this is just uncalled for just cause you cant guard him doesn't mean you aim for the nuts and then he goes and argues the call come on kobe nuts shot is a foul
He learned it from Artest lol. That was dirty. literally.
Just a lil' love tap. I see no foul. LOL
Kobe loves balls.
come on, really. Guys reach out and make contact on jump shooters all the time. It was a tap that accidently hit him in the balls. Foul, yes. But not some dirty play.
lol..i made a post about this move awhile back...bird,mreggie,magic,duncan,malone,rod strickland,nick th quick,gary payton,etc have all done this. is it right...in reality no. but its very very common in the nba. most of the time its the player trying to poke the guy in the stomach when they shoot but they may jump up higher then the defender thinks and they get them in the nuts
Kobe saw right where he was hitting Iggy no doubt. unneccesary play for Kobe
either way its very common in the nba so not a big deal among players. just likethe 2 finger ball buster that nba post players do. or the in the fumble pile things nfl players do. its shocking to some fans but to players its part of the game
