Some players are upset with Dahntay Jones for the play that injured Kobe Bryant. Here's one strongly worded text:
Dahntay Jones insists he didn't intentionally injure Kobe Bryant during Wednesday's game, when Bryant landed on Jones' foot after attempting a game-tying shot.
However, there are some players who blame Jones for the injury and who have been very critical of him. Here's what one anonymous player texted me:
"What's up with Dahntay Jones? It's f***ed up what he did. He needs a huge fine and suspension. He can't be hurting guys, man."
Jones wasn't fined or suspended for the controversial play. In fact, he wasn't even called for a foul. However, on Thursday, the NBA released a statement saying that officials should have called a foul on the play and granted Bryant two free throws.
