Besides his gritty no holds barred play, I have come to love the fact that the Pistons Jonas Jerebko doesn’t back down…ever. Remember when he was suspended for the first game of the year for that little altercation? It was a sign to come that this Bad Boy will put up a fight if he has to.
When this came across my screen all I could do was smile. Amare (who tends to get frustrated when he doesn’t get his way) decides to throw the ball Jerebkos’ way and “play it” like he was trying to throw the ball off Jonas to keep control of the ball. The refs weren’t having it, and neither was Jonas.
During the slow-mo clip look at JJ’s face and what he says to Amare. I can’t read his lips, but I can tell that if he had to he would have stepped in the ring with Stoudemire.
