Gordon had to contend with Kobe Bryant on the game's final play, trying to get open for the three-pointer with the Clippers trailing, 88-85.

"It was like we didn't play basketball at the end," said an incredulous Gordon. "It was like WWF or something. Wrestling.

"That whole team, they play physical. I don't know what to say about it. I just couldn't believe what was happening -- before the play even started, grabbing. It was crazy."

Said Clippers Coach Mike Dunleavy: "It's not easy when you've got Kobe, hand-to-hand combat. It's just part of the process."

Hahaha I love Eric Gordon :)

That's a compliment though. People used to say Lakers are too soft to take the Celtics in the finals, and that they got manhandled because Celtics were too physical. At least now we know they made the right adjustments.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

My sentiments exactly TCI. Laker fans should be glad comments are being made like this. It means the team is actually playing with physicality.

I would like to see them play like WWF for a whole game not only on the last possession when the game is on the line...

I dont see this is a compliment because that was only for 1 play. We need to play like this from the beginning to slow teams down and to show them that we mean business.
