Hard Foul? Nope, Just Your Friendly Bear Hug

by Zettler Clay IV

In Thursday’s Celtics-Nets matchup in Brooklyn, Leandro Barbosa charges toward his hoop on a fast break. Keith Bogans is having none of that, so he does what any guard does in this situation. Put Barbosa in a sleeper hold. And he does this without accruing a flagrant foul.

This is some excellent technique from Bogans. MMA aspirants, take note.
