On Sunday, a rooster tangoed with a Kok, and the Kok came away victorious.
What we’re talking about, of course, is new Los Angeles Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari fracturing his hand after delivering a blow to Netherlands forward Jito Kok. It may be the NBA dead season, but you better believe the Clippers Curse is alive and well — even in a supposed “international friendly”.

To provide further context to Gallo’s stupidity, Kok hit R/NBA to give his side of the incident:
That’s me getting hit right there. By the way there was no build up either, I do think I hit him on that box out tho. He wasn’t too happy with that
Kok on his face doing damage to Gallo’s hand:
Yeah it caught me off guard, I was actually just running to offense and the dude just swing at me. Lucky I didn’t fracture my cheek bone, he’s definitely worse off haha
He also addresses his inadvertent elbow during the box out:
Yeah looks like that’s what happened but I assure you that wasn’t intentional. And no there was nothing between us up until that moment, they were getting chewed out by their coach though because we kept the game pretty close till the end. Probably just frustration on his part
