Do I think that incident warrants a suspension? hell no, the NBA is not a girly game. That was literally nothing. All I'm saying is that Ron KNOWS he will be punished for the slightest of any actions but he is too stupid to keep his hands away it seems.

I'm not even sure if i want him to stop :man10:

We need an edge on this team and sometimes an wsge will backfire. We have the league's best enforcer. No one will mess with our enforcer. The problem is sometimes this can happen. If it wasn't for howard being out this wouldn't be that big of a deal.

It's as weak a suspension I've seen, only thing worse was Kobe's "unnatural basketball act". But, that's Ron's reputation, he can't do anything like this or he'll be punished, fair or not. He gets tangled up like that with guys far too often, hands up around guys necks and faces. He just needs to knock it off and walk away from now on if he has it in him, because guys will try and start stuff to get him kicked out if he's that easy to trigger. It's weak, but the NBA is weak now, that's how it is. As far as him being our enforcer, that's fine, just keep the hands away from necks and faces, he always seems to want to put his hands all over dudes faces and shove them.

^ church. Unfortunately, I don't even think he meant to hit him.

Knight had his arms wrapped up so he was trying to wrestle his hands out of a lock and ended up inadvertently hitting him in the face. Players are going to take advantage of Ron's rep and make it sound worse than it was. :bang:

LMAO
2. January 4, 2003: Suspended three games for throwing a television monitor and smashing an HD camera, which was a relatively new (and expensive) item in those days. Here is a link to the game story I wrote that night at Madison Square Garden.


Officials with the cable network said the camera's lens alone was worth about $60,000.

This makes me think of the time this season when Durant threw down Ron by the neck area when we beat OKC at our place.

Not even a flagrant or video replay.

Morris playing again makes me want to vomit, hopefully they throw Ebanks out there and see what he feels like doing for the 5 minutes either of them will play.

Morris provides energy and some defense so I don't mind him on Deron Williams even though offensively he can't do much.

No surprise, Antawn Jamison will start in place of Metta World Suspension. #Lakers


Jamison on Reggie Evans, not too bad but hes gotta keep him off the boards

The article said he grabbed Knight around the neck and struck him in the jaw. Like this:

You also have to worry about where it happened. This incident happened in the Palace, the place where his major incident took place. They don't care what Ron says, he can still blow up at any given moment and they do not want the Palace incident 2.0 occurring.

Shame on me, but I hoped MWP got a punishment to teach him a lesson that what he did hurt the team; walk away from the incident and don't flail your arms up acting innocent, just turn around and walk. Just wished that it was some other time and not against a team like the Nets.

Call me crazy, but I don't hate the idea of Morris in the starting lineup. Hear me out :man10: .

Morris has to be relegated to a spot up shooter or off ball slasher (as his finishing around the rim has improved). Kobe and Nash have to facilitate, NOT Morris. We have needed a floor spacer and a SF that can create his own shot. Well, Morris is a pretty good spot up shooter and defender, and Kobe is obviously a SF that can create his own shot and distribute. Metta has been a nightmare offensively unless he has one of his hot shooting nights. Maybe put Meeks at the starting SG instead of Morris. Some principal. Nash, Kobe, or Blake will facilitate because Morris and Meeks can't and shouldn't.

Nash/Blake
Morris/Meeks/Kobe
Kobe/Metta
Clark/Jamison
Gasol/Sacre

Yeah but IMO this had a lot more to do with the fact that it's Ron Artest. We've all seen worse things go without suspensions or even flagrant foul calls..
