Colin thought the reaction from NBA fans and media over Zaza Pachulia falling on Russell Westbrook’s legs was overblown, and representative of how soft the NBA has become. He argued that a reverse angle of Nick Young’s leg pulling Zaza down provided plausible deniability as to the intent.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver apparently agreed with Colin, because the league announced that it would not fine or suspend Pachulia for the fall. Great minds think a like.
Watch Colin explain why the league’s decision to let Zaza off without punishment was the only call to make.
