Chocolate satan strikes again.
I really don't understand. Didn't Perkins and Randolph have a confrontation after a game in the locker rooms but no suspensions were given out? How is this any different?
I hope Melo learn something from this suspension. If he gets 2 more techs he'll serve another. The Bulls game is a big game for us Friday.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 18-1 Signature of a Champion!
ELI MANNING.... 2X SB MVP....2X SB CHAMPION!
I really think he should consider appealing this. Hard for me to believe he wouldn't win it.
Yep appeal it. I kind of think the league did this just as a technicality. They can't maintain it if precident has already been set and they did nothing.
My man Ike got a bad rap
Cant go chasing down other players. this isnt A Rap concert. his suspension was warranted. if this was LeBron getting suspended, you all would be screaming YES
****ing **** ********
Seriously doubt it gets appealed..Melo will probably just want it over. NBA does not want its stars acting like this regardless of the situation. While I certainly understand Melo going off, People in the public are held to a higher standard like it or not.
The fact that there was a video did not help..... but I will say something needs to be done about KG's BS... he has really past the point of just talking trash about basketball..when it gets personal
I'm gonna post this here too cause seems like more people are talking about it in this thread:
No video evidence plasted all over every media outlet = basically no proof. NBA has to go by the book with these suspensions or the lawyers of the Players Union would be on their ***. Its almost like being proven guilty in a court room. Melo wouldn't have gotten suspended if there was no video evidence that he stalked him down aggressively trying to fight.
I also think this wasn't all the mutual. ZBo and Perkins went to fight each other. KG was in the lockeroom, C's and their coaches and security obviously denied him so he talked him down to the bus, and tried to start a fight in a spot he wasn't supposed to be, and KG was doing absolutely nothing wrong until confronted.
You can't get suspended for talking ****. You can for stalking someone down twice after a game and trying to start a fight with video evidence.
We should be happy it was only a game.
The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:
"This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē
i understand melo suspension here, but the league needs to talk to KG.
