Clippers point guard Chris Paul was minding his own business, just driving down the lane during Monday's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, when suddenly his left cheek was introduced to the left shin of Memphis guard Tony Allen.
Allen was ejected from the game after being called for a Flagrant 2 foul.
Allen apologized to Paul after the game via Twitter:
1st thing 1st apologies 2 @CP3 accidental kick.....— Tony Allen (@aa000G9) November 19, 2013
We'll take his word for it, but it doesn't seem all that accidental when you watch the replay above.
