Olympic hoopster goes after wrong ball, punches rival in the crotch8/8/2012
Carmelo Anthony was all hot and bothered about the below-the-belt tap he took in Team USA's win over Argentina, but that was nothing compared to what France’s Nic Batum dished out to Spain's Juan Carlos Navarro on Wednesday. With just seconds left in France's 66-59 quarterfinal loss, Batum didn't just intentionally foul — he clubbed Navarro in the crotch with a tight-fisted swing, as captured here in a GIF tweeted by BuzzFeed. Amazingly, Batum wasn't ejected, and he certainly wasn't remorseful. "I wanted to give him a good reason to flop," said the Portland Trail Blazers forward. [Source]
Should Batum have been ejected from the game?
