Inspired a bit by this question...
- A player is fouled by a defender while in the act of shooting, and puts up a shot.
- Another defender sees the shot being taken, and has a path to block the shot on its upward trajectory.
- As he goes to block it, another offensive player steps late into the path of the defender, illegally impeding him.
What would the result be?
I'm assuming a player is legally allowed to block a shot after a whistle (when continuation is given... or also after the horn to end a quarter) since the shot is still live.
I'm also under the belief that typically an offensive player illegally impeding a defender's block would be a loose ball foul if the shot has already been released (an offensive foul before the ball is shot)?
Would the result be akin to a typical double foul?
