Lakers News: NBA Says Foul Should Have Been Called on Dahntay Jones

After a morning full of “did he” or “didn’t he”, the NBA released a statement today saying that Dahntay Jones should’ve been called for a foul when he injured Kobe Bryant. Bryant and Jones went back and forth on Twitter, while sportswriters and Lakers fan everywhere argued about the call.

In a statement today, the NBA said this via Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times,

 

 

Bryant has maintainted that even though Jones didn’t make a dirty play, he compared it to what Jalen Rose did in the 2000 Finals.

Although the statement isn’t a consolation prize to Lakers fans, hopefully the NBA will do a better job “protecting shooters”, like Kobe said. Bryant is out indefinitely, but is working like crazy to get back on the court.

The Lakers are back in action tomorrow against the Pacers as they finish a quick three game road-trip.
