Those ideas included a massive, game-changing block. Or a foul (that obviously wasn’t called). It’s a matter of opinion, I suppose:
Speaking of opinions, here are Richardson’s thoughts on the play:
(On LeBron James blocking him) “Clearly a foul. I don’t care how you look at it – clearly a foul – and that’s bad. A guy is going up like that, especially to do something to get the fans going, and to get fouled and get hammered like that and with no call at all – that’s terrible.”
(On whether he thought he had enough clearance on the breakaway) “I definitely did. I didn’t know anybody was coming – if you know someone is coming like that, you’re not going to pull something off like that. It was just a bad call. I don’t care how you look at it, it was just a bad call.”
Video replays seem to support J-Rich’s claims. Nice job as always, refs.
