    I think it's ridiculous he wasn't ejected - there is no doubt this was an attempted to hurt Harden.

    Steps forward with the right foot to close distance as Harden steps backs and gathers for the shot. Notice you can't see the numbers on BG's back

    Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 9.40.44 PM.png
    Instead of taking a step towards Harden with his left leg or even swinging forward, he cuts it short and begins his jump even before Harden has begun his. Why not take another step and why not face up?

    Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 9.42.27 PM.png
    He jumps. Notice that he doesn't jump very high - a guy who won the dunk contest and look how much horizontal distance he covers - further notice that you can read the numbers a lot easier than in the first image. Who closes out by jumping and turning side ways. Also notice he is barely off the ground - because he is trying to cover horizontal distance.

    Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 9.42.39 PM.png
    Feet together about to landing - looks fairly normal except he is nowhere near contesting the shot - in fact it looks pretty half-hearted. And why is he landing as Harden is still going up!

    Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 9.42.53 PM.png
    You can see his left foot has landed with his right foot about to land inside the 3 point line - you can see the shadow from his show on the floor. Notice his left leg has swung out whereas before he was landing with his feet nearly together.

    Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 9.43.19 PM.png

    Notice the following:
    1. He has turned his body and his left heel is pushed to the right to enable that turn
    2. His left leg isn't quiet straight and his left foot is on its right edge - he is pushing off his left leg so he can move to his right.
    3. His left leg is now extended out further than his right - this happens when you slide to the right, not when you land off of a jump
    3. His right foot which was about to touch inside the 3 point line has now landed outside of it.


    That last image is undeniable of his intention, Nothing looks natural there - and you can see his full back where in the fist image you could hardly see the "3"

    I hope the league looks at this and suspends this clown for the rest of the season. Intentionally trying to hurt someone should result in an indefinite suspension, not just a flagrant 1.

    Griffin knew exactly what he was doing.

    He's a bitch. He chokes in big moments, and always pulls this passive aggressive s**t.

    This was definitely of the "extremely uncool" variety. It was a very unnatural move and, as you said, it happened at the last second - he really accelerated his right leg over there to make sure.

    Very much intentional. ****ing pussy. It pissed me off so much. He had plenty of room to not land beneath hardens feet.

    Always funny reminiscing about Blake's missing EVERY shot down the stretch Game 6.

    His dunk that won the Contest sucked too.

    Harden should've got up and whooped his ass. Gerald Green can't fight every man's problem.
