Default Griffin should not be allowed to use his off arm so much

How is that legal and a "hook" on a spin move not legal.

You can't pull down a shot-blocker's arm when he's going up to defend the hoop.

I hope for once they call him for the offensive foul.

Kendrick Perkins' arm was planted firmly in Blake's chest. I'd hardly call that an offensive foul.

Also, u mad?

On his homecourt?


LOL! They wouldn't do that there. They make sure everything goes into the Clippers favor.

He does it almost every time he tries to dunk.

They need to take a look at Lebron's off hand when he dribbles first. It's impossible to stay balanced with him pushing off like that.

If Griffin is allowed to push off using his off arm a defender should be able to use his off arm to knock him on his ass.

Griffon does push off with his arm alot, on the flip side Lebron travels on half the plays he makes and is rarely called. These aren't little travels either theres times when you'd think he was playing football not basketball

You guys realize Perkins made no play on the ball right? Look where his hands were placed. He was fouling Griffin. So it's a no call. If you call it on Griffin, you gotta call it on Perkins.

They called Perkins for the foul anyway.

The Mozgov dunk, somehow Griffin is allowed to push off of a guy's head. Yet the slightest "hook" when someone spins on the baseline is an offensive foul, even though that's a pretty good basketball move.

If what Griffin does is legal you should be able to stiff arm your way to the basket with your off hand.

Fine. Blake's no longer allowed to use his off arm, but he IS still allowed to put nuts on chins when making dunks. Does that pacify your whining?

I don't know the OPs history, but it seems like a legit question. Sometimes a person likes a player's dunk so much that they're willing to fight something questionable to the death defending him.

On that particular dunk I thought it was a foul on Perkins, but the OP brings up a fair point.

If you watch it enough it happens in every game. People just get too caught up in the excitement.

Chop off his arm, I would say. It solves this problem.
