Ray Allen's Shot Clock Violation?

Watch the ball.. It clearly hits the rim and changes the balls rotation. The ball does not hit the backboard twice. I'm just showing this before the Lakers fans try to use this excuse as to why they lost the game. The Celtics got the rebound after the ball hit the rim, and the appropriate call was made.

 

What pissed me off the most was ABC showing a distant side angle, after (before the break) showing two great angles of how the ball clearly changed rotation. They stuck with the phrase "With that angle it doesn't look at all like the ball hit the rim." SWING THE CAMERA ANGLE AROUND and stop trying to favor the Lakers for once..

 

Nevermind the officials, we got a bunch of morons broadcasting these games..

 

NOT EVEN THE MOST BIASED LAKERS FAN CAN FOOL THEMSELVES INTO LOOKING AT THIS AND SERIOUSLY THINKING THIS DOESNT HIT THE RIM...

I'm not a Laker fan by any means but the overhead shot shows the ball changing rotation after it hit the backboard. No one is favoring the Lakers...

Boney.. The ball can not hit the backboard twice.. It very clearly changes rotation twice.. To change rotation twice it must hit 2 things... Watch the 2nd view, it goes from barely spinning, to spinning sideways, to spinning quickly out of control.. This is the shot rotation, to the rim rotation, to the backboard rotation..

thanks for posting this video - this was highly debated at the water cooler today until this link settled the dispute and left Laker fans with sad faces and nothing to gripe about.
I knew this was going to be an issue when they only showed the front-view (which clearly showed the rim being hit) once - and never played it again. With how crappy the officials have been in this series, it's nice to see they got one right for a change.

I was beside myself when they came back from break and showed a side angle of this shot attempt. After showing 1 view where it clearly hits the rim, they came back to a side angle that was inconclusive due to the poor camera angle. I know some Lakers fans just listen to commentary and take that as the ultimate truth so I felt this had to be posted to show what really happened.
