Default Batum "I wanted to give him a good reason to flop."

His reasoning for punching Navarro in the groin.
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/olympic...-to-spain.html
Quote:

"I wanted to give him a good reason to flop," Batum said.

Batum was angry with the Spanish guards for falling to the floor for what he believed was incidental contact throughout Spain's 66-59 quarterfinal victory over France at North Greenwich Arena.
Asked by Yahoo! Sports if he believed his punch to the groin had given Navarro "good reason," Batum smiled and said, "I hope so."
France's coaches and several players believed Spain intentionally lost a final preliminary round game on Monday when Spain blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead to Brazil. The loss allowed Spain to face France in the quarterfinals, and would potentially keep them away from the powerful United States until the gold-medal game.
Asked if watching the Spain-Brazil game that he was convinced that Spain had taken a dive in the fourth quarter, Batum told Y!, "They did what they had to do."
Told some won't think that a deliberate punch to the groin is in the 'Olympic spirit,' Batum told Yahoo! Sports: "Do you think if you lost a game on purpose, that's the Olympic spirit?"

I just find it hilarious that FIBA ball/rules are such that the players don't care about the consequences of bonehead moves like this one.

I agree that the rules are too strict in the NBA, but I don't think you should be able to stay in the game after intentionally punching a dude in the balls when you get mad.

I just donīt knwo why he punched JCN, when heīs like the least girly on Spain. He should have punched Rudy.

Maybe he thought if he punched Pau or Rudy there, they wouldnīt feel anything.
