One of the cardinal rules of crunch time basketball — or any basketball, really — is that you never foul a three-point shooter. Everybody knows that. It’s a big-time no-no. But what a lot of people don’t know is that if you do happen to foul a guy 25 feet from the basket, you should apologize to your fans and assure them that you weren’t involved in any sort of gambling conspiracy. It’s the classy thing to do.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, Shaun Livingston is a classy guy. And definitely not a criminal. Just a nice dude who made a silly foul in the last few seconds of a big Bobcats win. Call off the manhunt, Melvin Purvis.
