Default Re: Dwight Howard suspended, can't play in Magic-76ers Game 6

Dwight obviously pulls that elbow away from Dalembert, it looks like more of a warning shot; also, Dalembert is obviously elbowing Dwight in the back and then pushes him. I think if there was going to be a punishment it should have been an ejection at that point. A later punishment after looking at replays is poor judgement by the NBA.

P.S. In the old NBA, this type of play was an every game occurrence for Karl Malone and he was never penalized in any way. New NBA rules are too soft.
