When is a no-call a bad call?
When the Lakers' Derek Fisher clearly bumped the Spurs' Brent Barry on Barry's last-second shot last night, official Joey Crawford didn't call a foul.
Conspiracy? Not so, writes the Post's Michael Lee: Why wasn't the foul called? Because Barry didn't sell it well enough. Officials don't make calls in the final seconds unless their hand is forced.
Wizards Insider readers aren't buying it:
Confused: Okay so one minute we get on NBA players (Ginobili) for constant flopping, then in turn say that Barry didn't "sell" the foul well enough? Yes, the NBA is slowly becoming the WWE. Scripted.
Bart: So it was a foul but the player didn't sell it hard enough? Oh please! So now the rule is players have to SELL fouls? Give me a break! If the fix is not in, the NBA really goes well out of its way to make it look like it. Of all the available refs, why Joey Crawford?
Joey Crawford: You wanna fight me?
