent is even back on the ground, let alone in an established position:

Not only that, but the 1st screenshot does not show the Heat defenders final position. It shows Edwards about to take off and it shows the defender with his feet wide apart. If you continue, the defender ends up with both feet closer together when contact with Edwards is made, so he was clearly not in position and still moving.

Overall, i'm surprised that an overwhelming major see this the right way, as a bad call compounded by the fact that this could have been an icon highlight and the benefit of a 50/50 play (if you want to call it that) should go to Edwards.


But there are still one of two people in here that can post a picture of the foul and somehow say they are seeing something else. :crazy:

Blocking, +1. It all moved too quickly for the referees, it seemed.

Should have counted. If anything that's a defensive foul.

That was a clear blocking foul. Even as a fan I have no problem calling a bs call.

Also low key the Lowry and Duncan contracts thus far have been horrible deals.

Wait, you mean the Lakers savior, Kyle Lowry, is NOT a good contract this season?

The posts in this thread... LOL.

- Enjoy NBA basketball. It was a fun dunk.
- It's ok if a big dunk happens vs. your fav team.
- Or a bad call happens vs. your fav team... especially when it didn't change the outcome.

Either way, people will remember the dunk as a really really good disrespecting dunk. Maybe it won't land on official NBA highlight reels because of the charge call... but it will live on in social media.

Again... just enjoy the fun things about basketball.

That can't be the dunk of the century when his dunk last year was definitely a better dunk.

Clear blocking foul. Wtf are Vincent’s hands doing? Clearly not making a play on the correct ball.

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

Well his dunk on Yuta shouldn’t have counted last year so I guess this evens it out.

But damn that was nasty

i noticed the nba seems to be calling a ton of charges, probably to offset the new rule. its highly annoying, if a defender falls its probably a charge.

It's ridiculous and disgusting where Edwards took off from. That's absurd to have that type of leaping ability. Reminds me of a missed dunk against the Lakers WB tried.

Dunk of the century?

The VC dunk on Zo was way nastier!

To be fair to the referee, the defender gets set a fraction too late and Edwards is in the air so long that it looks like a charge. Edwards doesn't help himself pushing off the face, either.

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