I'm sure jefferson fouled him. It doesn't matter now but JO flew all the way back. I thought they had called it for a second there cause it was blatant.

No.

Jefferson wasn't even close to fouling him. He blocked the shot after it even left JOs hands. I still don't understand how a 6'11" guy, with a nice vert. leap, doesn't go up and dunk when he's under the basket especially in that situation. He put up a ***** shot, and it got spanked.

AJ had the best chance of getting a call, but he wasn't going to get it after Game 1.

had JO gone up with 2 hands and flushed it this wouldn't even be an issue...

It's a non-issue as is.

That was a clean play.

There's a picture of it in todays Star. Sadly, it was all ball.

If he would went up with authority he would of had a dunk.

Sadly Kidd also stole one of his rebounds because he doesn't use
2 hands.

Krstic may have foulded him. RJ was clean.

He just went up too soft.

Not sure how/ why he didn't dunk it.

Probably because he's not really 100% healthy from the groin injury. He's not been 'explosive' since he returned.

I'm not sure how explosive you need to be when you're 6'11", and when you're arms are raised it puts the ball over 9ft, more like in the 9'7"-9'9" range.

A little pump-fake would of done wonders.

I'll offer two words to this thread - words which fill all Knick fans with horror.

Charles Smith.

Nah, RJ would've stripped him. Big men know not to bring the ball down to let the little guys swipe at it. Well, all big men but Rik Smits, he always brought the ball down and Jordan was always ready to strip it from him.

Even if you're 7 feet, your reach up would not reach 9 feet.
If it did your wingspan would be close to or over 8 feet and I've never seen something (forget someone) like that outside a zoo.

I don't think JO's been a leaper for at least a year or two.

I disagree. I'm 6'2 and my standing reach is 8 feet. I'm sure someone with longer arms and is 7 foot tall could get 9 easily.

I hate it when bigs go up soft right under the basket.
