LOL There was no intent to injure Parker on that play.
It was an intentional trip - can you really think otherwise? - and a person is presumed to intend the natural and probable consequences of his actions. Parker could have easily been injured badly. Dahntay Jones got suspended for doing something very similar to Kobe in 2009, albeit not as craftily.
I like Tony Allen, come on ...
LOL intent to injure. Parker could take that fall 100 times and 99 times he is fine. The 1 other time he gets a bruise on his arm. This wasn't taking someone's legs out on a dunk when they are 10 feet in the air. He fell 2 feet at a slow speed. Of course it was on purpose and crafty (Oh I just pivoted my left foot and whoops).
Slow speed? Uh, not really, but maybe slower than usual for Parker since he had had just burnt him with a spin. Not sure that makes it better, because Allen likely thought Parker was in less control of his body than usual.
LOL at 99 times out of 100. Cool stat.
