What is a foul, and what is not a foul

Summary:
I recently did a post complaining about the modern NBA.  For those who haven’t watched any games since the 1990s, I thought you might be interested in knowing how games are refereed today.  This link shows a play from last night, which is not considered a foul. And this link shows another play, where a foul is called. Nothing more exciting that watching skilled actors pretending to be fouled on three point shots. Tags:
