My goodness, that GIF is incredible.
Regarding Kobe, he's just butthurt that he is going to lose some games/more attempts at the scoring record. That was clearly not a dirty play, and the fact that Kobe says they need to "protect shooters" is laughable. Kobe is a great, PHYSICAL defender. If they called a foul every time a shooter came down on a defender, Kobe would play 10 minutes a game.
If Jones had ran through Kobe, then sure, I could see the complaint. But, Dahntay simply contested the shot, and Kobe happened to land on the very edge of his foot. To think someone did that on purpose is absurd.
I'm a bit disappointed, I think giving Paul opportunities to go H2H with guys like Kobe is great for his confidence/overall game.
