I knew right away that Kobe was going to get suspended for that elbow he spoon fed Manu Ginobili. That was clearly intentional. You don’t accidentally swing an elbow on the way down from a jumper. It looked like he hit him flush, too, though Manu is a proud SAG card holder.
The only part that perplexes me is that Kobe got just a one-game suspension, the same penalty Baron received. How is that? Baron missed on his swipe and Kobe connected. Isn’t acctual assault a worse crime than attempted assault?
