We went over this yesterday. Step one to not punching other players in the junk is simple — don’t punch them in the junk. I guess Nic Batum didn’t get the memo because holy smokes is that a serious nut punch.

Look how angry he looks. I’m on record as being against punching your opponents in the balls, but just let me make sure everyone knows that I am SUPER against looking this ferocious when you do it. It takes a bad situation and makes things way worse. This makes Fecundo Campazzo look gentle.

He had a reason though. From Adrian Wojnarowski:

“I wanted to give him a good reason to flop,” Batum said.

People have said that flopping has gotten out of hand, but I’m not sure they meant for players to take matters in to their own hands, literally. Though I will concede that a rogue nut-puncher traveling throughout the NBA would certainly be an effective policing strategy.

On the plus side, at least the All-Punched in the Nuts team finally has a point guard. Between La Bomba, Julius Hodge, Carmelo Anthony, Channing Frye and Chris Kaman, that’s a pretty solid team in this new world where punching opponents in the genitals is the cool thing to do. Not only are they complete, they’ve also learned to play though a nut punch. Looking forward to them uniting in the 2016 Olympics and taking home gold.

Just make sure to bring cups.

  1. meanwhile Facundo Campazzo, nic batum, chris paul, and tony skinn will be forming their own team of nut-punchers to take down team nut-punched

  2. The Spanish team deserved it, they were a disgrace to basketball today.

  3. Jail ball,baby.

  4. The spaniards have been a disgrace to basketball the whole tournament, but that is no reason to punch someone in the nuts

    • I disagree. It’s an excellent reason. You play dirty one way, I play another. Nothing wrong with that.

  5. I’m pretty sure I’d never punch a guy in the nuts over a basketball game (or anything else for that matter), but if you’re going to do it there are worse targets than a flopping flopper.

  6. I absolutely love what Batum did. It’s delicious. I want to put this as a wallpaper.

    Bitches deserve to get treated exactly like this. You flop? You want to cry around for touching you? At least let me give you a good reason to do it.

    Love it!

  7. “Bring extra heavy duty cups to Portland” – Clippers medical staff after watching this.

  8. I can’t believe nobody is mentoning Reggie Evans. He doesn’t even Punch hes just hardcore and grabs dem. Thats next level Nutcraking.

    • I hate Reggie Evans for the fact that he grabs people’s nuts, flops all the time, and makes babies cry when he shoots free throws.

  9. Seriously!!
    Run the score up, trash talk, but to try and injure someone even if he is a loser, that’s garbage

  10. I hate to condone violence, blah blah blah but I do here. The flopping was out of control. Spain flopped while they were in the penalty throughout the game. Rudy flew himself out of bounds on a supposed Batum nudge that gave Spain two critical free throws late in a close game. Rudy flopped himself into an unsportsmanlike foul on Ronny Turiaf! Ronny Turiaf! The guy has no shame if he’s flopping on Ronny Turiaf and making him out to be a thug.

    Batum was making out like a hockey enforcer and exacting a bit of retribution for how Spain disgraced the game. I can’t say I wouldn’t have liked to do the same.

  11. “This makes Fecundo Campazzo look gentle.”
    go fack yourself, USA. U got mr cheapshot poul on your team, shut the fack up.

    Navarro el Floppero deserved it, and yes, Batum is big time arschloch. Rudy is the other grand el Floppero, rolling over the floor every game.

    Of course the best way to hit them whould have been to win the freaking game, France.
