Jason Smith gets ejected after flagrant foul on Blake Griffin

Jason Smith apparently forgot which sport he was playing, with this hit on Blake Griffin

In last night's Hornets-Clippers game, Jason Smith dropped a shoulder into Blake Griffin, earning himself a Flagrant 2 and an ejection. Check out the hit:




In the first angle, it really doesn't look that bad. But when you look at the replays, it's clear that Smith lowered his shoulder and hit Griffin like he was a hockey or football player.

The best (or worst?) part is that Smith throws his hands up as if he did nothing. Nice try, man.

It wouldn't shock me to see him get a suspension, especially since he pulled this against one of the poster boys of the NBA.

What do you think... does this hit warrant a suspension? Or was the ejection enough?

what are you talking about? that was a cheap shot to Blake that loser didnt even attempt to go for the ball he just lowered his shoulder and instead of going for the ball he tackled Blake, that sad part is for something like this the no community applauds? very classy i must say to hurt another player by the no squad.

Right, but hockey and basketball are two VERY different sports... with VERY different rules and VERY different equipment.

I Wouldn't Be Surprised If The NBA Had A Bounty-Like System.  You Know Jason/Josh Smith Needs the Extra Incentive.

who's Jason Smith?  wow, and then you typed Josh Smith, him I know, but not this joke

Ha... good catch. And it's fixed now. But yeah, I have no idea who that guy is... and that probably has a lot to do with why he has now been suspended for 2 games.

Also, he deserved it, imo.
