If anything that would have made it less likely. There was no point of giving the 2 T's, and ejecting him if they were going to suspend him anyway.

Don't see why he should get suspended. He was already ejected in the game and picked up 2 technicals. If he gets 7 technicals than he will be suspended. No need to give 2 T's and give a suspension. Give one or the other, not both.

So what your saying is that in a late game situation where a player already has 1 T he can elbow ppl in the face, grab another T, and just play the next game?
:speechless::speechless::speechless::speechless::s peechless::speechless:

Garnett knew they were gonna win the game which is why he didn't really care. Do you know how many people would throw elbows like that if they couldn't get suspended for it?

I remember an elbow ariza threw at DeRozan. He didn't even connect with the elbow and he got suspended.

Garnett's punishment should be worse.

KG is classless. He is a pariah in the league and now that his skills are diminishing he is using unsportsmanlike behaviour to try to impose his will on the game.

He put Q Rich's health in jeopardy when he swung the elbow, he put his own future in the series in jeopardy when he swung that elbow (which has now come to fruition, as he has been suspended) and worst of all he embarrassed the game. Celtics fans should be angry at him, not supporting him. His actions have removed him from competition. Time to reap what is sown.

I fully agree with the KG suspension, he broke the rules, now he has to pay the penalty.

But after watching this replay at least 10 times, I'm annoyed that QUEENtin only got a 25K fine. He instigated the whole thing, if he stays away like he should, none of this happens. He has a bad history with Pierce and you know he was only going over there to pour salt in the wound. Queentin is definitely the classless act here, KG was sticking up for a teammate and lost his composure. But Richardson just proved he's a piece of **** like most people know already, except of course, for Stu Jackson.

It's the elbow that got him suspended. The NBA has always maintained that an elbow thrown at another player is unsportsmanlike and deserves a suspension. I disagree with anyone who claims that back in the day this would not have received a suspension--yes things were grittier back then but there was never a time when a player was allowed to throw elbows at the head of another player. It's unsportsmanlike, it is outside the scope of the game and competition. It's classless. It's disgusting. It's violent. Anywhere outside of the arena it's criminal.

Also, there is a discrepancy in the application of logic from Celts fans in this case. The reasoning, reduced to simplified form is this:

1) KG talks trash and that is intensity and wanting it more than anyone else on the floor, it's what you want on your team.

2) Q Rich talks trash and it's classless and terrible and he's a piece of ****.

Yeah, and it's everyone else who is hating, not Celts fans.

There is a difference between talking trash and talking trash over the top of an injured player and directing it at that player. Its night vs day.

Two things:

First- you say the NBA has maintained that an elbow thrown is unsportsmanlike and warrants a suspension, well the NBA also maintains that players who leave the bench during an altercation get a suspension. But I guess they can just overlook that cause it's not convenient, right?

Second-Q Rich talks trash and it's classless and terrible and he's a piece of **** cause of the circumstances. Trash talk is fine, but that was way more unsportsman than the elbow.

The elbow shouldn't have happened, and KG is suspended- time to move on; but the Heat players, namely Q Rich and anyone who left the bench, should also be suspended.

On the first paragraph:

See Amare, Spurs-Suns. They do maintain that rule--it couldn't possibly be enforced in this case because the altercation took place on the bench. That's silliness.

On the second paragraph:

Q Rich talking trash is terrible, I agree, but so is it when KG does it. Now, as to the circumstances, I think that if he supposedly said get out a wheelchair that there is some evidence of that. See game 1, 2008 finals series during the wheel-chair incident and Pierce's subsequent return less than two minutes of game time later. Also, it turns out Pierce wasn't injured, so Q Rich's trash talk actually turns out to be truth-talk. But we're in agreement--KG and Q Rich are both classless idiots.

As to your final points, I suggest you put your thoughts into a strongly worded letter and fire it off to Stu Jackson.

If you think QRich should be suspended for trash talking, how many games do you think Garnett would be able to make it through? I would give an over/under of 10 for the entire season, not the playoffs.

Garnett threw and connected an elbow to the head. It is in the rule book that it is a 1 game suspension. So yea, I think it is fair. And I am guessing that only Celtics fans think that this isn't fair.

I diasagree with the suspension. Getting throw out was fine IMO. If that elbow is going to be the standard for the playoffs then what about alot worse things that are going happen. Because its the playoffs and there are going to be more physical altertactions, that could definatly get more heated then that. Are people going to get suspended 4, 5 games during the playoffs. Becuase setting the line as this is 1 game is pretty soft IMO.

I never said Q Rich should be suspended for talking trash, but rather because he instigated the whole thing. And Garnetts mouth is getting tiresome, just not in this instance as he was looking after a teammate

Garnett threw up his elbow while being pulled back by Heat players, and didn't look as deliberate as many are making it out to be.

So getting tossed with 40 seconds left is really a good enough punishment? If so get ready for a lot worse than an elbow late in the game.

Pierce instigated the whole thing because he faked an injury in front of the Heat bench and stayed there for an extra amount of time, preventing play from going on and killing the Heat's momentum. So, KG, Q-Rich, and Pierce should be suspended. Fair?

If someone continually acts on the court he is going to get called out for it sooner or later. Just get over it and accept it for what it is.

Amen, I'm a diehard C's fan too and I agree KG got what he deserved. But Queentin deserved more than just a 25K fine, why not toss him a suspension for instigating? That would be justice as this whole mess never happens if he stays away from where Pierce was down. But I guess we'll never get justice when Stern and Jackson don't have the balls to do what is right.

Thats kinda my point though. There most likley will be worse altercations then what we saw last night. Things will get more and more heated and mor physical. We can definatly see alot of worse things then what we saw last night IMO. And if KGs elbow warranted one game, other things should warrant 3, or 4 or 5 games, and to me in the playoffs that is most likley to much.

Rafer Alston got one game last year for slaping House. (Hysterical by the way) I agree with that one game suspension. But I dont think that those 2 things are equal. So if KGs elbow was 1 game, then if something like Alston situation happened it would have to be at least 2, which IMO is to much. Thats all Im saying. Playoffs get heated. And with KGs being the first suspension, it could easily set the standard moving foward. So if that was one game, what is going to happen going foward?

Pierce instigated the whole thing because he faked an injury in front of the Heat bench and stayed there for an extra amount of time, preventing play from going on and killing the Heat's momentum. So, KG, Q-Rich, and Pierce should be suspended. Fair?

lol fail.

Pierce aggreviated an injury he got about a month back, in which he pump faked and a guy came down right on his right shoulder. It's a stinger, nobody intended to hurt PP but he aggreviated his shoulder injury and fell down. Might have been trying to draw a foul or whatever. However QRich is a moron, he says in his own quotes "I have no buisness talking to Paul Pierce". Well no crap then why go over and start popping off? He instigated it. Had that been DWade who has known to fall hard and stay down at times and KG went over to talk trash he would be villafied as a thug, trash, POS, and every name in the book. If QRich stood up for DWade he would be a hero, I find this thread and the hate towards KG to be hilarious. The guy is a great player (although a shell of himself), great warrior and intense of a player as I've ever seen.

KG Got suspended, and in the letter of the law it was warranted. QRich IMO needs to get something more then a fine as he instigated the whole situation. I just hope the C's give an open lane to QRich and he somehow eats another elbow, or PP drops 40 on him and tells him about it all game.

Q does not deserve to get suspended becasue he was not the one throwing elbows, He got a tech and a 25k fine which IMO its fair.

If anything that would have made it less likely. There was no point of giving the 2 T's, and ejecting him if they were going to suspend him anyway.




Link for the suspension http://www.chicagobreakingsports.com/2010/04/bostons-garnett-suspended-1-game-for-fight.html

They didn't know he was going to get suspended at the time.. Garnett's behavior led to Garnett getting the T's and then being jettisoned from the game.. Then there's the usual league posturing and review and then the suspension.. Bottom line Garnett is a thug and his ego got the best of him and now it's going to cost his team.. So Bravo KG you really showed everybody..

What the hell are you talking about, it was in front of your bench...Q should be able to go over to his bench if he wanted to...KG needs to stop acting like a ***** before someone really knocks his ******** out ...(JO, beasley, probably even Chalmers if he wanted to)

Just think JB. An official cannot decide whether or not to hand out technicals based on what he perceives could possibly become a suspension. What if no suspension is given? Then your plan is a joke. The official has to give the just punishment during the game and if the action was particularly serious, then a suspension will be handed out. It has been like this for a long time. Also, a game that is already over and the star player being ejected isn't any sort of punishment which is why a suspension would be the only way to give out a just punishment.

Blame Artest.

No. If anyone, blame Kermit Washington.

Also, there were suspensions handed out in the "old NBA." I guess people just forget.

Good thing Boston is better on the road then at home. If Boston wins game 2 it might be a sweep.

You can't suspend Q Rich just for instigating. Fact is, even if he did instigate, he still did not throw an elbow to someone's face like KG did, it's very different.

I thought it was just. Garnett shouldn't have thrown the elbow in the first place. It was a vicious elbow to the face, he deserved the a suspension and the game.

Vicious huh? A dog gnawing your leg off is vicious. KG elbowing a chipmunk is just an elbow

Anyone see Garnett's comments about how he was sending a message that he's got their backs no matter what? LoL good luck getting their back while watching the game from Danny Ainge's house! He also commented on how the elbow was unitentional...I mean really KG?! Unintentionally throwing your elbow behind you with force? LoL at least own up to it. What a sap.

There is a difference between talking trash and talking trash over the top of an injured player and directing it at that player. Its night vs day.

No it isn't. Specially when the guy on the floor is acting injured & using the time to get his old decrepit body the rest it needs, & not get a technical for delay of game.:facepalm:

im a celtics fan and i think kg deserved the suspension, how do you explain dwight getting one and kg not? but qrich deserves a suspension also, he instigated the entire thing and he even admitted as much

Isn't that what they do in kindergarten?:confused:


BUT TEACHER HE STARTED IT!:cry::cry::cry:

Amen, I'm a diehard C's fan too and I agree KG got what he deserved. But Queentin deserved more than just a 25K fine, why not toss him a suspension for instigating? That would be justice as this whole mess never happens if he stays away from where Pierce was down. But I guess we'll never get justice when Stern and Jackson don't have the balls to do what is right.



If Pierce wouldn't have been resting in front of the heat bench where Q was going to inbound the ball it would have never happend either. So Pierce should retire from basketball, & work on broadway, & star in blue men.:speechless:

Used to have so much respect for KG but its nearly gone these past 3 years after the way he acts. Success makes certain players heads too big I guess.

The official word is: Your respect means nothing. KG doesn't care about your opinion according to his spokesman. Don't blame the messenger Blame it on the alcohol.

Really dissapointed in the NBA for making that call. Richardson was grabbing his jersey and Lebron merely wanted to get the guy off him, and that's why he wasn't looking when he threw the bow. The NBA suspends who they want to suspend, Kobe or Lebron would have got nothing......

I think they got a different image of him myself because Minny wasn't on TV as much without League Pass.

He has gotten to be slightly more of a dick now, but he was a dick then as well. The difference was that in Minny people remember him as the guy who did the John Thompson I just want to win interview with tears in his eyes as opposed to the big bad wolf he is now because Boston naturally gets more coverage.

Too bad CP4 taking the 1st plane out of Toronto.

On a serious note, Kobe was making it rain with those elbows last season, League didn't suspend him. Its the pressure from the lobbyist Group(AKA espn) in the league office that got KG suspended. An elbow is An elbow, Right? Those dam lobbyist.

Above the shoulders. KG got called for an over the shoulders elbow. He still gets away with all those elbows he gives with every screen he sets as they are all illegal to begin with.

The post was hilarious though because it said Bron threw the elbow and got suspended for it but Kobe and Lebron wouldn't get suspended for throwing a bow. KG wasn't mentioned in it which was a brain fart by the guy who typed it.

Magloire came off his bench to start grabbing people and got nothing.

Q started it all and got only a fine.

That's what Pierce gets for faking another injury, may have cost them HCA (although I still think the Celts will win Game 2).
