Dahntay Jones Edition
Dahntay Jones picked up another flagrant foul for his trip on Kobe Bryant last night after the league reviewed the play. This brings his flagrant foul point total to 3. The immediate suspension starts once a player gets four (2 points for flagrant 2, 1 for flagrant 1). This trip was shown over and over and over on ESPN because it involved their precious Kobe Bryant, which went on to spur the conversation, “Is Dahntay Jones a dirty player?” Phil Jackson thinks so. So does Andre Iguodala, who said, “dontay jones, dirty??? no waaaaayyyy (sarcasm)….”[sic] on his twitter. Kobe also used sarcasm to get his point across during his post game interview saying, “I just fell on my face for no reason, I’m a klutz.” This isn’t the first time in these playoffs Dahntay has been called dirty either. In the first round against the New Orleans Hornets, Byron Scott called him, “a little dirty”.
In response to all of these dirty comments Dahntay went on to say, “(I’m) Just playing hard,…I’m sorry. I’m trying to be aggressive and give it all I have out there. My teammates appreciate it.” And appreciate it they do. When Kenyon Martin heard about Phil Jackson’s comments regarding Dahntay, Kenyon got a big grin on his face and said, “Hey Tay, you made it, dog, you’re a dirty player now. Welcome. It’s an elite club being considered one of those.” Again, these Nuggets are embracing their role as bad guys and loving every minute of it.
Yesterday was the night Monday Night Raw was supposed to take place at the Pepsi Center. The wrestling fans showed up, but only to receive their refunds at the box office before the NBA game. Meanwhile in LA, Vince McMahon went on to do his best reenactment of his version of what happened with the date screw up and had a mock 5 on 5 match with wrestlers draped in fake jerseys of the respective teams. The Lakers, of course, were victorious at the Staples Center. Too bad for Lakers fans, that will be the last time this season a team in yellow wins there. After watching them play last night, I’d rather have the “players” shown above than what Phil Jackson is putting out on the court. They could at least get a rebound, but I doubt they’d pass the drug testing.
Looks like people are starting to realize how good the Nuggets actually are. Here are a few polls given by ESPN with the NBA in question.Not only does america think the Nuggets will beat the Lakers this round. But they are expecting a Nuggets/Magic NBA finals, much to the disgust to the NBA and Nike. Looks like they better get started on their Melo and Dwight puppets.
