You think Larry Bird was happy not to get to face Magic in the 86 finals because the Rockets beat an injured Lakers team? I doubt he was happy getting to steamroll an obviously inferior team.

A fan who isn't a loser would want their team to be able to beat their competition with all of its personel being healthy and/or available.

Get off your high horse you dooshbag. That might be acceptable in the regular season (I still say no even then), but if we lose we go home. If you need a bit of luck, so be it. Real fan or not, I'm happy and will be perfectly fine with it when we win Game 6. This isn't phucking highschool basketball, idiot.

Yeah I see that point as well. But as the poster below you stated, it's no excuse. The correct call would have been for the ref to call the foul on Delembert and eject howard for the elbow.

The refs also need to be more dilligent about calling those types of fouls too. Delembert was not boxing out or using any technique that is in the game of basketball. He was straight up pushing him with two hands. Had that happened on the playground (where hard play is the norm), he would've been punched. Too many players result to MMA when it comes to stopping Dwight Howard from getting a rebound.

This suspension certainly makes this series more entertaining. This could be like the Cavs/Wiz rivalry of old.

it was brian grant, and he also knocked out one of his teeth.
