After getting a one-game suspension for trying to stomp Chris Paul's gonads, Spurs hitman Bruce Bowen has once again been forced to defend himself from accusations that he's a dirty player and constantly bitching about foul calls against him.
"When people think of me, all they think about is, 'He's dirty,'" Bowen said… "I'm a Christian… Sometimes when we feel like we're wrongfully accused, you have to look at it as people we try to emulate our lives after were wrongfully accused. It's about how you handle that, more than anything else."
Oooh, I can only hope Bowen's trying to emulate holy men like Girolamo Savonarola! He was hung from a cross by a chain and burned in public.
[T]he burning took several hours, and… the remains were several times broken apart and mixed with brushwood so that not the slightest piece could be later recovered.
And Bowen even plays in Texas! That's the only state in the Union that still allows public burning.
