Kobe Bryant\'s flagrant foul
 
This foul was nasty. He elbowed Mike Miller in the neck as Miller drove the lane. It's being shown on ESPNews. I hate the NBA and I really hate Kobe Bryant. From ESPN.com:

Bryant, gashed over his left eye in the second quarter when Miller pushed him in the face with his hand while driving, had three stitches to close the cut.

Bryant was called for a flagrant foul with 8:24 to play for elbowing Miller in the face as Miller drove again.

"Any player that was going to come down the lane at that point in time, I was going to let him know that he just can't walk through there," Bryant said. "I think we as a team have to do a better job of establishing that. And me, as a leader of the ballclub, I've got to take the initiative to do that -- and hopefully, everybody will see that.

"This being our home court, people come here and think it's Hollywood and all sorts of stuff, so they think they'll come down (the lane) and look pretty and shoot jump shots and dunk the ball and finger-roll the ball and do all sorts of cute stuff. And we've got to stop that."

you may hate kobe but what is wrong with him doing what teams have been doing to him lately?? i actually gained a little respect for him when i watched this tonight, looks like he grew some nuts and isn't hiding behind shaq's huge pair anymore.

hell the bad boys of detroit back in the day won championships doing this and if you ask me this hard nose play is what was lost and needs to come back...i know one thing, that guy will be little more hesitant when coming in the lane next time.

the first 6 inches wasn't rape, it was the last 5 that was.

to me john stockton continually sticking his knee out in the lanes to charlie-horse opponents is pussy. its sneaky therefore pussy.

kobe stepped up and delivered a message tonight and then didn't hide after the fact, he may still be a piece of [censored] but at least he is acting like a basketball player instead of just a scorer now.

i absolutely detest kobe but what he did was fine. he got punched earlier cutting open his eye (which seems to be happening over and over) and his teammates are playing soft letting opponents in the box freely and take jump shots uncontested every night, so what did he do...he said [censored] it, not anymore. i can dig that even though i hate him.

i hate kobe. but mike miller is annoying so i gained a little respect for kobe.

he's a pussy for diming out shaq, and a dbag for cheating on his wife, but if you read the transcripts, he is certainly not a rapist.

back in high school our coach used to basically teach us to hack the crap out of any layup like that one. ensure they miss the shot, and make them think twice. not a philosophy i agree with (see john cheney), but it's pretty widespread

You're dumber than I already think you are if you really think he raped the girl in Colorado.
