I asked Nicolas Batum why he hit Juan-Carlos Navarro in the groin. "I wanted to give him a good reason to flop," Batum said.

Filthy act by a guy that is suddenly seeming to be unhinged. I was already glad they didn't get him, even more so now.

I heard (not really, just made this up) that Stern was considering this as an approach to stem the tide of flopping in the NBA. Batum looks pissed in that video; wonder what led up to this (think it is more than just a flop)...

He should be suspended.

His face and body language are just SUPER angry. And that's absolutely a flat out "aim for the balls" nut shot.

One of the dirtiest things I've seen in basketball.

Between this and Kirilenko's performance, I can't disagree one bit.

With the Batum nut shot, the thing that I find most troubling is that a considerable time afterward, he was still pissed enough to admit it with pride. And they that Ivan Johnson has anger issues...

Batum finished the elimination game with 9 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block on 3-for-12 shooting in 32 minutes.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports on Twitter Batum's post-game comments.

quote:

"I wanted to give him a good reason to flop," Batum said.

Told Batum some won't think groin shot is in Olympic spirit. Batum: "Do you think if you lost a game on purpose, that's the Olympic spirit?"

Batum said he believes that Spain tanked final preliminary game against Brazil to face France in quarterfinals.

Finally, I asked Batum if he felt like his punch ultimately gave Navarro a 'good reason' to flop. "I hope so," Batum said.


Batum has since issued an apology (tried to save face...) on Twitter.

quote:

I want to apologize for my stupid act at the end, I showed a bad image of France and myself, Congrats to team Spain. Still proud of my team and teamates, we gave the best from ourselves for our country. Now I cheers for the women bball team!

Would have been funny if we had got him. Rubio would have froze him out for the next 4 seasons.

http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/_/id/8252042/sources-dwight-howard-los-angeles-lakers-four-team-deal-complete

Sources: Howard to Lakers

A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is complete, multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday night.

A source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com's Marc Stein the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.

In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless, a source told Stein.

Sources close to the process told Stein and ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne that a trade call with the league office has been scheduled for Friday to secure the necessary NBA approval to make the deal official.

Lakers forward Pau Gasol had been in and out of talks, sources told Shelburne.

Earlier Thursday, Yahoo! Sports, citing sources, reported that talks of a four-team trade involving Howard have taken place this week and have "grown serious."

Sources told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard that Philadelphia has not spoken to Bynum or his representatives, and has no assurances he will sign a long-term extension with the team.

"The Sixers are willing to take a shot (without Bynum's commitment)," one source said.

Although Bynum signing an extension with the 76ers is not out of the question, according to a source, his stance all summer has been he only will sign an extension with the Lakers.

Bynum, who grew up about an hour away from Philadelphia in Plainsboro, N.J., could sign a three-year, $60 million extension this season or wait to become a free agent after the season and be eligible for a five-year, $102 million deal.

Near the end of July, Howard met with Magic general manager Rob Hennigan and reiterated he still wants to be traded, and if he isn't, will leave the team as a free agent after next season.

The Lakers' position on Howard has remained relatively unchanged for the past few months, league sources familiar with the situation told ESPNLosAngeles.com. The Lakers always have been willing to trade for Howard without assurances he'd re-sign with them after the season, believing that once Howard experienced a championship culture, he would want to stay.

Wow.

Lakers are officially scary.

Denver gets Iggy AND dumps Harrington just for Afflalo and a 1st? Total steal.

The Magic get the shaft.

That trade is so bad for Orlando that their franchise should be immediately taken away and closed down due to sheer incompentence.

I saw this coming and didn't at the same time, if this makes any sense.

But, now, we gotta win. No excuse.

According to Woj, the Nets final offer in July: Lopez, Humphries (1 year, $9.6M), Brooks, 4 unprotected No. 1's for Howard, JRich, Duhon, Clark.

I watched the press conference on NBA.TV when they announced Jacque Vaughn as their head coach. Everyone on the podium (including Hennigan) seemed in over their head.

Didn't the NBA void a infinitely fairer trade for Paul a year ago? This is unbelievable. The other GM's should be lighting up cigarettes and asking Orlando if it was good for them too.

The Magic are receiving four first round draft picks. One is Moe Harkless and the other three are protected firsts. Lakers don't give up the pick until 2017. Bynum wanted to stay with Lakers. They might get him back when he becomes a free agent. This makes me sick. If the Lakers win another title I am going to have to hear about Kobe and his six rings. The ones he has have basically come to him gift wrapped. While Howard can't expect to be fed the ball anymore his scoring average should go up as he will get many opportunities rebounding Kobe's missed shots.

Wow that offer sure looks a lot better than the one they got in the end.

If Bynum is smart he will sign the extension now and get the $60 Million before the career ending injury that is coming some time soon.

They did, but that was a special case - the League owned the Hornets at the time, so Stern could step in.
