Pero Antic Picks Up The Flagrant One Foul On A Sky-Scraping LeBron James

UPDATE: The league has weighed in on the reasoning behind officials calling Antic for a flagrant-1 foul.

PREVIOUSLYPero Antic put a quick halt to what was sure to be a huge poster jam by LeBron James and picked up the flagrant-1 foul for his efforts. It was a questionable call to begin with, one that the refs had to review and confer about, but by definition, it certainly appeared that Antic didn’t make a legitimate attempt on the ball. Although, it’s also up for debate whether that was even possible given how insanely high in the air Lebron was.

LeBron has 13 points, and the Cavs lead the Hawks 35-27 early in the second quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
