From http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=1928540:

  • Ron Artest - the season (wow!!!)
  • Stephen Jackson - 30 games
  • Jermaine O'Neal - 25 games
  • Ben Wallace - 6 games
  • Anthony Johnson - 5 games

    ...and a slew of others for leaving the bench during the initial on-court fracas.


  • I plan on living forever. So far, so good...

    I fully agree with the suspensions, there is no reason for these players to jump into the stands. They are PROFESSIONAL athletes and they are expected to act like PROFESSIONALS even when some losers in the crowd decide to cause problems.

    I think its about time that Stern and the NBA finally start coming down hard on actions like this. Maybe if they would take similar actions against all the blunt burners and wannabe gangsters, the NBA could actually turn back into a great game.

    Wow! looks like Stern was taking some notes from FIFA.

    IMO the suspensions were completely fair and deserved...there is no excuse for jumping into the crowd no matter what the circumstances are

    Yea! how ironic...two weeks ago he was moaning about how he wants a month off to promote his album, now he has an entire season  Big grin

    Artest will also lose 5.5 million on top of this. Then probly some civil lawsuits on top of that. I bet hes shittin himself for not paying attention in those anger management classes. lol

    My parents are at the Miami Heat game tonight...they have pretty good seats and they called and said the number of security guards there is way up...visibly noticeable from pre-Artestgate levels...

    I agree with the suspensions, however, neither side can go unpunished. I hope those fans involved in the fight get the heck prosecuted out of themselves also to demonstrate to both sides that excellent sportsmanship is paramount in professional sports (DUH!!!).

    I think part of the suspension on Artest was "accumulated" shit from all the crap he's done over the last few years. The NBA has fined him, suspended him, and warned him about his behavior, apperently the message hasn't gotten through that head of his, which, obviously is short one human brain.

    Too bad they didn't tell that jackass "you're gone for good ,and don't bother ever coming back." At the least I hope Indiana releases him at the end of the year. Despite his on-court talent, his off-court crap isn't worth the problem.

    One team that made out fantastically in this sad affair was the Cavaliers, who, going into today, were only a half game behind Indiana.

    Indiana, a favorite out of the East, is toast for this year, now.

    Hey the Pacers only lost by 3 points last night, remarkable seeing as they were playing with 6 players in total.  Laugh out loud

    Also means some more minutes for my man David Harrison...though whether he's physically capable of it is another story...

    I think its actually good for the NBA. I always hear my hockey buddies calling bball players pussies and what not, I think this can actually help the NBA. However I think the whole thing is stupid and the suspensions are worth it.

    There's NOTHING in this that is good, except with how quickly and decisively the NBA brass dealt with it. The rest of it, you can tell the Hockey idiots, who thinks fighting is a good thing in sports, to go watch an NHL game.

    The NHL needs to get rid of the violence, just as the other sports' too. I've always felt those jackasses who think that a brawl every time there's a hockey game is a good thing, need to get a life.

    I'm sure that the Pistons will be happy. If they can play decent ball, they should be able to get a huge lead on the Pacers.

    I'm pissed that Stephen Jackson didn't get tossed for the entire season as well. He looked like a Viking in a berserker rage in the stands!! Un-freaking believable. And the fact that Jermaine O'Neal assaulted a fan and isn't suspended for the season blows my mind as well.

    As for the fans, I hope some harsh punishments are brought on them as well. Many of them carried out assault and should be rightfully charged by law for their actions and dealt with.

    What a pathetic, pathetic scene this all is.

    Falcon, come on now bro. The ONLY good thing about Hockey is a brawl. Fighting is a part of the sport...like rioting, looting, killing, and plundering are part of Soccer.

    Maybe for the nuts out there, but I'd prefer the artistry of guys like Gretzky or Lemieux, crisp passing, great for checking. Screw the goon stuff.  Smile

    I agree partly with KROC as well. But the figthing has to stop before some one gets hurt like the Avs guy did last season.
    When things like that happens it's just not entertaining anymore.

    The problem here is that the NBA has too many talented-but-lazy, unprofessional, richer-than-ever thug divas unable to decide if they want to be athletes or hip-hop stars. All three of the Pacer players should have been banned for the entire season.
