I was watching the Celtics – 76ers game last night on TNT and Marv Albert and Reggie Miller were calling the game. When the issue of Ray Allen‘s suspension from last night’s game because of elbowing Anderson Varejao in his Brazilian twig n’ berries on Sunday, Reggie Miller adamantly claimed that the suspension was wrong because it was an “inadvertent elbow.”
Now I’ve had elbows for a long time, and I’ve gotten knocked down playing basketball many times before too. But I don’t think my elbow has ever “inadvertently” fired back that quickly into someone’s groin.
Who knows, maybe Ray Allen has a nervous twitch when he goes down on all fours.
