BS call by the ref, seriously.

IMO, charges like this suck and should be removed, Can cause injury so easily.

Charge calls are out of control in the NBA and they need to do something to disincentivize jumping in front of your opponent and flopping to the ground as a substitute for trying to play defense

not agreeing with the call, but not out of the realm of possibility


Yup, honestly I think Edwards should just be happy it wasn't called a flagrant foul on him. You can't put your hand in the defender's face no matter what the play is.


Flagrant? You can not be serious.


"A Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1 is defined as contact that is unnecessary. "

The league protects players health first and foremost, and it's hard to argue shoving your hand in someone's face is a necessary basketball move.

They gave him a break which is nice, but it very easily could be called one and is a flagrant by the rules as well as consistent with how the refs have been calling it for years.

Don't let facts stand in the way of "oh wow he jumped high so you're wrong" stances.

It's the rules, not a troll.

Again it's hard to argue the side of putting your hand in the defenders face is a necessary basketball move. And they do whatever they can to avoid that precedent being set for obvious safety of the players reasons. Hell see the LeBron DET player issue just the other day for why.

Definitely not a foul on Edwards, I’m beyond sick of seeing guys slide that late, that shouldn’t be rewarded

Also that’s not the dunk of the century

It's only his 2nd year and he already has some of the nastiest mix of in game dunks of any NBA player

He has all the intangibles the toughness, trash talking, confidence that Kat lacks. Its a nice pairing with their skills and personalities.

True. I think the league will review this and might suspend Edwards for at least one game for that unnecessary contact I mean he could have just shot a floater he didn’t have to end a man’s life

It's a great dunk but let's be real, someone ineffectually standing there under the dunk always makes it look better than it really is, it's no dunk of the century.

yeah i've always thought it was against the spirit of the game. if you got beaten on defense, accept the loss. don't jump into/under a dude hoping for a call.

Not close to the sink of the century. Vince Carter has a number of dunks that were clearly better. But still a fantastic play, or non-play? I guess...

He was about to pull a vince carter/fredrick weiss on him if vincent didnt put his arms up. Shouldve counted.

Anyone saying Edwards wont be a superstar simply isnt watching him.

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:

It was clearly a charge.
Move on, dunk doesn’t count.

Great defense I say
