    Should blocks after a foul count in the stat sheet?

    Should blocks be counted if they occur after a foul? I understand why they might not be counted, but I feel that it should be counted in the scheme of what a block is. A few reasons why I think it should be:

    1) It encourages players to play through the whistle until the ball is dead. On offense this always happens, players consistently throw up faux prayers in hopes of a call in their favor. Defense should have some incentive as well.

    2) The point of a block is to stop points from going into the basket. Blocks can result in either team getting possession, so it isn't a possession thing, but all about the points. Given that players have the opportunity to put points up and get credit for it after a whistle, blocks should be given the same credit.

    3) Blocking the ball requires great awareness, timing, and positioning. Not only that, but they are exciting as well. I am all for rewarding those skills being showcased as often as possible. It's just more exciting basketball.

    given that a goaltend can be called after the whistle, i dont see why not.

    Yes because of the continuation rule, if a player can make a basket after a foul is called a player should be able to block said attemtped shot, as long as its not goaltended it should count as a block

    Yes, if a basket can be counted then a block should be counted.

Melo will become the new Jordan of the league we are so lucky to have him!!!

    It wouldn't make sense to count a block after a foul. There wouldn't be a block if there wasn't a foul.

    Thats not true. By that logic no foul would go unblocked. If a player gets the ball up and it goes in does it count? So why not if he gets it up and its blocked?

    Because it just doesn't make sense. Why award a player a block for a foul committed by your team?

    I see what youre saying. I understand that it shouldnt be rewarded, but usually the shot is blocked by a player that wasnt defending the shooter. So why punish his block for a foul committed by someone else? If it stops someone from putting points on the board it should be a legitimate block.

    either way i dont care, i can see both sides of the argument.

    I would laugh like hell if a guy committed a flagrant foul and his teammate was awarded with a block because of the assistance.

    Could you imagine if Kobe came in for the block on this play and the announcers go wild... OMG what a block by Kobe... LOL

    and Bosh to the Heat to join Wade. That would've been awesome... I would've respected LeBron way more if he went there.
    Why have great rivals when you can join them and have none.... Lebron James where losing the spirit of competition happens!

    Its not that the block would be celebrated, just that it would count on the stat sheet.

    I agree with you. While it's true that some blocks after fouls would have been blocked even if there was no foul committed, there are definitely a lot of times when a player was only able to block a shot because there was a foul.

    If a player is getting fouled, they should be rewarded if they make the shot since there was contact and thus making the shot tougher.

    I understand both ways though.

    another good question is. if a player gets fouled while shooting should the player who assisted get the assist if the player makes both free throw.

    No because there is no official FG/A being made most of the time, unless theres an and1.

    Really? A good question? wow

    Anyway, to answer the question. Yes, it should be counted.. might as well ask, if the player you fouled makes the basket, will you count it in the stat sheet? If you give the offense an opportunity to score after a whistle, it is just fair to award a guy who made a defensive play after the whistle.
