    and he was our guy and Blake Griffin looks like he’d be cast as a jock bully from a 1980’s teen flick.

    And Andre didn't have reputation of a punk.

    It's similar to why Grayson Allen is disliked so much, because he earned it.

    Fair enough. Getting in his face should have sufficed.

    He makes a kicking motion just before he gets shoved. Very unnecessary in itself.

    Ayton had no reason to walk over to Reaves and stand over him. He put himself in that situation.

    It looked to me like he took a step forward at the same time Reaves was turning over, which made his foot ever so lightly contact Reaves.

    It happens quickly. Hard to see exactly. You may be right. Again, he had no reason to be standing over Reaves and being in his space like that.

    Totally agree he shouldn't have been in his space. I mean, someone could try to speculate that he was making sure Reaves was OK, but opponents almost never do that.

    Yeah, he could have been but I don't think so. Its likely if he was just asking if he was ok, Beverly would have heard that. Maybe. Also, Ayton got a tech so I'm guessing he wasn't an innocent party.

    I mean....when is the last time a star New Orleans player didn't end up in L.A.? Big John is just an early adapter.

    like the Oregon Ducks. Although their loss was more blatant since they were way ahead.
