Kevin Harlan & Mike Fratello completely miss failed dunk

Even the best announcers can contribute to the blooper reel every now and then. Last night on TNT, Kevin Harlan called this play a dunk by Shawne Williams.  To the naked eye, in real speed, it might look like a successful jam.  Williams gets up at the rim, the net swooshes, and play quickly moves the other way.

But a closer look reveals that Williams indeed missed the dunk as he was blocked by a Thunder defender.  Even after Mike Fratello saw an above the rim replay that more clearly showed the miss, he still lauded Williams' finish!

The 2013-2014 Los Angeles Lakers, one illusion after another.
