Default Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson get suspended

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2936623

Quote:
Stephen Jackson and Ron Artest have been suspended seven games without pay by the NBA for recent scrapes with the law, the league announced Saturday.

Jackson, of the Golden State Warriors, was suspended for pleading guilty to criminal recklessness in Indiana, while Artest was suspended for pleading no contest to spousal abuse.

Both suspensions will begin with the first game of the 2007-08 NBA regular season.

Its ironic that neither suspension is even related to the brawl. Talk about repeat offenders.

Kings should try to trade Artest...He should just retire, because he is a waist of time and money...

Wow, Artest gets screwed once again.

The whole problem with his wife was blown way out of proportion and now he's getting 7 game for it

This is a case of the league being unnecessarily harsh on a guy who has a bad rep.
