Again from NBA.com

Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1, offensive player leads with elbow to opponent's face Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1, offensive player leads with elbow to opponent's face. “This is an example of a Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1.

It is the literal rule
He didn't hit him with the elbow. That is an example, not the rule leading with the elbow is considered unnecessary always. Jimmy did not lead with or hit him with the elbow he made contact with the head with his upper arm, it was part of a regular shooting motion, as such was considered not unnecessary.

What the fuck is Martin arguing? That he got only two of Tatum's arms instead of that plus his legs?

SVG having to explain what today's rules actually are to Reggie is pretty sad. He literally had no idea what the rule actually was.
Lispy was way too focused on the fact that Bam was just “steadying himself” as if that fucking matters

It’s so stupid to have this tight of a whistle in Game 6 of a conference finals game. If I wasn’t a fan of one of the teams playing I’d have turned this off long ago.

I like how aggressive Tatum and Brown have been.. feel like they should run at Miami as much as possible.. feel like White should be getting primary PG duty at this point

Miami on the ropes here. Great calmness by JB at the line. Amazing interior defense. Bonus all the way for Boston, who have only 1 team foul. Grind this one out all the way to Boston.

Agreed---it's brutal basketball with a call at least half the trips. And a lot of them are marginal to make it even worse.

Watch the replay again.
I did, he goes into his body, rises up and clips him with the bicep, that;s a foul, what he didn't do is swing his elbow out, which is what the example tape shown above is pointing out.
People also need to realize... the commentary on coaching tape isn't the rule, it's an example of the type of play considered to be unnecessary, with an emphasis on the player safety of trying to minimize swinging arms into the face/head.

I actually enjoy Stan, and I'm pretty soft on annoncers in general... But Reggie should be fired.
Him destroying the Knicks in 7 seconds remains one of my favorite sporting achievements of all time. But good lord, he sucks.
