Last night, I made this brief entry while watching the Spurs and Suns square off:
11:35 PM CST: Seriously, did Manu just kick Stoudemire in the crotch while driving for a layup?
Fortunately, we now have a summary of the whole mess on ESPN.com:
Stoudemire’s eventful evening included a technical foul after a collision with Manu Ginobili with 9:07 remaining. Ginobili drove toward the basket, leaped to shoot and caught Stoudemire in the groin with a knee as Stoudemire delivered a hand to the Spurs guard’s face.
“I think they’re on purpose,” Stoudemire said of Ginobili’s leading knees. “He’s a flopper and likes to cause contact.” Said Ginobili, “I think I was in motion before he came. I had of course no intention of hurting anybody.”
We all know Manu plays a clean and honest game, right? Â Gag me.
