Default Stephen Jackson gets 1 game suspension

From Bonnell:

Jackson suspended 1 game

The NBA just announced it has suspended Charlotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson for Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Hornets. The league said Jackson verbally abused referees and failed to leave the court in a timely manner after being ejected in Milwaukee Saturday.
The suspension will cost Jackson over $100,000, based on his salary this season of about $8.4 million.

There goes our role model

I suppose we have to change our strategy in complaining.
Rather than let one person becoming an easy target for the ref, let's try "complain" with EVERYONE including assistant coaches.

MJ can join too if he wishes. We'll see if the refs show some "respect" for his airness.

we'll see if 20+ men on the court screaming at 1 ref will do the trick or not.
The refs can't issue 20 technicals at once can they?

I mean, look, I don't see why everyone's soooo surprised at this. In fact, we should all be counting our blessings it wasn't that big of a deal last year.

This is what the NBA has become - a bunch of complainers whining to the referees who control the game, rather than keep it civilized. And look, they said over the off season that the ref's were going to seriously crack down on people like this who complain waaaayyyyyy too much. My thought is, if you're as good as you think you are, make up for the stupid ref's mistakes by playing smarter and better basketball on the next possession and for the rest of the game.
