Default NBA word official: Artest suspended 7 games for incident vs the Thunder: Good or bad.

Its on our very own insidehoops. Please check it out.

Was this too harsh? Slap on the wrist?

What are your thoughts on the verdict?

wowwwwwwwww. so bad.
only this would happen to him.
I think 7 games is a little too much, should've been at least 2-3.

Lakers are going to have to step it up now. Maybe Jordan Hill will play more and take over more?

Nah, that depends on how Bynum and Pau are playing.

Ebanks is the guy you're going to be seeing a lot more.

This is a blessing in disguise. Ebanks just held his own against the best sf in the game today. His confidence should be at a high level and he knows he is every bit as athletic as Durant, if not more so. As such, he should know that his upside is tremendous and begin to play like it. I'm excited. I think he is gonna fit in perfect with Kobe and Sessions.

That's the NBA bowing to public pressure and trying to protect their image.....not that I blame them, it did look horrible.
I do not think it was intentional which is why I thought he would get less time, but given his past I guess it had to be done.

How funny would it be if the 1st round series went to a game 7 and Metta came back and won the game for us

I still think that Harden flopped and simulated a bit too much. I was praying for a shorter suspension.

I'm ok with it considering MWP was playing some good bball for us..Maybe we should look at it like this, rest time for the second round for MWP. A fresh MWP is going to be needed if we meet up with OKC in the second round.

Or a blessing for Ebanks holding things down and convincing Mike Brown to play him more, if he does a good job. Our bench will be the factor in presuit to a championship.

Let's go Bench players....time to earn your money. Sorry guys I'm not in Offseason mode yet..

Harden has a bad concussion, definitely no flop or fake I can't go there with you

Man not to look ahead, but when we face OKC in the second round our boys better be ready. I'm sure they wants to beat us down on their homecourt and the fans will be going crazy. Hope Bynum and Gasol better be beasting come the second round.

They will be waiting and ready, you can count on that.

To be honest fiddy, I would thought out until next year considering this was MWP. But, Harden didn't fake that flop....

Ron hit James "perfect" around the ear. that knocks you out, no question.
I expected a longer suspension and given his past (NBA criminal record) he should be content with 7 games. The Lakers should be able to get into the 2nd round without him.

What was Harden doing in the first place?

It looks like he is setting a back screen on Metta when his team
is taking the ball out of bounds... Why would he be setting
a screen at that point unless he was trying to get MWP to do
something stupid (which he did!!)?????

Bet he doesn't do it again!!
