Was Kobe really fouled? Or, is he just looking to blame someone for his bum ankle? Kobe believes he was fouled  by Dahntay Jones, and that the ref should have called it when he made the now fateful jump shot that sprained his ankle. Basketball fans are divided. Watch and decide for yourself:

Kobe later tweeted:

Kobe Bryant ✔ @kobebryant

#dangerousplay that should have been called. Period.

When talking to reporters he commented that the refs should protect the shooters more saying:

“First and foremost, the officials really need to protect shooters,” Bryant said. “You just can’t go into shooters. That’s a dangerous play.

“I’ll just do what I have to do,” he continued. “I can’t get my mind past the fact that I have to wait a year to get revenge. It’s just a very, very dangerous play.”


Not everyone agreed, including defender Dahntay Jones who tweeted:

“Tape doesn’t lie. Ankle was turned on the floor after the leg kick out that knocked him off balance. I would never try to hurt the man”


“Leg kick that makes contact with a defensive player is an offense foul. Period. The nba changed that rule 2 yrs ago. Stop it!”


“I have the utmost respect for @kobebryant I would never try to intentionally hurt him. Just wanted to contest the fadeaway
