Tony Allen, despite falling down from screen, received a kick from Kobe and isn’t happy about it.

RotoWorld: Tony Allen took eight stitches in his upper lip, and also said he suffered a neck injury in Game 3 thanks to Kobe Bryant’s foot.

Allen’s not sure how he hurt his lip, but says that Kobe kicked him while he was down in the fourth quarter. “I slipped and he actually kicked me in the neck,” Allen said. “That’s what he did. I ain’t too happy about that, neither. But he kicked me in my neck and it is what it is.”

Keep an eye on Allen and Kobe tonight, but the fact remains that it’s probably a good thing Kobe didn’t kick him in the knee, instead.

    Tony Allen shouldn’t stick his neck where it don’t belong then.

    Now, I know Kobe is capable of some superhuman feats on the basketball court, but to attempt a shot, with his concentration on the basket, and simultaneously aim a kick at the neck of an opponent, who is falling down at the time, well that takes God-like physical control plus the ability to look in two nearly opposite directions at once!
    Kobe is freakin’ AWESOME!!!!!!

      lol…..I told you before Graham…..if LeBron is king….Kobe is god!!

  • lakerman1

    Keep kicking them while they are down Kobe.

    In all seriousness, Kobe always kicks his leg out on fadeaways. How does a dude who is shooting a fallaway 3 around a screen have the mind to watch out for a dude falling down from the screen? Get real, it was an accident. It sounds like Tony Allen wants some payback… it’ll be interesting to see if there are any flagrant fouls tonight.

      I hope there is a flagrant, that will just fuel Kobe even more.

      These damn Celtics gets whinier and bitchier as the series goes on. What happened to that physical, tough guy demeanor?

    • 242LakerFan

      Come on, what are the odds of that?

  • BE_A_LakerFan

    Is this guy serious? What is wrong with the Celtdicks? They are always crying and over exaggerating. I think Doc Rivers is coaching them to act like b****s. The celtics are little boys.
    This has to stop. I hope we can pull out another win tonight and take all hope away from these clowns.

  • kwame4mvp

    That nigga is lucky he didn’t injure Kobe’s toe or something.

  • Marwan Marzina

    Well Tony, what was your neck doing on Kobe’s foot anyway? Its not like he decided to flunk the shot just to go Bruce Lee on you… Maybe Mbenga would.

    The sad thing is that if you watch that play, Allen flops under Kobe which is really dangerous. Kobe could have landed on him and hurt an ankle / knee.
    They have been doing it all series, getting underneath our shooters, it really is dirty and someone might get hurt. The only way they will win this series is by playing dirty; ie holding, grabbing, stepping under our shooters, going over the back. The fact that nothing is ever called on them for doing these things is ridiculous.

    • Day

      I think it’s funny though, he flops under Kobe with, what I think, the intention of malice ( having Kobe land on him and get hurt ) and he gets a foot in the neck. It serves him right, Karma is a b!tch.

  • KOSS

    KICK HIM AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    yeah fuck these cry baby cock suckers! fuckin pussy! they can’t even hang in the w.n.b.a let’s end this! and these miserable bastards! go lakers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • lakers2000

    It’s not Kobe’s fault. He was trying to kick their ass, not kick an ass! These guys are a bunch of bitches. I really hope we win it all on their floor!!!!! Kobe was just trying to show him his new shoes. Damn, they hot!!!

  • rb24

    You really think Kobe was looking down at TA while shooting a three ball just so he can make sure he kicks him in the neck. If any, that should have been a foul on TA for contact with a shooter. Stop whining TA and just playball.

  • KOBE THA MVP 10′

    he should be happy that it wuzn’t bruce bowen kick
