I think the refs messed up by not tossing him and now he is suspended cause of it. If he would have been tossed I doubt he would be suspended a game. I hope the NBA takes action on the refs as well.

But back to the play, Birdman was totally in the wrong.

seems like the front office always overturns ref calls even when they go through it in replay.

No way they could've let him off after the precedent was set in Chicago. He should've got kicked out but Tyler didn't flop.

i think it was a make up for the terrible call during the game. they set the tone with Nazr ejection, so this suspension basically was used to uphold that n show that this will not be tolerated.

I think if he was tossed it would have ended with that. He didn't throw a punch. Granted his play should have been a flagrant 2 though.

Yea I have no issues with this. His own stupidity really. This is professional basketball...Respect the game and stop acting like a child.

I was pretty vocal when it happened to James and am going to be here... I would have ejected him and suspended him because there is no room for this in Basketball.

It is, and due to the refs getting it wrong. But again it doesn't mean he should have been stupid and did that.

I actually didn't see this coming because of who he pushed. The league has to protect guys like Hansborough though, he's the type of guy who could end up really hurt in a game if someone doesn't like his antics.

Agreed. I actually wish they would be more stern with things like this over stupidity alone. I do not like this and want guys suspended longer. To many freak accidents could happen over a guy being stupid... If Lebron falls wrong he could pull something and now this. I want harder punishments and am glad they suspended him....He should say sorry to every one of his teammates for being a dumbarse as well

it's unfortunate he lost his cool. i think this might open up some minutes for rashard lewis and mike miller though. i've been kinda hoping to see them get some action with battier and allen struggling with the 3, and while lewis isn't a good rebounder at least he's 6'10 and miller can rebound well for his position and brings it whenever he is on the court. unfortunately it probably allows joel anthony some time as well though, and birdman will be missed in this game no matter what.

I don't think Andersen is to blame for anything. Miami fans should be thanking Andersen for stepping up when Bosh/Wade haven't. He's been the most energetic player in that team since the big three era. It was stupid of him but as a fan, that was exactly what we needed. Pacers tried pushing Miami Heat around but during Chicago, it really strengthened this team. Now all we need to win is for Wade/Bosh to step up.

Matter.

^^hahaha I love how people are saying that only now because Anderson is suspended will there be a game 7. Forget about the fact that the pacers play better at home, Stephenson and Hill definitely play better at home. The Pacers were the favorite in game 6 even with Anderson playing. This doesn't change anything. All it means is that there will be less drama on the court between West/Tyler and Birdman. Birdman did not change the outcome of game 6 at all

Conspiracy.

Anyways, looks like the good call. There is no reason he shouldn't have been ejected considering it was the same thing that was done to LeBron. But the suspension works as well.

Anyone know if they took away Tyler's T away too? That was bogus.

Because Andersen - not LeBron, is the reason Miami won. Okay, hope you go to sleep feeling that.

It's ridiculous how the league wants to control flopping but in order for the refs to make the correct judgement, as in this case, you need to flop.

I hate this because it's soft. I hate that nazr got thrown out and ejected for a shove


But nba wanted to set a precedent with nazr to protect the nbas biggest star. So the nba now has to follow precedent they set by suspending the enforcer of the Miami heat


I don't have a problem with it since there following there own precedent But I still think it's soft and neither nazr or birdman were suspendable

Now your putting words in my mouth. I never said that Andersen was the reason they won and not Lebron. Obviously Lebron was the MVP of that game especially in the 3rd quarter. Just saying that the refs didn't eject him when they had the chance which was to Miami's favor and now the league is suspending him for game 6 at Indiana which is to the Pacers favor. I then hinted at possibility of them extending the series to generate more revenue. Don't know when I really attacked Lebron in that particular post. A bit sensitive are we?

You're implying Miami won because Andersen wasn't ejected in game 5 so Miami can win. You're further stating that Andersen was suspended for game 6 so Pacers will win that one and therefore leading to a game 7. 1+1=2. To simplify, you're saying Pacers will beat Miami because Andersen is suspended for game 6. Please edit your post if that's not what you intended to prove. Chris Andersen has been spectacular, but to say he's going to make a huge difference? I mean c'mon, stop with your conspiracies already.

Andersen's situation was much more intense than Muhammed. Andersen deserved it but he should've been ejected that game.

andersen was a non-factor last night.

the pacers dodged a bullet because of that. the heat didn't need him last night and really contributed negligibly during the second half of the game. i'm not even sure he played at all in the 3rd quarter.

but they very well could need his presence tomorrow. i'm sure the pacers are secretly happy it worked out like this.

Uhh saying your a Heat fan doesn't help your case... If anything it hurts your case.

And Anderson fully deserved to get kicked out, but does getting suspended really make all that much of a difference rather then getting kicked out in the first quarter of a game?

He pushed the guy from behind, how the hell does he just walk away with no punishment after that? And than he pushes the guy again once he gets up. You just can't do that as a professional basketball player trying to help your team win. He will be missed, but it's his fault for being a complete dumbass.

Just saw the play for the first time. Strange that Andersen went after Hansborough without being sure who did it. He should have been tossed for the initial hit. Hansborough shoulda stayed down and held his neck. That woulda got him the boot for sure.

I think if he did it to Paul George, it might have been different. They would have just said it was retaliatory.

This will turn out to be good for miami as far as defending roy hibbert i believe. Anderson has been getting abused 1 on 1 against hibbert because he has been backing off of him a tad in the post hoping to block his shot and he didnt come close and he was getting torched.

Joel is the best low post defender we have and he did good against Hibbert last year so we shall see how he does nad i think he improves us defensively.

andersen's playing time while hibbert is on the court.

game 1: 18 minutes - about 9 minutes when Hibbert was on the court
game 2: 15 minutes - about 10 minutes when Hibbert was on the court
game 3: 22 minutes - about 13 minutes when Hibbert was on the court
game 4: 19 minutes - about 11 minutes when Hibbert was on the court
game 5: 18 minutes - about 12 minutes when hibbert was on the court

game 5 notes: anderson came in with 1 second left in the 3rd. he was not a part of that huge run at all.


so, we're talking about ~10 minutes of common playing time a game. the heat i'm sure can figure out ways to cope with the time anderson is in there with mahinmi, which is about 8-9 minutes a game.


andersen's loss is significant, but i don't think it's earth-shattering. bosh will have to play a few minutes, but he's only playing about 32 this series, so they can expand his role a little with ease. haslem is playing about 21 minutes a game, so i'm sure they'll expand his minutes a bit too.

i don't think anthony is the answer. yes, he can handle hibbert's size adequately, but he's a detriment offensively and he's not even a good rebounder. might as well just defend him during those ~10 minutes they had andersen in there like they defend him the other ~30 minutes he's on the court.

i think they can survive andersen's loss without bringing in anthony, and for the sake of the heat they better hope they don't have to bring in anthony.
