Found March 15, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
Cavs’ Daniel Gibson weighed in on the Jones/Bryant controversy Friday, telling reporters that not only does he think Dahntay Jones is a dirty player who committed a dirty play, but also someone who he believes taught former Pacers teammate, Paul George, “a few tricks.” According to the Akron Beacon Journal: “I think that was a dirty play,” Gibson said. “He’s been known to be a guy to do that.” “If you watch the tape, after the shot was taken, he kept walking forward toward him,” Gibson said Friday. “He never really turned around to see if the shot went in or anything. He kept walking toward him looking at the ground the whole time.” “When I saw (Bryant’s injury), it (ticked) me off because (Jones) was on the team with Paul George last year,” Gibson said. “Rumor has it, he taught (George) a few tricks.”
