Last night LeThug literally kicked a player in the balls. It's almost impossible to believe.
In the play, Wade is bringing the ball up court, and is checked by Sessions. Wade stops suddenly, and falls slightly off balance, and then as clear as day, with a ref right behind him, kicks Sessions in the genitals. I'm not sure he even got a foul called on the play! LeThug's sense of impunity is becoming genuinely frightening. He is going to seriously hurt someone, possibly Rondo, possibly soon. I get it that the league wants this, wants the hockey style blood and guts, but are the rest of the owners and the rest of the players really willing to watch this happen? Are they actually that eager to see glatiatoral style mayhem on the court?
Of course Wade should have been instantly ejected from the game. He literally kicked another player in the balls. Yeah, I know, he disguised it a little, but for God's sake, this time he BARELY even did that. Usually he puts a little more effort into his acting. This time it was pretty much 'hey, I'm going to go ahead and kick this guy in the balls and no one is going to do anything about it." Can you imagine the storm of criticism that would come down on Rondo if he kicked another player in the balls? And no doubt there would be another suspension, if Rondo did it.
So now I guess Shame Battier has to do it too ...
Wade is on a trajectory to very seriously hurt someone, possibly Rondo. It's very disturbing. It's long past time for fans around the league to speak up, and make it clear that we do not want hockey style basketball.
