Should the league take action? No.

Will they? I say yes. Stern is a classic micro manager on things like this.

What's embarrassing about this?

Joey Crawford is a tool. It's a joke.

I am not a Spurs fan, but that's brilliant!

Imagine the uproar if that was KG and Rondo?

Mk
If it were KG and Rondo, the media would attack them and call them out in a negative way.
I find it funny how the biased the media is towards certain players.

Personally I don't find what's so serious about it. It was Halloween and I bet they never thought the picture would leak through the media.
Stern will fine them though.

I always liked Timmy and Tony, and now I like 'em even more.
This is a joke with probably fake guns. What's the big deal?

Showing up to a Spurs Halloween party dressed as Joey Crawford? I say this guy had it coming.

It's a Halloween photo meant to be funny - and it's also not meant to be seen by the general public.  Talk to them, warn them against doing it again, but I don't think it deserves punishment.

While I don't really care and TD and Parker as classy as players can be in the NBA [especially Duncan], this will elicit some kind of fine and probably should. Guns pointed at a ref, even in jest, just isn't something the league is going to laugh about.

If it were somebody like Arenas doing this, then many would agree that action should definitely be taken. But I don't think you can take player reputations into account - no matter how positive they are.

this is being taken way too seriously.  they are having fun and it was halloween. it is obviously not to be taken seriously.

While I agree, I don't think the NBA will have that much of a sense of humor when it comes to the gun violence angle.

Agree with both posters here.

What's funny/ironic is that TD and Parker are 2 of the biggest class acts in the NBA and about to get fined for this pretty funny joke.

Funny as heck and we all know nothing would have happened to Wade or LeBron had they done it.   It's a league of favorites.

It's funny but they will probably get fined- which is understandable. I remember two members of the Australian swimming team were sent home after their event in the Olympics because they posed with guns in some photos in London.
People just overreact to this stuff so much and with the Joey Crawford character being shot by some actual NBA players? I know it's a joke but there are that many morons that will just be horrified at this, the NBA unfortunately MUST do something.
David Stern probably finds it funny too but he has to uphold a standard and set a solid precedent.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

Imagine the reaction if people thought Violet Palmer was biased against the Spurs/Duncan and someone was portraying her instead of Crawford in that picture.
