    I don't know if anyone has ever brought this up before but the famous Jerry West half court shot in the 1970 finals that tied the game technically shouldn't have counted cuz Wilt actually inbounded the ball before with one foot out and one foot in. Doesn't really matter cuz they lost the game anyways but still, the ref kinda did blow the call.

    Don't know why i'm bringin this up other than i hate the lakers lol

    I thought that you were going to report an erroneous report of Mr. West getting popped like Car Landry.

    I thought you were going to say the logo shot was a fraud.

    If they take away Peyton Manning's fraudulent yardage record, they need to take Jerry West's points off the books, too. It's never too late to rectify an injustice.

    that was pretty bad as far as inbound violations go. one foot still on the court, other foot not even all the way down out of bounds.
