Pacers’ Assistant Brian Shaw Proves That The Ball Actually Doesn’t Lie After Ray Allen Misses A Free Throw (VIDEO)
While Ray Allen was at the line due to an ill-advised technical foul from Pacers’ guard Sam Young, who thought the refs were protecting LeBron with ticky-tacky calls, bench coach and former 90′s NBA player Brian Shaw made a rather insightful observation. I’m paraphrasing, but here’s the gist of what he said:
Due to a percieved empirical existence of the Platonic concept of “fairness”, (in the Western, normative sense), the Universe interdicts karmically incongruous resulting contingencies by imbuing a sense of justice in leather sports orbs, who thereafter alter their flight pattern, correcting the malfeasance of fallible officiating.
Actual quote: “Ball don’t lie.” Then he got a tech himself, whereby Ray Allen hit the ensuing free throw. Was the ball lying then? It would appear so. Therefore, if the ball doesn’t lie, and it goes in after a technical accrued from espousing such, logic dictates that the sense of justice that rules the universe is reflexive, and ultimately contradictory. Sports!
