Kobe Bryant Commits Flagrant Foul On Kenneth Faried, Nuggets' Rookie Looks Dazed Afterwards

This was a scary moment for Denver Nuggets fans. Talented rookie Kenneth Faried surged in on a fast break on the left side of the court, and Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant went up to try to contest his shot, or at least commit a playoff foul and make Faried hit two free throws. Because Faried is Faried, he elevated much higher in the air than Bryant. That caused this to happen.


Now, Bryant was technically making a play for the ball, but by swinging his arm out, he nailed Faried in the head, which explained the flagrant foul call. Faried then fell pretty hard on the ground, and when he looked up, he looked like this.

That's scary. It should be noted that Faried is still in the game, so maybe he's OK. But at first glance, that does not look good.
