500th Reminder That Bruce Bowen Is Dirty

For a guy with a very limited skill set, Bruce Bowen has had himself one hell of a career. He’s won titles, and has earned the reputation as one of the better one-on-one defenders in the League. It’s a shame that, years from now, he’ll mostly be remembered as perhaps the dirtiest player of his generation.

Last night, while playing in his 500th career game, Bruce decided to play a little soccer with Chris Paul’s body as CP3 laid on the ground. Click here for the video evidence. The worst part of the whole thing is the “What-I-didn’t-do-anything” look on his face afterwards.

”They did a good job coming out and trying to be more physical with us,” Paul said. ”They tried to switch Bruce Bowen on to me, who I know likes to hold and grab and things like that, but we tried not to let it affect us.”

You forgot that he likes to kick people in the face, Paul.

The fact that Bowen, in spite of all his nonsense, has yet to get himself Kermit Washingtoned is one of the great mysteries of all time. Right up there with Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and Isiah’s job security.
