Default "hear the whistle and throw it up"?

I hate when commentators say, "he heard the whistle and threw it up" meaning he attempted a shot after the whistle blew. I'M SORRY but that clearly means he wasn't in the act of shooting during the fool.

I really hope the NBA reviews these plays and tries to change the rules. It is annoying as heck watching these guys get continuations.

I think for the most of the time it means the player was already on the way to the hoop with the intention to shoot.

The NBA will not review a continuation, its the refs call.

I think you can be in motion, but not having actually shot the ball yet, before the whistle and it still counts as a continuation.

Anyone know the exact rule?

It was actually a lot worse last year and before that and they changed the rule I believe and now they don't give players ridiculous amounts of continuation.

At least that's what their plan was...and it was working for the first month or so of the season. But i've seen some ridiculous continuation called recently and they are kinda going back to their old ways.
