I want to continue this Harris foul debate here because I think it's a bit overblown. A few posters continued to say in the LAC post-game thread that it was a dirty foul and that you can't bring down players by the neck. There are two major points that I would like to refute since I've watched the replay dozens of times.
1. Harris grabbed Griffin by the neck
From my view, Harris didn't grab the neck. He grabbed the shoulder. His hand NEVER crossed into the neck/throat. It was always on his shoulder. It wasn't the outside of his shoulder, but it was his shoulder nonetheless. Griffin's chin never elevated as it would if someone's hand had his neck. You can also see that Harris' hand is gripping downward. His hand would have had to been wrapping sideways or at least somewhat sideways around the neck, which it didn't. The hand that supposedly grabbed the neck made contact by coming downward. If your hand is coming downward, you're going to make contact with the shoulder, not the neck.
To try and simulate it, I had my roommate grab me on the same spot as I ran by to see where I felt strain. I felt it on my shoulder and somewhat on the collarbone, but never on the neck.
1. Harris caught Griffin mid-air and pulled him backward
While Harris no doubt pulled backward, he never did so while Griffin was mid-air. Griffin wasn't off his feet when Harris initiated contact. Griffin was clearly upright and squarely on his feet when Harris grabbed him. Thinking he was a Greek god, Griffin tried to jump through Harris' arms, and met his fate on the floor.
Was it a hard foul? Yes. Was it a harder foul than T-Will's on Lebron? By far (and I still don't think that was a hard foul. Lebron tried to bully his way past T-Will, and T-Will stood his ground in Lebron's path and bodies collided. T-Will never pushed, he slapped for the ball.)
Here is the YouTube video, and I give you all the floor.
