Thomas Robinson, the rookie from Kansas, got tossed from an NBA game Wednesday for this violent elbow to the throat of Detroit’s Jonas Jerebko. Robinson will almost certainly be suspended for a couple games. And in the event you think Robinson was responding to a cheap shot from Jerebko … no. Robinson just snapped. This is the worst NBA elbow I’ve seen since Metta World Peace drilled James Harden last season.
Hurt his groin. Returned.
The poor umpire nearly fell too.
Sad tale of Branch’s dogs also involves potential political pressure.
Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
