Good, he deserved it. If anything 1 game is on the light side as punishments go for deliberately elbowing a guy in the face.

as sad as it is...He deserved it.

He could potentially mess up his teams chance of advancing.

When Karl Malone elbowed Steve Nash in the face, did he get a suspension? I'm just asking because I don't really remember.

That aint the first time he's done something dirty either, but hopefully he'll learn from this and never do it again. He's too much of a rolemodel and superstar to be pulling this shlt anyways.

KG's actions against the Hawks last year was worse. Predictably, he didn't get suspended.

This is absolutely huge and it probably guarantees a game 7.

League is really sending a message by suspending a superstar for something like this, basically letting everyone know they don't give a damn who does what, if it's illegal according to the rulebook you'll pay the consequences.

They only got cheap-shot Rob for two games for clotheslining Nash.
