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.

Then if Players would be allowed to do all of this stuff unbridled the players would be accused of being classless 'Street Thugs' Especially with the bias against younger players today.

The League has learned from the Rudy T incident/others. They don't won't to see anythng like that happen again.

It's the right thing for the long term health & overall image of the league.

It was the right thing to do. If they had let it go, then all the later players who hit other players would use this scene as precedent not to get fined during their appeal. League can't afford that right now.

What he did warrants a fine, although as a Suns fan it's nice to see (Although what Howard did was worse)/

Saying Dwight out for game 6 is the worst thing that could have happened to the Sixers because he's going to be "fired up" for game 7 is the dumbest thing I ever heard.

Uhh...you do know that if he was playing there might not be a game 7 right? Not saying that there definitely is one now.

I'm not saying anything about the odds of a road team actually taking game 7. What I am saying is what EVERY analyst will say, that anyone can get hot in game 7.

And for the record, I don't know how hard it is, and I'm sure neither do you unless you've been in the situation, not to attack you, but let's be real here. They are going to play game 7 if the Sixers win game 6, if and when that becomes a reality, everything else is up to lady luck bro

Regardless of the outcome, Philly will be back next year, I will be ECSTATIC to see Nelson return to the court as he is a local product and I'm sure we'll see a better series as well

Superman got suspended? But he's superman is he not?

Yea, that looked pretty deliberate. I think 1 is light. It looks like it will be 3-3 and game 7 make final decision.

He deserved it. And I'm glad to see the league had the balls to suspend him.

Why would anyone on the Celtics ever get suspended. They win 1/3 of their games off bull**** calls or pure luck.

If the refs called a foul on Dalembert for pushing Dwight in the back, the elbow would of never happened.

Shoving someone in their back is not even allowed in the NFL.

Agreed. Doesn't excuse the elbow though. Although I thought it was more of a warning elbow than anything from Dwight. I don't think he meant to connect with the head. Obviously he just clipped him or Dalembert would have been seeing stars.
