Our continuing series: Bruce Bowen is a dirty player
Here's the video evidence from last night's game in San Antonio, where Bruce Bowen intentionally knees Steve Nash in his "special area." I don't think there's any debating this at all. It was blatant and intentional. Even if Bowen wasn't necessarily trying to hit Nash in the nuts, Bowen clearly got that knee up in an effort to hit Nash.
I've played pickup and organized basketball for years and I've never seen something like this happen. Even when Dwyermaker and I were hustling guys on the blacktop courts of the South Bay and went by the names "Rain Maker" and "Elevator Man", we never saw anyone put a knee in someone's groin.
I'm just wondering when someone's finally going to say, "You know what, screw a suspension" and just unload on Bowen. Hopefully, I'll be watching that game.
