Raja Bell - stupid play by a smart man.
Game 6 will be wild and if the league is STUPID will suspend Raja for a clothesline of Kobe in the fourth quarter. The foul, while stupid, was harmless and part of a very physical matchup that has gone on for 5 games now.
Here is the clip and article - you decide . Raja is a mellow dude and took a nasty elbow from Kobe - right in front of me that the refs did not even call. Taken in context, Raja should be forgiven for the stupid emotional reaction.
This ESPN clip stuff is a winner by the way. What a brand. I love the way they have finally integrated the clips into the boxscore.
