Sports clip o' the day: Chris Paul gets kicked in the face


Flexibility is a key physical attribute for players in every sport, but apparently it's incredibly useful in the NBA.

Poor Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers drove to the basket last night, but before he could get a shot off he was kicked in the face by Grizzlies' star defender Tony Allen.

Allen claims it was an accidental kick to Paul's face, but he was ejected from the game anyway.

Both Paul and Allen were named to the All-NBA Defensive First Team last season.
