I'm not dwelling on the missed foul call.

What I AM dwelling on is this ridiculous notion from you that Durant took a bad shot. No-one else but you is going on and on about what a bad shot it was. If you watch the play, you'll see that Durant caught the inbound pass and spun away from Lebron to take the baseline. THE ONLY thing that Lebron could do was impede his progress with his arm, ending with the foul no-call. Ok, the foul was missed, let's move past that. But please stop the BULLSHOT nonsense that Durant took a bad shot.

Ok do you agree he could have taken a better shot? Meaning that when he caught the pass he could have brought the ball out to give himself some space and then maybe drive to the basket or set someone else up for a open three pointer. I just feel that base line didn't allow him a lot of room to operate so by bringing the ball out that would have gave him more options of what to do. Since he was on that baseline he didn't have that many options and took what was given to him. Can we agree on that?

So what you're saying is, instead of him trying to take advantage of Lebron being out of position defensively( which he was, and could only recover by effectively impeding Durant's drive with his arm) and make a quick move to the rim, you think with 12 seconds left that he should have taken the ball further out in order to give himself more space, but in essence would be giving the defence a chance to set up?

No.....we can't agree on that. I think you should take up critiquing movies, or food. I don't know..... Basketball isn't for you.
