To me, it looks like Lawrence Frank was shouting instructions to his players for most of the play, but just as Ronnie Brewer shot, Frank turned toward him and shouted. It looks even more convincing in higher-quality replays, which if someone posts, I’d happily update my mediocre capture.
If Frank yelled to distract Brewer, I don’t have a huge problem with it. I have a much bigger problem with Frank stepping onto the court before the shout – especially because he comes mighty close to the Bulls’ play. Many coaches do that, but I wish the refs did a better job policing it.
