I didn't see the game, and the incident wasn't shown on the highlights, but according to Korver, it really wasn't anything out of the ordinary.
"I didn't think it was that big a deal," Korver told the Associated Press on Saturday. I thought it was an offensive foul. After I saw it on replay, it looked a lot worse than I thought it was during the game. It all happens fast. It's no big deal. It's just part of the game."Personally, I don't think it would make much sense for the NBA to slap Kobe with another one game suspension; if the first two didn't teach him anything, the penalty has to be more severe this time around.
Update: The NBA has decided to retroactively assess Kobe Bryant with a flagrant foul for the elbow. It's his first of the year. I caught the highlight on television a few minutes ago; Kobe was coming off a screen with Korver trailing the play, and he seemed to get his hand tangled up. As he attempted to free himself, he struck Korver in the face with the elbow.
