Ghettooh: Did Norris Cole Punch David West’s Marbles?
One of the more controversial plays from Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals was Norris Cole’s alleged shot to David West’s “midsection” (aka his hogg and marbles) that resulted in an offensive foul.
Slo-mo replays showed Cole stick his left arm between West’s legs as the Pacers big man attempted to force him out of bounds by sticking his leg out to take up space.
Although Cole may have made some contact with West’s hogg and marbles, it didn’t look intentional, as Cole was actually trying to wrap around West’s leg and got stuck in his nether region instead.
Either way, it was still suspecter than a mug.
