Kobe Bryant on Serge Ibaka chopping Blake Griffin’s groin: I would have smacked him in the mouth
When asked about Ibaka’s chop to Griffin’s groin Sunday during the Thunder-Clippers game, Bryant told reporters Monday how he would have reacted.
“I probably would have smacked him in the mouth,” Bryant said of Ibaka, via Mark Medina of the LA Daily News.
Kobe said he would have dealt with the pain of being hit in the groin afterwards.
Dwight Howard had a very different reaction, joking around like usual.
“You gotta wear a cup,” Howard said.
If the NBA decides to suspend Ibaka, it could help the Lakers, who play at Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
