Worst f'n call of the NBA season.

What the hell are we talking about?
That's what he is copying the Piston's announcers on - "call the police; there's been a robbery."Originally posted by <b>PetroToZoran</b>!
Billups pushing off of Kevin Garnett in the air with .8 seconds left in the game. He made the shot but was called for an offensive foul. If there was no foul, Pistons win 81-80. Instead, they lose 79-80.
Not a big basketball fan? I suggest watching a few games, it's an interesting sport.Originally posted by <b>fear the fro</b>!
Still can't believe that call was made. Without a doubt the worst call I have ever seen made in any basketball game I have ever watched. Reall makes you wonder what the ref was thinking.
I didn't see any foul before that. I thought it would be called a foul on Kg, because tehre was body contact, but there had to be something on the other side of the court that we didn't see, because the ref obviously saw something, and as I said before, Hoiberg was calling that exact same thing without knowing what the call was, so it has to make you think that there was something over there. And about it not being able to happen with 1.5 secs left, it could've very well happened, that's exactly what i thought when i heard the whistle. I was like "shoot (not exactly shoot, but you get the point), there's still time though." I would like to see another view before I say that it was a horrible call.Originally posted by <b>Mike luvs KG</b>!
Even if he DID throw an off arm into KG, Sam Cassell fouled him TWICE before that, once on the drive and once on the way up, and then if anything Chauncey threw his arm up to regain ballance from the push Cassell gave him.
Even if the off arm did go up it was still a HORRIBLY weak call, it's not like he cleared him off because Garnett still boddy checked him before the shot went off.
It was just flat out an attrocious call, and it cost Detroit the game. There would have been 1.5 seconds left for Minny to score, it wasn't going to happen.
Kevin Garnett said he saw the push-off when Sam Cassell tumbled out of the play. Cassell said he saw Chauncey Billups push off Garnett so blatantly the refs had no choice but to blow the whistle. Billups said he saw Garnett and Cassell in the air before he shot, making it impossible to have pushed off anyone at all.
