    Default Oops! [Kobe] did it again!

    The exact same shot that he administered to Ginobili.

    I'm sorry, but that is not a natural movement, flailing your arm backwards like that.

    Funny how he never did that until recently.

    Question: If this is the second time he's being punished for the same offense, doesn't it warrant a bigger suspension?

    I agreed with one game the first time, but when you do it again, it starts to establish a pattern which needs to be addressed. How many times is this gonna happen before the plenalty is upped?

    This one looks more intentional than the first one.

    Blehhh, but I'm curious to see how the youngsters play without Lamar and Kobe. I have a feeling they'll play well together.

    Ok, I'd just like to say... What the hell????? He gets run into from the side, he throws his arm out to regain balance when he lands (which is exactly what I'd do if I just got hit from the side), and he gets suspended? I can see this becoming a new tactic for the playoffs... When the opposing team's best player is shooting, hit him in his side while his arms are up and let him smack you on the head as he tries to regain balance, and that way you get to play the next game without having to worry about him! I'm actually disgusted with this.

    I gave Kobe the benefit of the doubt the first time.

    This time looks pretty intentional to me.

    Just my opinion.

    That's my opinion on this as well.

    I thought it looked intentional the first time too, but a dead-on repeat of the "accidental" motion? Um, yeah, and when Reggie kicked his legs after shooting it was pure chance too.

    Kobe is pretty bold to keep doing things like this. If I was the opposing coach or one of the other team's players, I'd teach Kobe a "career lesson" pulling out shinanigans like this. Best believe he won't do it against the Knicks.

    If that's the case, then how come he has never done it until recently, and now has suddenly done it "accidentally" TWICE?

    How come no other players make that same motion?

    If it happens again Kobe will get a big suspension and all the refs are put on notice to look for this from Kobe

    Though this did look more intentional than before, I still don't think it was. Much like the first time, the defender ran into him - while he was still in the air - before he threw his arm out. I think the arm was to catch his balance. I don't see Kobe being dumb enough to do that on purpose especially after being suspended for it once already.

    That doesn't look natural at all; it's just a cheap shot.

    Yeah this looks like he was retaliating for being bumped by Jaric on the block
