Thomas Robinson failed in his attempt to murder Jonas Jerebko
Oh, you didn’t stay up to watch the Pistons-Kings last night? What a shame, because you missed one of the all-time dirtiest elbows in NBA history. Rookie Thomas Robinson sent a bo that caught Jonas Jerebko right underneath the chin. He immediately went down and stayed there for a solid minute before popping back up.
For his part, Robinson was immediately ejected and faces a probable suspension sometime today.
What caused him to basically lose his mind? We’re not sure. Having watched the replay a number of times, I guess you could say Jerebko got too close to his groin area on the waist grab. Still, seems like an awfully mean response to a little TLC.
