Jason Smith is going to be a bit lighter in the wallet after Thursday’s game. Either that or he should really take up professional hockey. Smith was ejected from the New Orleans Hornets-Los Angeles Clippers game after hip checking Blake Griffin like it was his job.
Chris Paul and Randy Foye weren’t happy and I wouldn’t be either. Blake is a nuisance, but there is no place for fouls like that. That reminds me of some of the stuff that James Posey would pull. It is a simple disgrace to basketball.
I would expect Smith to be suspended for that foul. He was ejected due to the foul and I would be shocked if he plays in the Hornets next game. Smith was completely reckless on that play and he should have to pay the price.
Exciting game though down there in New Orleans. Samuel L. Jackson is certainly getting a fun game to watch. Maybe he needs to go Pulp Fiction on Smith to teach him a lesson. It probably couldn’t hurt.
Thanks to CBS Sports for the video.
