Wallace has collapsed lung, broken rib

37 posts in this topic

Not dirty at all. Bynum clearly was just trying to keep Wallace from making an easy basket. At no point did Bynum swing his elbow in a striking manner or do anything that remotely looked to intentionally cause injury. All he did was throw his body at GW with his arms raised, and the elbow just happened to hit him in the wrong spot.

Flagarent, yes. Malicious, no. Bynum was just trying to make a play, not trying to hurt Gerald. So being called for a foul is appropriate, suspension is not.

He threw his elbow into his ribcage/underarm.

Doesn't get much more flagrant than that.

In addition to just throwing a lazy hip check to get under Wallace as he was going into the air.

Hmmm, watch the video. I see no difference in intent between Morrison hitting Gasol in the head while in the air and Bynums elbow. Different result certainly. In fact Wallace charged into Bynum.

It is not even close. Ammo actually decided to play defense while going for the ball on a 7-4 tall guy. Bynum never went for the ball and instead lead with an elbow into an airborn player. He also didn't bother to extend his free arm out and catch Wallace either.

Honestly, I hope that this catches up to Bynum and players around the league inadvertently stick him in the nads on a nightly basis.

This injury will cost the Bobs at least 2-3 wins. We will see if that is the difference between the playoffs or sitting at home.
