    Jeff Teague is a scum bag

    This wont get as much scrutiny as it honestly deserves but how the **** is this not suspendable? He literally tackled him at full speed and that is insanely dangerous for him/fans etc.

    Disagree. (1) thatís the first time heís done something like that. (2) Rubio embellished it a bit. (3) that game was poorly officiated.

    Not even 8 hours after the game ended. Lets see what the league does. Who says this is not :suspendable"

    I do. Rubio popped right up, sold it quite a bit. Teague has 0 history of things like this. Those refs were terrible and lost control of that game and let it get to this point. Heavy fine and move on.

    Yes. It's the refs fault.

    Just because he has 0 history of things like this doesn't mean he shouldn't get suspended. Rubio did buy it a bit and went a little out of control but again it wouldn't of gotten to that point if the refs did something from the start when the game was chippy all game.

    Yea. As soon as KAT got tossed (weak tossing BTW) the Wolves got very chippy and the refs did very little to calm that. So last night we saw KAT get tossed for calling for an and-1 (he was fouled); lack of foul calls to boil frustrations; Teague bumping Rubio; and Crowder and Thibs getting into it (with no ejection).

    I'm personally of the opinion that the refs are there to prevent all of this. And their swallowing the whistle let the Wovles get worked up. They let this game hit the point.

    But even outside the refs....I personally can't jump from "this guys hasn't pulled anything like this" to "he needs to be suspended" without a middle ground. It's why I think that flagrant 2 fouls need to have some set 1st offense, 2nd offense, etc structure.

    Didn't say it was their fault. Said they lost control of the game and let it get to this. That's something really different.

    It was a hard foul. Give him a tech or a flagrant 1 and move on. This league has gone so soft. Don't think it deserves a suspension.

    Overall the refs became the focal point of this game and ruined it. KAT should not have been ejected. They lost control of the game.

    I was already asleep by the time it happened. I hope he gets suspended, we are better with Tyus, sadly.

    The Wolves are funny. They had their heads up high all year, for some unknown reason, thinking they were so bad ***. Now they legit could miss the playoffs. I am not sure anymore about Towns becoming a top tier guy, I just don't see any focus on the defensive end.

    Teague isn't dirty, but he is chippy, without consistency. Meaning, he is the opposite of a physical player, so when he does things like this, it makes me wonder about him.

    Finally, I love Rubio. But he sells every single bump like Bruce Lee just unloaded on him. So take anything he does with a grain of salt. Huge drama queen.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Because they are considered little guys so of course it wont get as much as if a Green or big man do it, like the Green/Adams incident, if you think Teague is a scumbag then I would love to see how you feel about the actual cheats of the game in all sports, its not like it was Horry/Nash incident or when Shaq damn near paralyzed Stuckey

    Bird use to talk to much in game trash that could be looked at in a scum baggish way, its a reason why DrJ put them hands on him or whoever that player was but I think it was the Dr.

    I feel like Butler on this, with all the physicality being taken out by the influx of European jump/3pt shooters its nice to see some bulldog in the little guys still, CP3 plays the same way

    nowadays if you blow in the face of a player its reviewed for in a flagrant foul way, which is why I vouch for what Teague did, as I would have praised it if Rubio would have been the one delivering it to Teague, nothing more nor less, its called chippy basketball, nothing close to a malice in the palace or bad boys era brawl/foul

    The first time I watched it, I didn't think it was that bad. And I agree that Rubio tends to embellish contact pretty regularly. But watching it a few times, I'm starting to agree with OP's take. Rubio is running at damn near full speed, and Teague runs in and just throws a shoulder into him. It's the kind of thing a safety would do to push a wide receiver or running back out of bounds, but there's no room for that in the NBA.

    I don't mind a hard foul every once in a while, and I actually think we could use a few more hard fouls in the league today. But not in a situation like this. If a guy is going up for a layup or dunk and you want to prevent him from scoring? Go for it. This was not that. This was a dude running at full speed who just got shoved for no reason on the sideline into the seats. And it's hard to know, but it doesn't seem like Rubio is embellishing this very much at all.

    If the league suspended Teague for this, I'd be 100 percent OK with it.
