Nicolas Batum Punches Juan Carlos Navarro In His Man Parts

The craziest thing about Nicolas Batum punching Juan Carlos Navarro in the nuts, which seems to be the complete opposite of what the embodiment of the Olympics is about. Is that when Batum was asked why he did it by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, he responded “I wanted to give him a good reason to flop.”

While this seems a little overboard, I’d gladly welcome it into the league if it would deter flopping. Call me an extremist if you will, but in my experience the threat of a shot to the nuts tends to keep one very, very honest.
