From the current NBA Rules & Regs:
Section IV—Flagrant Foul
a. If contact committed against a player, with or without the ball, is interpreted to be
unnecessary, a flagrant foul—penalty (1) will be assessed. A personal foul is charged to the offender and a team foul is charged to the team.

(Official Rules for NBA -- 2012-2013 season)
So then any intentional foul should be considered Flagrant, maybe they need to call flagrant when a team is practicing hack-a-shaq? Manu grabbed his arm to prevent him making the shot, it was necessary so he wouldn't get a three point play. You're not going to convince me that was a flagrant foul, so lets agree to disagree.

The dizzy part was just an extra 2 cents, that was pure BS on Allen's part, I understand it had nothing to do with the call, I was just saying it was ridiculous.
