A turnover by Jeremy Evans… that’s what happened on this play, according to the box score.  What I want you to do before you watch this video is envision a turnover.  What exactly does a typical turnover look like to you?  Okay, now watch the video.

 

Did anyone envision that?  Didn’t think so.  This is why the official in the lower right hand corner needs to be fired.  How are you going to turn one of the most electrifying plays of the preseason into a goddamn turnover?  A turnover is what happens when Ron Artest tries to play offense, not what happens when Jeremy Evans decides to rest his nutsack on Gerald Wallace’s forehead.  Everyone knows there’s an unwritten rule in basketball, and it goes like this: there’s no such thing as an offensive foul when someone gets dunked on.  Example: remember when Blake Griffin used Timofey Mozgov’s face as a launch pad?  Blatant offensive foul.  The call?  Blocking foul on Mozgov.  That’s good officiating.
