Boozer :laugh:

Rules are rules...obviously no malicious intent, but it is what it is. Oh well. I like to see the emotion from him.

That's lame, he obviously didn't mean anything by it... He also grabbed the second official, shouldn't that be two games? :rolleyes:

He screams for everything. I don't know why you people don't understand that.

Sometimes, yeah, but it's reactionary to him, just like how it's reactionary for some players to stare down others after a dunk.

I just think some people take anything possible to lash out at him. That's who he is, and if you can't accept that then don't watch the ****ing games.

Like I said, reactionary. That's not going to change so why not just accept it? It's over the top sometimes, but I'm sure a lot of players scream. Singling out Boozer just isn't fair in my opinion.

Fatigue tends to happen when you play 4 games in 5 days, 3 of them being against top teams in the east (2 of them were tight until the end) and 1 of them coming down to the wire (ended on a Rose buzzer beater).

Double standard

But not really. The refs job is to diffuse and control things when they get out of hand. Not allowing them to touch players isn't necessary. While agree there wasn't much reason to touch KD, I think it's understandable why this "double standard" exists. It's not really a legit excuse.

Is it a double standard that cops are allowed to mace civilians, but I can't mace a cop? No. Same here...

I think his point was that KG didn't receive any suspension for his actions while Turk was suspended for doing less... Atleast I think that's what he meant.

Bingo

KG puts his hands on an official, even shoves his arm away, and nada.

Hedo places his hand on the ref's shoulder to talk, suspension.

Seems to me the league is protecting bigger names and teams.

My mistake. I thought you meant the ref deserved a suspension...

My guess is that Hedo initiated contact, and KG did not :shrug: IDK.

If Boozer wasn't a Bull you wouldn't say that.

If he wasn't a Bull, he wouldn't be getting the same **** he does now, now would he? I don't remember him getting so much hate on Utah. It goes both ways, bro.

KG was still more disrespectful towards the official though, even the ref himself took offence to KG forcefully removing his hands... The stars always get special treatment, it's just the way it is and the way it always has been.

to me he was just stupid, dumb play, but it didnt cost them the game, what I fould really dumb thoug was he kept touchting the officials even after the tech. he obviousy didnt learn.

Yeah. They're really different circumstances though, and I'm not sure they can be considered the same thing. KG's was more disrespectful I guess, because he was pushing the ref's arm out of the way...but he didn't go after the official or instigate it. It was in reaction to the ref contacting him forcefully. The ref was trying to diffuse the situation, pinned KG against whatever that thing is called, waved his finger in his face, then held onto him as he walked away. I almost can't blame KG for pushing the arm out of his way...but in no way was it OK. I'm sure, in the heat of things, I'd push him arm down too.

While Hedo's was not aggressive or ill-willed, he did go out of his way to make the contact. IDK. KG got a tech, and not a suspension. Oh well. I don't care. It is what it is. The two circumstances are clearly not at all alike. Hedo broke the rules, so I'm not gonna whine about something that happened a year ago like it means anything.

Also, I'm pretty sure this is a relatively new rule. Not even sure if it was a rule last year, but I can't find proof. I may very well be wrong. I know it is newish at the very least. Not a ton of precedence. I know Mike Brown got suspended for it this year as was The Lesser Lopez. But I can't remember suspensions prior to this year.

^Official suspsensions are new-ish. Players have never been allowed to touch the ref's but enforcing it with suspensions no matter what is new to this year

That official looked really pissed. I thought he was gonna try to fight KG for a second. :laugh2:

At least Garnett's touching was reactionary. Hedo pulled a seriously stupid move by putting his hands on the ref.

We're arguing semantics here, Hedo initiated, KG's was more disrectful, etc; one player shouldn't be suspended over the other just because of a technicality...
