Chris Paul Didn’t Like Pau Gasol Touching His Hair

Pau Gasol and Chris Paul got into it a little bit at the end of tonight’s Lakers/Clippers game, a game which the Lakers won, 96-91. And like the cool kid hyping up his not-as-cool friend, Kobe Bryant was chirping in Pau’s ear all the way.

RELATED: Why did Gasol do this? Well, maybe he just kind of…hates Paul.

It all started near the end of regulation, with the game already decided. Paul approached Gasol, who had just been fouled, and tried to knock the ball out of his hands. Players sometimes do that when they’re frustrated. A seemingly amused Gasol then offered up the ball, and when Paul refused, Gasol little brother’d him, trying to play with his hair/tap him on the head, a demeaning thing to do to another guy (particularly when you’re a foot taller than that other guy, and there’s a bunch of people watching). CP3, as one would assume, did not take the attempted punking lightly.

Lakers and Clippers sure looked like an actual rivalry tonight. Video of Pau and Paul’s almost-confrontation, here.

    Awww.. Did Gasol just treat CP3 like the little bitch he is?

    What an idiot, Chris Paul. Pau Gasol 2 times NBA winner and World Champion with Spain Team… Just shut up, midget.

    chris paul has always been a punk.

    Chris Paul hit Julius Hodge in the nuts in college- refs didn’t catch it, but his coach suspended him for a game, which it turned out, was a rematch in the ACC tournament. State won big in that game, and CP3 has been labeled a punk forever after.

    Pau Gasol was just touching his head in a friendly manner. same as waht he did on his team mates while they were doing well. Chris paul is just a piece of punck that thinks what pau is intimidating. come on chris paul he is a good guy.,ur such a sore loser.,

  • Dennisescobedo

  • pausneckbeardtrimmings

    Friendly manner my a**.  Pau deserved a swift chop to his neck beard.

  • Dirk

    Hodge was an ever bigger punk than Paul, so I didn’t mind when that happened.

  • Jokill

    Sounds like some prissy Laker fans on here. Pau deserved to get slapped for that.

    Find it interesting that Kobe goes over and gets in the middle of things to “defend” Gasol after he sees the whole thing unfolding from the corner, yet none of the Clippers players even go over to help Paul out…I’ve always thought he was a punk (was always partial to D. Williams)…I feel like his whole nice guy thing is an act.

    chris paul is a racist punk ever since he was in high school and wake forest.
