    Makes it a little more likely, to me, that his hit on Danny was intentional. I thought so at the time, but that wipes away the doubt.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Intentionally dirty play.

    Given the scope of the shortened season, I can't imagine he deserves any less than 7 games for that stomp.

    On the first play on that highlight, he definitely flops when Love is making a move with the ball.
    As does every other player in the league. The play where Scola got stomped on though was not a flop at all.

    In two games of terrible sportsmanship and running off his mouth he has gone from admired role model to being hated more than Bill Laimbeer. Actually Bill never even stomped on someone's head, the only other guy I can think of who stooped to that level is Albert Haynesworth.

    What an A-Hole.

    Disagree on the first point, agree on the second. No big man flops harder or more frequently than Scola.

    It looks unintentional to me. And apparently Love sought out Scola after the game and apologized.

    I have seen/heard nothing from KLove this past week to indicate to me that he respects the game of basketball or his opposition. Dude has seriously come across as nothing but a thug this season.

    Looked entirely intentional to me. I guess if he did personally apologize it makes me feel a little better, but still that was definitely a dick move.

    Everything looks measured and intentional in slow-mo... in real time, it looked pretty incidental to me.

    And to say that Love doesn't respect the game of basketball....

    What has he done this week to indicate that? Cheap foul on Granger, calling out an opponent after a loss, stomping on Scola's face... I'm sure he respects the game of basketball, but this week he's acting as if its his god-given right to play it. I don't get to see a lot of Kevin Love, but based on this week, count me as highly unimpressed.

    Whether he meant to step on his face or not, he knew he was going to plant off Scola one way or another. Most people wouldnt have took off and planted like that knowing someone was directly underneath you. Dirty play.

    It amazing how my respect for Love has done a complete 180 this past week. I used to really enjoy watching him. Now hes just another NBA player I cant wait to see the Pacers beat the hell out of

    Really? Love looked right down at Scola before stepping on his face.

    I don't understand the outrage on this one... looks like Love probably fouled him, and after Scola went down he tried to tangle Love up. And on the earlier play on the highlight, it looks like he takes a few swipes at Love and possibly tried to trip him after the flop as well.

    But to be honest, it seems to me like Scola has been in dust-ups like this before... I know there was the Derek Fisher body check in the playoffs a few years ago, and either last season or the one before Rudy Gay went full Ultimate Warrior flying shoulder tackle on him after a skirmish.

    In my opinion, Scola is a cheap shot artist who falls down a lot and frequently tangles someone else up in the process. Almost every game I watch him play, I turn to the person next to me and say "This league needs to fine people for flopping."
    Nah, the league can just allow players to intentionally face stomp other players in retaliation. You seem to be condoning it. Why not?

    Think of how many times you see a guy go down in traffic, and then how many times you've seen a guy get stepped on, ANYWHERE on his body? It's surprisingly infrequent. You're giving Love WAY more benefit of the doubt than he's due.

    Also to whoever said that Love apologized to Scola after the game--wouldn't you think that Scola would mention that in his post-game interview? He clearly wanted to minimize the incident but doesn't even hint that he thinks it was unintentional.

    He's saving face. Dude stepped on him and never looked back- not the behavior of a remorseful individual. Plus, as others have mentioned, he looks right at Scola before planting his foot.

    Luis Scola will never forget the way that Kevin Love celebrated after stomping his face.

    Oh wait, wrong meme?

    In what world does "I think it was unintentional" mean "That flopper deserved to get his flopping face stomped in"? Get a clue.

    If this was done intentionally I 100% think that Love acted inappropriately and deserves to get suspended. I don't at all condone intentionally stomping someone's face. It was no place in basketball. But I don't think he did it intentionally.

    If someone is accused of murder and I defend that person, is that condoning murder, or is it saying that I don't think the person did it?

    There is no way to say this without sound like a Love apologist but it is very possible that he could have looked at Scola while his leg was on the way down and still have had no way to arrest his forward motion.

    Douchebag or not, Kevin Love would be a hell of a player on the Pacers... Love/Hibbert/West/Hansbrough?
