Kidd did not look like he was going for the ball. Plus it's from behind. Pretend for a second that Kidd didn't go to Cal. Would you call it dirty?
1. I don't want to go into water that is long since under the bridge, but I truly don't care that Kidd went to Cal. I just don't have any feeling for him whatsoever as a "Cal Guy". I haven't viewed him as a "Cal Guy" since he left.
2. I said it was bush league and I have no problem for ripping him for it. Dirty? Okay, that too. No question. My point in bringing up the football guys is that whether you commit a bush league penalty/foul has little to do with being a gangbangin wifebeater. Heck, guys have done crap like this on the field of play who went on to be preachers or otherwise make it a point to live "moral" lives.
The only issue I had with the original poster was that bringing up allegations of spousal abuse and other activities from over 15 years ago because he commited a bush league foul on the basketball court is really over the top. If he left the "gangbangin wifebeater" comment out of it, I would have agreed wholeheartedly.
