Ron Artest was suspended for the rest of the season – 73 games – for his part in the brawl on Saturday night.
That’s going to cost him $5 million. Whoo! That’s one expensive temper. Steve Jackson was suspended for 30 games and Jermaine O’Neal for 25. If you want to play in the NBA, the Pacers are probably holding tryouts today. So much for the Pacer’s season.
You think this is the result of the NBA cultivating a thug culture? Or maybe it was just the result of the NBA’s plan of trying to capture the NHL audience going tragically awry.
