Video: Pau Gasol Fouled Hard by Mickael Pietrus to End Game 4
While a lot of people will be talking about Derek Fisher’s big three pointers to help the Lakers win Game 4 and the Magic blowing a five point lead with a minute to play, it was a play at the very end of the game that was pretty controversial. Likely frustrated by his team blowing the game, Mickael Pietrus took out some anger against Pau Gasol. The game was already over at this point:
I don’t know how to look at this as anything other than Pietrus being a poor sport. Honestly, watching this in full-speed reminds me of one of those Terry Tate Reebok commercials. Pietrus should have taken care of things during the game so he didn’t have to release frustration at the end of it.
