A few lousy contracts are still out there – Tyrus Thomas for example – but the new CBA has helped for the future – shorter deals, smaller $ and the yet-to-be-used stretch provision.

Wow.

Ron has seriously paid of Stern's house by now. That was crap. Ron getting into box out position and catches Faried flying into his elbow. He wasn't looking. He wasn't aiming.

What a ton of s***.

But I guess that's what he gets for past transgressions.

Metta has a different rule book it seems.

I hate the entire "Flagrant foul" rule in the first place..... and I especially hate the retroactive nature of how it is enforced from time to time.

I seem to remember a certain Commissioner explaining how he was going to use a similar system to stop the premeditated cheating known as flopping this year. You notice that only a couple scrubs have gotten any notice from the league office while the entire Clippers team still doesn't the same baiting, posing and primping as last year? Chris Paul's entire game disgusts me because of it..... yet, as the worst perpetrator in the league, he's given a free pass.

What did we learn here?..... Chris Paul makes the league money and brings popularity to a sad franchise..... MWP is a second level player that cost the league credibility a number of years ago and is still being punished.

Pretty frustrating act on the league's part. I can think of several events more egregious than this that went unnoticed, unreviewed and all together overlooked. It is annoying when the League can't be consistent about this sort of thing and seriously wavers my interest in the sport overall. The game itself is still beautiful and amazing, but the more this kind of thing happens the less I like the NBA as an organization.

I think I was reading Kevin Ding's Twitter before anything came down at all form the league office & he mentioned that MWP might receive some sort of punishment. I'm just glad they didn't suspend him...

Ron should really just show up at Stern's house & beat the crap out of him when he retires. He had to change his entire game because of Stern's little vendetta.
