The NBA reduced the flagrant foul, penalty two assessed to Rockets guard Ron Artest on Friday to a penalty one, eliminating any chance that he could be suspended for Sunday’s Game 4 against the Lakers.

Artest fouled the Lakers’ Pau Gasol in the last minute of the Rockets’ loss on Friday and was ejected from a second consecutive game. NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson reviewed the video on Saturday and reduced the penalty.

Yep.

That wasn't even a flag 1. That was good hard nose playoffs foul by Artest. You could make a case, Artest went for Pau head. But, that's just good hard playoffs foul.


The leauge is weak!

The game was over(Just as the mele in Detroit was). No need in starting another brawl over a unnecassry foul or getting another Player injured.

some of you need to stop *****ing...it is what it is.. When you're a top team of course u get away with more, its always been that way.

How was michael Jordan not suspended when he choked reggie miller in the mid 90's.

just the way things are when you got the juice

Not really a flagrant one either, but AT LEAST they try to fix their blatant mistakes instead of just ignoring them, like giving Kobe a flagrant one and this. Now if only they can get the calls right DURING THE GAME.

yeah it was a bad call. Funny how jim rome was saying (after the kobe elbow ejection), well ron artest should know that the officials are going to throw him out just to make sure the situation doesnt escalate. WTF. Not a ron fan, but that was ridiculous. oh uh, its ron artest, i better through him out just in case.
