At the end of the Lakers and Clippers game on Wednesday night, the Clippers Chris Paul exhanged words with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol of the Lakers. Gasol ends up rubbing Paul's head, which Paul takes offense to and then Gasol shoves him aside. In his post game interview an aggrivated Paul says that "I don't do that" in regards to the touching of head. When reports asked Gasol what Paul was saying on the court, he simply replied "trash." Gasol further explains touching of the head "I do that all the time with my teammates, its okay, just like if I touch your shoulder or back." Um, no thanks Pau!
