Let's see here.
Celtics blowing out Lakers at Staples on 12/30/07, Ray Ray continuing to play hard in administering a beat-down on the purple over the game's final 7 minutes.
Lamar Odom runs down Jesus and tackles him.
Now let's turn our attention to game 6 of the NBA Finals.
Jesus has chewed up the Lakers defense in the first five games. In game six he nails a three to get the C's going, and then takes it to the rack, further exploiting the soft underbelly of the Laker bigs.
Lamar Odom steps in front of Ray, sticks his hand up, and appears to jump straight for his eye.
Ray Allen didn't think so.
Shuttlesworth said in the NBA Finals a desperate opponent (Lamar Odom) will do anything (play dirty) to try and get an advantage (to overcome their lack of heart).
