That's the message that the NBA delivered to the Timberwolves this afternoon, less than 24 hours after Kobe Bryant committed a foul against Ricky Rubio that wasn't called by the referees at the end of a Lakers/T'Wolves game.

"Video review by the league office confirmed that Kobe Bryant fouled Rubio while Rubio was in his shooting motion," the league said. "Rubio should have been awarded three free throws."
