Basketball is a contact sport: Tony Allen kicks Chris Paul in the face

At times the NBA can be as physical as the NFL. Well, not entirely, but sometimes things happen to remind us that basketball is a contact sport. Just ask Chris Paul.

When going in for the layup he was kicked in the face by Memphis Grizzlie's Tony Allen. Allen received two flagrant fouls and was eventually ejected from the game. I don't think Allen kicked Paul on purpose, but it happened. With NBA refs now not even allowing players to show emotion, certainly they were going to have to address the kick in the head.
