If you watch the video it looked like Dwight was just like "Oh ****" and put his hands up as a defense ha. Im not sticking up for him but its funny if you watch his face, and that they both fall.

I say if the NBA gave the fines to the actual players who got hurt then there would be MORE flops, which is something we want to avoid. :cheers:

Dude if your Dwight Howard you shouldnt have to push dude with two hands like that... if you call yourself superman act like it and take the charge lol. He did look like he was putting his arms up for protection though, but what got him was him pushing back instead of just covering himself.

I mean, that is a harsh fine, but it was a flagrant.

I don't think he should've been tossed from the for that foul period, so of course I'm going to think that this fine is utter rubbish.

Yah, I don't think it was a flagrant 2, more like a flagrant 1 if anything.

Oh well, no games missed aside from that one.

Good. He's an idiot anyways. I bet he signs with Orlando after this season. Ha

I was a little curious as to how that one would go down. I watched the play a few times. I'm not a Dwight fan really, but I gotta say, it didn't look like a big deal to me. It didn't come across as overtly intentional.

Wade's knee to the crotch looked very intentionaly to me on the other hand. I thought that was an appropiate repsonse by the league, but this seems perhaps excessive. If something isn't overtly intentional, I think it is unfair to fine a player unless they come out and say that something is intentional.
