I missed this part cuz' my girl came home around the end of the 1st qtr.

any way only snatch I remember like that was K-Mart when he was a Net on D-Wade. Wallace will never get a better block than this again.

Not impressed. Might have been a foul but he had a lot of help on that one either way.

I personally don't see how it would be a foul. He didn't push off Butler's body, he didn't hit his wrist or any other body part before grabbing the ball, and his body also went straight up.

I will say however that he did travel once he came down with the ball.

I thought I was the only one who saw the travel too. :laugh2:

Watch, the next time Kenyon Martin has a great weakside help block when Tyson Chandler is going up with the offensive player, you're gonna rave about how impressive it was.

Nah I saw it live too. He took like 4 baby steps. The refs MIGHT have been thinking "Butler's positioning wouldn't allow Wallace to avoid traveling", but I don't think that's an excuse. They pprobably either missed it or didn't want to ruin the atmosphere.

I don't even consider that a block. That's like a jumping steal.

did they score it a block or a steal? either way that looks like child abuse on an NBA playoff court.

Not to mention, everyone is missing the fact that the guy traveled with the ball after he blocked/stole it and there was no call.

I never talk about individual plays my team makes. I just wasn't impressed, don't try and make it into something it's not

Glad I wasn't the only one who saw it. Refs ****ed that one up.

That play was all Brook Lopez, and it wasn't an amazing play.

LOL. This guy just loves the Nets. Dude was falling on his *** mid air before Wallace even grabbed it, the shot had no prayer of going in because of Lopez's contest in the first place, it was already pretty loose and going nowhere, thats not impressive at all.

:laugh:

Yet he claims he's a Knicks fan but never made a positive thread about the Knicks, when it comes to the nets, dude starts a thread about a foul? :laugh: you can't make this up

absolutely not the boty. He blocked it after the shooter was already stopped at the rim by Lopez.

Meh block, and honestly could have been called a foul.

Nowhere close to a foul. He grabbed the ball. The contact after was the result of the block/steal.

are you rooting for the Knicks or Celtics in this series? because I remember you had a sig dedicated to them winning the "fight" against the Nets in nov. So just wondering.

Yea man I don't even really give a **** about the Nets any more, they were a laughing stock for a good chunk of the season, I actually bet on them to win this series so I'm rooting for them. I see Chicago getting exposed for lack of talent just like they did last year against Philly, after an impressive regular season campaign without Rose. Gameplanning against a team in the reg season with games against different teams every other night is a different animal than gameplanning against a team for 7 straight games.
