Default Sam Cassell 8 second violation in 2006 playoffs

This is a little random. Anybody remember this? Sam Cassell getting called for a violation while lazily taking the ball upcourt and taunting Raja Bell in the 2006 playoffs. It was tied 101 apiece with 30 seconds left.

Notice how quickly his expression changes.
That was great.

I remember it. That 8-second call during those playoffs is the only moment that comes to mind when thinking of the 8-second rule and the rule having actual game-time importance. It's the "Do you remember when old Sammy took his sweet time bringing it up the court" moment. I love Sam Cassell.

But you have to forgive Sam Cassell. He isn't used to human time.

I refuse to believe that the Kobe pic is not photoshopped.
It makes me feel better.

. Take away that violation and the Clippers had all the momentum and would have won the series right there. Instead Raja Bell hits a huge 3, Clippers lose a heartbreaker.. then get blown out in Phoenix by like 30 next game to lose the series.

I remember this. I also remember that it was a bad call. It wasn't even 8 seconds. The game clock was a testament to that.

16 seconds on the shot clock. Unless something weird happened that's 8.

Since the clock doesn't show tenths of a second, a ref really can't be sure about 8 seconds until the clock shows 15.

24.0 down to 16.0 is 8 seconds, but the clock shows 16 when there's 16.9 seconds left.

Edit: Just watched the video and the shotclock still says 16. I bet if you find the full sequence and time it out with a stopwatch it won't be 8 seconds.

For someone who was such a smart player, he did this so much.

If you find the full sequence, then you could just look to the game clock to see the tenths of a second.
