I wish he'd just stop it and go for the damn rebound, or get back on D. They ain't gonna call on a fading jumper from 25 feet, even if you DID get touched on the elbow.

Excellent points, GOBB.

The league needs some consistency on this crap.

Maybe the league doesn't suspend Mutombo because they're afraid that, if he gives an interview with his thoughts on the suspension, all the knives that he's had in his throat for the last 15 years will come flying out and cut people.

The guy sounds like he had a steaknife omelet for breakfast.

Mutombo is an equal opportunity elbower. He takes out his own players as well as opponents.

Kobe elbows only seem to happen when he gets his shot blocked in crucial situations.

See your boy in the above photo.



And i recall Stu saying he was gonna warn Bruce Bowen about the way he defended a player shooting a jumper and let him know he has to adjust/change his actions. Soon after he said that a couple weeks go by and BOOM, Bruce strikes again. No action. I guess no one sent Stu the videotape.

Whatever.

I believe the next time they played each other, he knocked TMac out of the game.

Oh so since he evened the odds then his suspension is witheld. Makes a ton of sense.

That's pretty lame he gets suspended, although it was clear he did it intentionally.

As has been said, I can see them calling a tech or an offensive foul (since they're clearly ignoring the defensive contact on these plays).

A suspension seems a little overboard - he's clearly throwing his arm to draw contact, but both times this has happened Kobe's obviously focused on the basket, not aiming at the defenders face.

Anyway, since this is how they're going to call it apparently, he'll just have to adjust.

Yet more evidence of the refs coddling Kobe....

Refs didn't issue the suspension, the league did.

Does any other player have two seperate suspensions this season?

this is BS. Other players do much worse and don't get suspended. Didn't Bron do something shortly after Kobe's first suspension?

Anyway if you watch laker gams with any regularity you'll know he does this a lot. It's almost a habit to the point of becoming a reflex for him. If the league wants him to stop they should just tell him to adjust with a warning as opposed to suspending the guy.

No, this is evidence of the refs coddling Kobe.

Wasn't even touched. He's made a habit of this and now he's starting to injure players. I'm all for the league trying to clean this crap up. It's ridiculous. He should have gotten 3 games for stupidity alone.

True, but it's the refs making a judgment call that draws the league's attention. Two judgment calls really, one to ignore the defensive contact and another to whistle Kobe for the offensive. If there's a no-call on the play, highly doubtful he gets suspended.
