Should have been more than 1 game, but at least he did get suspended.

Pshh, Ray deserves at least another game. It was a blatant elbow to the balls and Andy really didnt do much for him to react that way. I guess he just hates Brazillians.

From the looks of the replay it didn't look as if he was aiming for the groin. It looked like he just threw an elbow and it ended up hitting him there.

Yeah, but why would he throw an elbow in the first place, especially when kneeling on the floor? I'm really confused as to why Allen actually did it.

Glad the NBA took action against Ray for that. That hit was completely uncalled for. He could've got in his face and punched him like a man instead throwing an elbow to his sack as a woman would. The suspension should be worse, but at least Stern did something about it.

Why would you elbow upwards when you are on your knees and a dudes waist is right there at your head? Seems like it hit too perfectly to be accidental

He deserves more. Melo got what like 10 games for sucker punching some Knick.

An elbow to then nuts hurts a lot more >>>>>>>>>>>>> a punch in the face

Maybe if Andy backed up, held his nuts, pointed angrily at Ray, fell down like he fainted, and rolled on the floor, then maybe Ray would've gotten more than 1.

Yes that was you Amare

Funny Andy won't flop when its real
