So they downgrade Terry's foul, even though he started the entire thing by pushing Blake, but suspend Barnes?

Man, this league is pussified. Just let the game be and move on. No one should be suspended. Haywood and Blake should never have been ejected.

Maybe if the Dallas assistant coach would have not tried to put Barnes in an extended bear hug his ass would not have been pushed off.

Barnes deserved to be ejected for pushing Terry, just as Terry deserved it for pushing Blake....but a suspension? Lame.

Meh, expected this.. the assistant coach thing was probably the deciding factor, he landed on a lady sitting courtside and she got kinda hurt supposedly.

JT got away clean...where NBA Amazing Riggin happens. I wonder how much JT paid Stern for this. JT was the instigator, he should be suspended and fined.

And what about Terry??? That coach shouldn't even have had his hands Barnes. He was already walking away and that guy wouldn't let go.

So wait, Barnes gets suspended for sticking up for his teammate, Bynum got suspended for TWO GAMES for throwing an elbow, but Terry gets...nothing for shoving a defenseless player to the ground as he is running out of bounds?

What a freaking joke. Seriously.

Mavericks assistant coach Terry Stotts wrapped his arms around Barnes from behind in an attempt to calm him down. Barnes responded by shoving Stotts to the floor, saying after the game that he didn't know who was grabbing him.

"One of their coaches grabbed Matt," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "That's not what you do. You grab your own players. That's kind of the rule of the game."

There should never be a reason why a team's opposing staff should ever put their hands on the other team's players.


Mavericks asst. coach shouldnt have held onto Barnes at all.


Im shocked that Terry gets away with absolutely nothing here. Seems a bit ridiculous considering how eager the league is to suspend players left and right.

NBA should suspend itself without pay for being blind AND bias.

Just like Phil said, Why in the hell is that assistant coach instigating Barnes by bear hugging him, and not letting go? Barnes first tried to brush the coaches arms off of him, but the coach was relentless trying to wrap up Barnes. Matt was not even looking at who was holding him, he just wanted him off.

What a freaking joke. Seriously.

Erick Dampier shoved Tony Parker from behind while he was going up for a lay up. It was much worse than last night.

Dampier was only fined 10k.

It's not unusual.

The NBA hates the Lakers. David Stern is anti-Kobe, and anti-Laker
