Official Bernie Fryer, already in the frying pan for waving off Davis' 3-pointer that should have won Saturday's game in regulation, called a horrible technical foul on the Pistons' Jon Barry on Monday night. Barry, who had fouled Jerome Williams, hustled over to Fryer and handed him the ball. Fryer took offense and whistled a technical, when Barry only did it to get off the court to tie his shoe that had fallen off.

"In a timeout before the last-second shot, we always say, `OK, what are we going to allow?' I am not going to allow catch, turn, pop and shoot. ... You can rely on the clock, but I am going to rely on my judgment on how long it takes him to get the shot off and he got (it) off really quick. But he did exactly what I said I was not going to allow."

-- NBA official Bernie Fryer on Baron Davis buzzer-beating 3-pointer that was ruled no good in the Charlotte Hornets 110-100 overtime victory over the Orlando Magic.

So did Fryer tell the teams what he was and wasn't going to allow? That's my biggest criticism here. For example, the rulebooks says you can't do a catch-and-shoot in less than .3 seconds. Maybe some players can--after all, people once though no one could run under a 5-minute mile much less a 4-minutes--but its there in the rulebooks and everybody knows it. So with less than .3, no one is even going to try a catch and shoot and if they do, they deserve what they get. But how was Davis supposed to know that he couldn't do what he did in less than .7 seconds. Especially since he did in fact do it in less than .7 seconds.
