The extended knee connected with Hibbert first. How is that not an offensive foul?
If Hibbert hit Lebron first then i can see your point. But Lebron kneed him first. It's just natural reaction that Hibbert hands would go a little bit forward to protect himself. Imagine when you're in midair with your hand up to block a shot. If the other guy knee is connected with your torso. Your first natural reaction is to suck in your stomach and your hand go forward to protect yourself from further damage.
um...no...how can you jump moving forward without somewhat extending/bending knees....? this aint double dribble...some old nba live game...He was moving forward so of course his knees are going to bend. In battier case it wasnt that his knees were bent in the natural sense, he lunged his knee in an attempt to avoid contact, with no intentions of shooting the ball.
