Via the AP: NBA: Foul should have been called at end of Game 4

The NBA acknowledged Wednesday that a foul should have been called on the final possession of Game 4 in the Western Conference finals, which would have given the San Antonio Spurs a chance to even the series.

Ah well. The thing that has annoyed me about the non-call has more been the coverage than the non-call itself. A lot of commentators (including those covering the game, as well as Mike Wilbon) have stated that Barry have better “sold” the foul. However, these are the same guys who seem to always be griping that there is too much flopping in basketball to get calls. So which is it: should guys play up and “sell” the fouls or what? You can’t have it both ways.

At least my brother was happy with the outcome…
