Default Kobe is a funny guy..

Did anyone else notice he was trying to do the Battier trick to D-Will on that 4pt play last night? I guess he was impressed by it.

I personally don't like the play cos you can poke someone in the eyes. Stay away from the cheap tactics, Kobe. You're better than that

Instead of normally contesting a shot, you put your hand right over the shooter's eyes to distract him. Totally gay and I'm surprised Kobe would stoop to this junk lol

Haha, there's nothing wrong with that at all. It's laughable that you're complaining about a smart, non-contact defensive move.

Thing is, if you don't do it as precisely as Battier, you're gonna poke someone in the eye. I just think it's chicken-**** play and someone like Kobe shouldn't have to resort to that..

It's a very common defensive tactic in basketball.. as long as there's no contact there's nothing wrong with that.. you don't need to be expert for you to be able to use that tactic.. even grade schoolers can easily do that with ease.

Putting a hand in someone's face is fine but I just don't like guys putting their hands inches away from someone's eyes..

If the shooter gets poked, they get poked. It's a foul.

Shane Battier wasn't the first person to do this.

The majority of people do it.

No its not common its the Battier trick. And no its not defense its gay and you're gonna poke someones eye out. (sarcasm).

Konex you've never played basketball much in your lifetime huh? I guess stealing the ball by anticipating a pass and intercepting it is an AI tactic.

Gay is you and your anime avatars.
Gay is you posting about bball and posting crap like this.

Nah its not easy by any means to contest a shot like that and not make contact with the shooter. When doing this, you only have an instant to defend the shot and if you're late they get a good view at the basket on their shot or you can end up poking them in the eye. Its not easy at all.

I've never see anyone do it as well/close as Battier did it to Kobe that last game. Even Shane himself! Kobe could have blinked and felt his hand
