Whomever said basketball isn't a contact sport is absolutely insane.
Heck, every once in a while, you see hits...or fouls that would make hockey players blush.
This is one of those. Last night, New Orleans Hornet forward Jason Smith was bound and determined to not let Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers do what he does best on the fastbreak...dunk the ball.
The result is...well...shall we say less than popular and probably would...and should cost Smith some money.
1615 UPDATE: Smith has been given a 2-game suspension for his hip check...and most of the Internet and TV Universe is aghast....
