What other intents would someone have if you are trying to place your feet under another player???? Grabbing or reaching for the ball is one thing but tripping or making him land on his feet to cause injury is another........
The only reason you place your feet under another players when he is landing is to intentionally hurt him. Theres no way around that.........
Umm...actually..the ability of SIGHT has escaped you. He did not put his feet under Amare so that he would land awkwardly. He stepped on his heel much the same way children do in order to trip or slip the shoe off someone.
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK before you wrongly assess the situation.
TRIP HIM, FOUL HIM, MAKE HIM MISS THE SHOT. That's what most players will do when they're beat to the basket. Just because a player intentionally fouls, doesn't mean he's trying to intentionally injure someone.

Trip people is what most players do????? and Since when was tripping ok in basketball???? that was NOT an intentional foul, he didnt even try to foul him or make him miss the ball..... he went for his feet plain and simple....... you can come up with all the bullshit you want.......and i give a fuck about either team or either player i just dont like players playing dirty because they got beat........
p.s. its funny when people are wrong they try to take cheap shots to talk shit..... go step onto a basketball court and then come back and talk......
I wouldn't go so far as to say that in this particular case Bowen's intention was to "hurt" Amare.
It's one of those moves that he probably gets away with night in and night out without a) Being called on it and b) Anyone getting hurt
To my eyes (could be just me though), what Bowen did was try to disguise the fact that he was going for Amare's feet to throw his balance off so that he didn't make the shot. If that's what he was doing, then that tells me that this is something that he does all of the time.
It's hard to give Bowen the benefit of the doubt in a case like this when you see him do all of the other "pesky" stuff that is borderline dirty.
We all have that one friend who "plays too much". They're forever tapdancing on that line that is your comfort zone and every once in a while, they cross the line. Bruce Bowen is that guy on the basketball court.
Is Arizona full of little kids that do nothing but complain and call each other queers? I swear all I see from you and PHX Sun anytime someone says something slightly against the suns, "Fuck you homo" or "Queer". And I guess Sportscenter is gay too for showing the clip, huh? IDIOT
