Delly takes down Bradley Beal and is ejected

It was hard, but no malice is my take. Does nothing though to overturn his reputation...

He got up right away. Stop being a little bitch and just play the game. No malice.

Might not have been malice but it was an awful play and one he shouldn't have made.

Totally no a basketball defensive move, not stance. He set it up to put 2 hands on the player and it all went wrong from there. Ejection is the start of what should be a suspension.

I'm not sure "he got up straight away" is much of an excuse. It was dangerous and should be discouraged. If you can't stop the play without playing like that, don't stop it.

Selwood would have received a free kick.

I love Delly but that was shithouse! Still, doesn't hurt his rep at all, the fact a lot of the multimillionaires are scared of being hurt by him is one of his assets in the NBA!

So...

How many NBA players are NOT multimillionaires? Delly must also be scared of himself under that logic.

Point taken. "A lot of..."

how many times do you see deliberate stopping of players at the end of games to get ball possession, plenty are way worse than that hell he could use the excuse he was breaking his fall lol get up princess and grow a pair ,women are tougher than that

If you play social ball and got fouled like this by some scrub footy player, you'd be royally pissed. Dirty play.

I don't think grabbing someone around the shoulders is a normal play, and I haven't seen much worse than that.

He wasn't breaking the fall. He caused the fall.

All exacerbated because he flubbed the plan by rushing to the wrong spot and then having to grapple awkwardly at a guy rushing in the other direction.

Dangerous foul and he was rightly ejected.

As Isaac said above, if you can't stop the play without doing something like that, then don't stop the play. Worse still, he didn't *need* to stop the play - Bledsoe and Snell were right there.

I have disagreed with labeling some of his plays as dirty in the past, but this doesn't help his reputation at all.

Eject him for now sloppy and weak attempt at defense it was. Malicious or not it was an ugly play.

One on one with adeptly to the bucket, I wonder how many people pull the ball up from now on or opt for the three.

He has the right coach for no grudge to be held against him for it.

I thought it was average, obviously just a badly used technique or a brain fade, not malicious but looked worse than it probably was.

He will cop his whack and be back like it never happened, all good in my book, especially since no injury surfaced from it!

Lucky that nothing serious came as a result of a coat hanger.
BrainFade maybe but dirty tactic which in other games, may have resulted in an all in tussle

Of all the allegations against Delly of reckless play this one is the least defensible as an authentic play at the ball or genuine basketball technique. I'm a bit disappointed he has stooped to such a thing, which will go a long way towards getting him characterised in the Bruce Bowen category (if he is not there already).
