If you missed the controversial Game 1 of the 2014 PBA Governor’s Cup Finals, here’s how the last possession went down: Down three points with less than three seconds left, Paul Lee took a cross-court inbound pass, faked, took one step back, took a page out of D-Wade’s fishing expedition book, sent Marc Pingris flying, and had a chance to send the game into overtime. But alas, no foul was called, pushing San Mig to just two wins away from a Grand Slam.
Yeng Guiao thought “Paul got fouled in the last play,” while Tim Cone wasn’t sure because he was “too far away” from the play. Was there a foul? Did Lee initiate contact? Did he travel? These are the questions that will haunt the rest of this series, no doubt. And to keep the debate going, was there a foul in Kobe’s tweet?
