How come there weren't more incidences if he played 900+ games? Simple answer... he wasn't that dirty... No where near the ballpark of the bad boy pistons or malone.
And no offense man, but it seems like this is your first time seeing the Wally clip? How long have you been watching the NBA and the Spurs if I may ask?
That Wally clip was just funny. Yes, it was ridiculous, but obviously no one was hurt so I just laugh every time I see it.
I've been watching basketball, regularly, since before I was a teenager. I've been keeping up with the daily stats in the newspaper since the 95/96 season. I've even seen drafts going back to 95/96, remember Duncan as a beast in Wake Forest, remember how Pitino thought Boston would get the #1 pick and take Duncan. David Robinson is one of my 10 favorite players ever.
Fine, I take it back. But I had nothing else I could say when you say that Bowen isn't dirty. I just don't understand the difference in our ideas of dirty.
