SHHHH--DON'T TELL THE REFS!!

But do you really believe that Rudy's hand flailing into Kevin Garnett's mouth the other night--drawing blood--was "inadvertant?"  I was at the game, and at the time I didn't see the contact.  Afterwards, I noticed KG holding his mouth in pain, but I didn't know what had happened.  Only when I reviewed the game on my DVR did I find out.  The Mikes called the play inadvertant, but it looked awfully Kobe-esque to me.   And a friend tells me that Wheels and Rice had the same take I did.

Back when KG and his followers bullied and taunted the Blazers into the embarrassing loss in Boston, I predicted that on 12-30 in the Rose Garden SOMEBODY wearing a Blazer jersey would pop KG.  But Rudy Fernandez would have been about the last guy I'd have picked to deliver the blow.

Still, I STRONGLY suspect that Rudy knew exactly what he was doing when he sent his off arm flailing up and in the direction of KG's face the other night.  How many times do you let a guy tee off on you before you let him know there's a price to be paid?

Still, just as in the cases when Kobe "accidentally" pops a defender in the face, there's room for argument.  What do you think?
