A couple nights ago, Bruce Bowen and Chris Paul got into an altercation in which perennially relegated the league to suspend Bowen for tonight’s game against the Detroit Pistons.
While running the show (down the court for those of you who refuse to seek the silver lining of that ambiguous phrase), Chris Paul was tripped up and so was Bowen. Bowen allegedly kicked Paul not once, but twice, while raising his hands to play the “what did I do?!” card.
I will grant you this: Bruce Bowen should be suspended. But what about Chris Paul? I’m a huge fan of Chris Paul, but he took not one, but two shots at Bowen’s groin while he was on the grand, and the NBA would rather look away, as Paul is one of the NBA’s biggest young stars today.
C’mon David Stern, don’t be a dumbass. Yeah, Bowen plays dirty and uses questionable tactics, but what about Paul’s two groin-punch attempts? I guess it’s suddenly OK.
