    You can see the play in the ESPN highlight video here. It does look almost exactly like what happened with Manu. I'm really not sure why Kobe is so determined to channel the ghost of Bill Cartwright.

    So, we are supposed to target Wade's dislocated shoulder with hard hits, but Kobe is a villain when players foul his elbow with their heads?

    I see a difference between a hard hit and an elbow to the face. I guess it's a matter of personal preference where you draw the line.

    I like how you phrased that.

    Speaking of elbows to the head...

    YouTube - Tyler Hansbrough suffers cheap shot from Gerald Henderson

    The colour commentator is a moron. How can he say that was a clean block attempt? "He was going for the ball", "Nothing dirty about that", "I don't like the call at all", "I think this is a poor piece of officiating. I didn't see any intent whatsoever", etc.

    Your thoughts?

    Looking closely at the arm position, it seems that Henderson coiled his fist/arm inward toward his body. There was no extension of the arm. It was a forearm shiver to what ever got in the way of the swing.

    It was deliberate, close range and meant to stop using blunt force.

    I look for a suspension.

    Hope this does not turn into a racial or nationality stuff but why Kobe only targets non American players?

    I don't think a sample size of two is enough to draw any conclusion about which type of player he likes to flail his elbow around. And let's not forget (though it was a different sort of play) the elbow he threw at Mike Bibby in the final seconds of Game 6 in the 2002 Western Conference finals, which of course was whistled on Bibby for fouling Kobe's elbow with his face.

    Also, he seems to mainly be targeting men... whereas Artest does not discriminate.

    Uh, can you say Colorado?

    Oh, sorry, you said "mainly".

    O.k.

    That Colorado thing was a different type of violation. I don't think Kobe is arguing that Marko "wanted" it.

    I think that the next time Artest comes to the Palace, the first 5,000 fans should get frying pans.

    Be that as it may, I'm the only one still sporting black and a breathing apparatus.

    I am the first...the last...and the only.

    When people on the forum hear "Darth" they first think of "Taters"...not "haters".

    Sorry, but you'll need your own schtick...my bruddah! :ner-ner:
