After an extremely unpredictable 2007 Playoffs, the only thing guaranteed in this year's NBA Finals is that Bruce Bowen is going to try and castrate LeBron James. In honor of this Spur's grisly tactics, we have compiled a list of Bowen's Dirrtiest Hits.
Apologies to Amare Stoudemire for not making this list - we're sure you will be on it shortly.
Cue the Christina Aguilera music and enjoy...
5. Kicking Ray Allen in the back
Bowen has dealt out much more pain to Ray Allen but this is just comical how blatantly childish this is.
4. Stepping on Steve Francis
A staple of the Bruce Bowen defense, here he steps on Steve Francis' foot while he comes down from a jump shot. Bowen is so dirty he doesn't even realize when he is doing the other team a favor, such as in this case.
3. Undercutting Vince Carter
As if it isn't enough to try and take out Vinsanity's knees, Bowen has the audicity to give the Tim Duncan shit-eating-grin afterward while complaining to the refs. How does Vince not pop Bowen here???
2. Kneeing Steve Nash in the nuts
If it was anyone else in the league aside from Bowen or Chris Wilcox, you probably give them the benefit of the doubt on this one. But given Bruce Bowen's history, this is 100% intentional.
1. Kicking Wally World in the face
You don't think Wally was happy when he got shipped to the Eastern Conference? Nothing pisses off Bruce "Lee" more than a pretty boy with short, spikey hair - except for childhood obesity, of course.
At some point this series, a Cavalier is going to have to step up and do what no one else has been willing to do - take a swing at Bowen and police the game themselves since the referees won't.
Our nomination is Bad Boy wanna-be Drew Gooden and his ducktail...
