Spurs forward Bruce Bowen has a habit of sliding his feet under the feet of the man he's guarding when they go up for a jumpshot. It's an extremely dirty and dangerous play, and Bowen's got a history with it. Both Ray Allen and Vince Carter have wanted to beat his ass at various points in the not-too-distant past.
He did it to Knicks guard Steve Francis on Monday, injuring him, and causing him to miss this Saturday night Knicks/Spurs rematch. Isiah Thomas, when asked what he'd do if a player did the same thing to him, said this before the rematch:
"I'd beat the (stuffing) out of somebody," he said. "Really, I would. That's murder. Excuse me, but in the NBA, when you're in the air, you're really exposed and there's a certain code."
Unfortunately, they did make up after the game. It was just odd to see men with such different levels of credibility arguing. It's kind of like a priest getting into an argument with Mark Foley. Wait... that doesn't work. Nevermind.
