The Nuggets' Kenneth Faried is a fiery guy, known by many as the team's emotional leader. So with him team suddenly down 3-1 to the Golden State Warriors in their first-round playoff series, it wouldn't be surprising if Faried wanted to give some teammates a swift kick in the pants. But after Sunday night's postgame display, he may not need to kick any butts -- we now see what kind of wrath his size 16 shoe can unleash. After Denver's 115-101 Game 4 loss on the road, Faried reportedly kicked a hole in the visitor's locker room, lighting up both the drywall and Twitter.

Kenneth Faried said he kicked this hole in the locker room wall after Nuggets loss: twitter.com/nuggetsnews/st... -- Benjamin Hochman (@nuggetsnews) April 29, 2013 What's more, Faried missed the first game of the series with a left ankle injury. So did the big man let the emotions get the best of him and did he kick the wall with the bad wheel? Either he doesn't know, or he ain't telling. Asked if he kicked it with his ailing left foot (ankle injury), a frustrated Faried said, "I don't know. I just kicked it." -- Sam Amick (@sam_amick) April 29, 2013 But one thing Faried did prove on Sunday night is his social media and Web acumen. After his kick, he asked a reporter to Google somebody else's infamous postgame run-in with inanimate objects: Surreal postgame moment: Faried asking me to Google Amare Stoudemire's infamous fire-hydrant punch b/c we disagreed about when it happened -- Sam Amick (@sam_amick) April 29, 2013 Let's hope Faried doesn't Google the success rate of teams facing 3-1 series deficits.
