When Shaq flattened Kenny A in the playoffs (after blocking his shot)


A long long time ago, in a Blazer playoff games decisive moment, the lovable three hundred pound monster,

also known as Shrek, emboldened by the angelic halo of induction into referee heaven, races full speed

toward the open shooter, and deftly blocks the shot, and not so deftly, follows through,

out of control, and flattens the little guy, (poor old Kenny Andersen) like a rookie receiver who dared run

a crossing pattern across the middle.

After seeing the same type of play terminate Game 6 of this years finals, does the NBA rulebook

grant (life-saving) discretionary powers to referees, for protecting the home team? Does the rulebook say

you can deck the shooter after you block the shot? Or does the HEAT of the moment, allow for

referrees to instantly modify the rules, and then glibly sprint away from the visiting coach?
