Lithuania, the country of basketball, is playing its finals these days between archrivals Zalgiris Kaunas and Lietuvos Rytas. It is not the simple result of the first game won by Rytas that is being discussed, however, but the once again unfair play of Arturas Jomantas.
It’s not like this is the first time that the Lithuanian forward is going for some nasty tricks on the court. A lot of people made him responsible for injuring Drew Nicholas in a Euroleague game this season. He has also been in some pinpricks with Zalgiris Marko Popovic before and is known for some strange type of in-game eateries.
But now in the first game of the finals in Lithuania, Jomantas went a bit too far in testing one of the most loved players here at BallinEurope, D.C. Collins. The YouTube clip has already reached Top 20 status in terms of “most discussed” today so we will go for our part too. This crochet-move by Jomantas was absolutely unnecessary and really, what did he want he to do with it? Hurt Collins? If so, he had to come up with more than just this little sidestep. He should have gone for something like this. But see for yourself.
