On one hand we have Nate Robinson dunking the ball and "hanging on the rim", and in the other we have Boozer dunking the ball and hanging / trying to rip the rim off the back board. From my perspective, either both are technical fouls, or neither are technical fouls. After watchign Nate's get called for a T just nights before, I saw it as a no brainer that Boozer would get called for hanging on the rim. It was only 1 point at the 6:40 mark in the fourth that would have only cut the lead to 13, but it is a call that should be made nonetheless. If we are seeking consistency from the players in their actions, then we should seek consistency from the officials as well.

The only difference is that Boozer hangs for 3 seconds and Nate only hangs up there for 2. I guess that extra second makes the difference in the call. Nate should have waited one more second before letting go.
