Default Hibbert thinks Battier kneed him on purpose

http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.c...medium=twitter

Roy Hibbert ✔
@Hoya2aPacer

U can knee or kick me every time u drive 2the rim. Ill be there 2protect the rim. That wasn't inadvertent. Battier knew what he was doing



Hell its so damn obvious because Battier never even tries to dunk in a game.

Seemed like it was obvious to me...If players normally led with their knees, it would happen a lot more often.

I don't get why that wasn't a flagrant 1. It was definitely reckless. Hibbert is 100% right.

I guarantee in this series they hit Battier and he lies down for 5 minutes until the flagrant is called then bounces up like a soccer player.

Battier is a bitch from Duke. Not surprising at all

It was obvious. I was taught when driving to lead with your knee to create space.

Battier is a scrappy player. When Melo lit up the HEAT a few months ago, the game was pretty much decided and he fouled Melo pretty hard for no apparent reason.

So it doesn't surprise me he would do it on purpose. Although it seems more like him trying to do something to keep from getting his shit stuffed at the rim. Karl Malone scored countless points with that method

of course it was deliberate, he wasn't going for the nuts but he was going for the knee. I used to do this back in the day when the refs weren't calling hard fouls on defenders.

I don't care if Battier did it on purpose. I would have done the same thing. I hate Miami and they're the last team I wish they'd win a ring but I don't have a problem with Battier doing what he did.

Fixed. And I'll take it a step further: Battier is the dirtiest player in the NBA.

Uh, it was completely obvious and intentional. Nobody jumps like that. He was intentionally trying to cause another player to be harmed. Those are usually Flagrants.

Not right now he's not. Battier's got a longer history of doing shit like this. He's just really sneaky with his dirtiness.
