    Just the link, I'm on an iPhone. Actually a bit funny and sad (from the pacer point of view).

    Yeah, not a fan of that.

    LeBron did it to Granger this year in the playoffs.

    Like the article said, if its an accident. No problem **** happens. But to do it on purpose, damn. Rose was always one of my favorite Pacers, but guess I gotta think a little differently of him now.

    For the record, I don't think of the act as funny, just that Rose unintentionally contributed to Kobe's legend by setting him up for a comeback in game 4.

    And he was in that 81 point game that Kobe had too

    And Lebron did it to Danny!

    Rose is candid. I appreciate that.

    Yeah. He admitted to a dirty play that tons and tons of players do. Do I condone it? No. Do I think differently of Rose? No.

    Admittedly, I skimmed through the article. I understood it as: Kobe went up for a jump shot, Rose stuck his foot out purposely so Kobe would land on it, Kobe did, got hurt, etc.

    ...if that's correct, I appreciate his candidness in admitting it.

    Jalen sure has no problem telling these kind of things to the public.

    You'd like to think he's beyond that now. His hesitancy to say he did it makes me wonder if it was a spur of the moment "I'll just stick my foot here," thing and not terribly premeditated.

    I mean, I understand in that sense, but I don't understand having a sense of appreciation about it given that it was a dirty act.

    I appreciate his candidness, not the act. The act is bush league. My point was that it is a pretty common dirty play in the league that rarely is admitted. I like that he admitted it, not that he did it.

    I think the entire point of Jalen mentioning it was to say that you shouldn't break the cardinal rule of basketball without getting paid back. He equates the 81 points that Kobe dropped on him to that act. I got the feeling that he regretted it.

    Being an a-hole isn't forgiven just because you admit it. I've never liked Jalen, especially as an "analyst" for ESPN, and I dislike him even more now. There is nothing more reprehensible in sports than intentionally injuring another player.

    Jalen has always been one of my favorite Pacers (I even strongly lobbied my parents to name my little brother Jalen to no avail) and this doesn't change that. Let me pose this question: if Kobe didn't go off in game 4 of that series and we wind up winning a championship, would Rose admitting this 12 years later make taint that championship? I'd still take the ring and I would like to think most on here would as well. In a perfect world, sportsmanship would always reign supreme, but in this world there is a thing called gamesmanship that is often far more effective - just ask Reginald Miller.

    There's a difference between breaking rules in the game and breaking the rule of life. Ever hear of Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan? There's never been an excuse for attempting to hurt someone to win a game.

    Understood. I just think there's a difference between sticking your foot underneath a guy and hitting someone in the knee with a billy club.

    It'd taint the championship just a little in my mind yes.
