The real question is how do the referees miss this? The NBA has a review board that looks at flagrant fouls and other controversial plays. I remember one instance where the review board looked at a play where Kobe flailed his arms on a missed shot trying to draw a foul and he gave manu ginobli a concussion. Kobe got an offensive foul, but the board reviewed the play after the game and suspended him for one game.
