Rufflegate: CP3 'incensed' over Gasol head rub

At the end of the Lakers' win over the Clippers Wednesday night, Chris Paul and Pau Gasol got into a dispute, of sorts. Paul and Gasol exchanged some words, and then some more words, and then Gasol ... how can we put this? He ruffled Paul's head. You know, like you would the paper boy, if paper boys existed if papers still existed. Paul, to put it lightly, did not take it well. Here's the incident. 



And after the game, Paul was not at all letting it slide. From the Los Angeles Times, which describes Paul as "incensed" after the game: 

 

"I don't know if (Pau) has kids, but I'm not one of them."

This rivalry is going to be so much fun.

Gross overreaction by Paul, but at least he didn't go all Adrian Beltre on him. Beltre would've swung.

Rufflegate: CP3 'incensed' over Gasol head rub

Ok, I was watching this game last night. I'm a Laker fan so I'm admittedly biased. But, Chris Paul started this WHOLE thing by trying to take the ball from Pau after he was intentionally fouled. He didn't get the ball and I think Pau's hand might have grazed CP3's body during the incident. Then all of a sudden CP3 won't shut up the WHOOOOOLE way down to the foul line on the OTHER end of the court. I could hear him calling Pau soft and who is HE to call ANYONE soft. He misses games all the time every year while Pau has anchored a championship froncourt in L.A. CP3 needs to stop watching his own commercials. Don't believe the hype kid.

Matt Moore, we're into the fifth week of the NBA season now so how about writing and reporting some more important news like if the Pacers victory over the Bulls last night to end the perfect homecourt records that Indiana is a team worth taking more seriously.
Because the NBA has become a sideshow. Things like this and annual superstar-wanting-to-leave-town-and

-form-a-big-market-superteam-before

-his-contract-expires stories are far more interesting than the actual games.

The Pacers was humiliated by the Magic at home and went to Chicago and beat them the following night, now that is more of a story than Pau didn't like the idea that Paul don't find him rubbing his head is all that amusing.

Pau Gasol is an uglier version of a Llama
