Another sucker move against the Mamba?
Could Denver be breeding a Bruce Bowen 2.0?

i know what he’s trying to do, but dahntay just comes off douchey to me.
Waa waaa, poor baby Kobe, just a bit of what you dish out. Also that was a nasty travel on the second play.
i wonder if our beloved bruce ever did on of those so-called “windmill slams”?
he is going to fly kick wally next just like Bowen did
happens all over the league, just picked up on cos its kobe.
No, that’s just good defense.
More on this from Byron Scott:
“I can appreciate anybody that plays hard, but when you get to the point where you’re being a little dirty, that’s the thing that kind of aggravates me,” Scott said Tuesday.
“Being that I played in this league, I know how tough that is. But when you get to the point where you’re being a little dirty then I don’t appreciate that – and I don’t respect it.”
Funny when ppl cant see what’s in front of their eyes. Especially when they have the benefit of instant replay. Terrible…
gotta do what u gotta doo somitime i man jus scores to easy gota stop him one way or another
I’d be pissed too. Let him have it Mamba.
I’ve never been a big Dahntay Jones fan, and yall know how I feel about Kobe, but I don’t like this kind of stuff.
The trip was fairly blatant on replay but at full speed it was pretty tough to see, it was dirty, but I’ll give some respect for being crafty about it (which is how Kobe gets away with throwing bows and whatnot) The shove in the back was worse to me. Getting shoved in the air like that sucks, its a helpless feeling and can result in fairly serious injury, its generally just a sh1tty move. The trip was dirty too, but more of a split second reaction to getting beat on a cut than running up to shove a guy from behind while he’s in the air.
surprised they didnt call those especially seing its against kobe.
Shouldn’t the Mamba…..the fastest, most dangerous snake in existence, be able to slide out of the way of these terrible crimes against humanity without much fear of being caught up? Slippin’ a little snake boy?
Dahntay is garbage and has more often than not let his defense yield fouls rather than stops. however, i hope he keeps getting minutes as i love watching stuff like this brew
haha! dookie…coach k stand up lol. ayo jackie moon, thats what kobe said after the game…
Eboy, Eboy, Eboy.
It’s too easy, truthbetoldteller. Too many guys cry for the dude like their his bit*h or some sh*t. So I take the opposite stance and act like the dude stole my car or some sh*t and give it back to ‘em.
He pushed him in the back on an alley oop as well.
Oh and truth….here’s a little bit of knowledge for you. Back in the day….when I was a young dude….and I “worshipped” Mike….whenever everyone else who hated Mike spoke in the negative….I would always just say “we’ll see” or “keep talking that sh*t” and 99% of the time after 1990, Mike’s track record was pretty undeniable in his big games/series. Only once did I have to eat my words and that was the year he came back from baseball and got beat by the Magic. Kobe doesn’t have that merit badge, especially since that big fat waste of nothing left the franchise 5 years ago.
Refs probably see it but not taking action. Often times this happens in the playoffs n the star player gets the benefit. Just take a look at the LA/Houston series for proof. Kobe prob does sneakier stuff that just goes unnoticed.
It’s okay to hate but seriously yours is on another level Eboy. Some of the stuff you say is hilarious though, that’s for sure.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm wonder what have happened if that was LeBron (Ejection)
Sorry tina, the reactions I get in return usually make my day.
the elbows and slaps that kobe throws at dahntay however is not addressed.
Nor is the yelling at the ref that NORMALLY results in a Tech. Refs may not have seen the trip (which looks blatant), but if KMart or anybody else had yelled at a ref the way Kobe did, they’d be t-ed up. the NBA sucks.
LOL Dahntay Jones is a punk.
I’m not the world’s biggest Lakers fan, but the stuff you say about Kobe is over the top to say the least, Eboy.
Those are cheap a$$ moves by Dahntay, Ron-ron is ROTFL in his house..
Great defense…MAMA THERE GOES THAT MAN….uhm crashing to to floor..
True that at regular speed you can’t see the trip. Makes you wonder how much “aggressive” play went on back in the day. Actually doesn’t make you wonder, we all know it was a bang-fest. But I like what Benates said – sorry but it’s true and if there are eventual consequences to be faced then so be it. Also Coilkstar hit it on the head, a shove in the back in the air ain’t right no matter how pissed you are at the guy. At the end of the day would you rather see hard core playoff basketball or a bunch of mini skirts and high heels out there…. You be the judge. 2009 has not disappointed yet.
PS. Bye bye Cavs, see ya next year.
Oh and Eboy gets better the more mocho-choco-frappa-lattes he has.
dirty play by a dirty player on a dirty team
or: thuggish play by a thug on a team of thugs
dirty play…all hes saying is that he can’t actually defend straight up, like Shane Battier
Has anybody stopped to think about the sh*&talking Kobe’s probably been doing to Dahntay all four games? There’s a reason he got punched by Chris Childs and Stephen Jackson threatened to f%&@ him up in Golden State this year.
The Golden Boy doesn’t get pushed around just because he’s great. What about the fact he’s an
a**hole and sometimes people get payback?
daytripper you think those guys aren’t talking do you watch the games Bean is focused Melo is focused you know what I’ll kill any of you on the court you all talk like that because you’re not ballplayers. Everyone shoots bows once again do you watch the games. You can talk all day but that stuff usually to a$$ whippings where I’m from . Catch me at the Melo youth cnter in baltmore you no ballplaying bums!!! I’m calling all you bums out who know nothing basketball cause if you did you know if you trip somebody you possibly lose your life some places seriously, jones ain’t no battier or even double B for that matter. When he was in his parents moved in with him attended every game now he’s a thug I’d smack his bum no skill having a$$ . Man I’m gone to hoop.

haha finaly someone gets kobe what he deserves!
jones is going to get an elbow to the face.
i hope somone knocks out lebron next.
get some punctuation, brother.
Eboy… I agree with most of what you say and I do appreciate your words here, but come on… looking at the vid right here, that was just dirty of Dahntay’s part. Kobe was right to get pissed off and I’m sure the lack of tech was a result of the refs realizing they blew it on the trip.
funny how eboy still gives a shoutout on MJ trumping Kobe on something as unrelated as Dahntay Jones’ trips and pushes, give it a rest.
It was a dirty play, no doubt. That’s a Duke trademark.
