I don’t think I have ever seen more blatant actions before in trying to injure a player to take him out of a game. Â I have watched this video I am sending to you several times. Â Even thought Anthony hit his head on the young man’s knee, it seems to me he was pushed down first. He was pushed down on his shoulder by an LSU player. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
The second time when he was grabbed from the back by both shoulders makes me sick each time I see it. Â That LSU player went after him with the intention of hurting him. Â He had hate in his body language and on his face. Â I am glad he got thrown out of the game. Â I was surprised to see Cal run out on the floor the way he did. Â He was telling people to back off and I don’t know if they were trying to fight or he just wanted them to get away from Anthony. Â I was so impressed when Cal went over to Anthony and helped him up. Â It just makes me sick the way Kentucky players are being treated this year and no one is doing anything about it. Â Someone is going to get seriously hurt.
The third incident he was again pushed by pushing on Â the back of his head.
This is getting ridiculous. Â Maybe the coaches are not encouraging these actions but someone is putting the idea into their heads to stop Anthony any way they can and no matter the cost. Â I feel like the opposing players get together and make a pack amongst themselves to take Anthony out. Â They are jealous of him and his talent. Â They don’t want to lose and are trying to do anything they can not to lose. Â I do not think any of these 3 incidents today were accidents, especially the one where he was pulled down by his shoulders.
Anthony is such a good young man. Nothing ever bothers him, he does not lose his temper. He does something good, actually spectacular and heads back down the floor to continue his job. He doesn’t pump the air, pose or anything. He is there for one thing, to get a job done. It has been a long time since I have seen someone like him on a college floor. Â I also think Michael Kdd-Gilcrist has the same attitude.
I was especially proud of the young men today because they showed what sportsmanship is all about. Â None of them lost their temper. Â They all showed what truly good young men they are. Â it could have gotten out of hand so easily today. Â This has been a fun team to watch and I am happy that TJ is back in the game. Â Darius was spectacular today and it seems like if one is having an off day with shooting someone else steps up.
Seriously, today it looked to me every time Anthony went down it was from an LSU player doing something intentional to stop him and to take him out of the game with injuries.
