Carmelo Anthony's Supsension?
« on: January 09, 2013, 06:22:45 PM »
When Rondo got suspended for "the bump" the NBA only took them 1 day to make a decision. Literally 1 day.

Why aren't there any news of Carmelo getting some kind of fine or suspension, or is the league gonna turn a blind eye on this?

Now, I don't expect the league (ran by dictator stern) to give Carmelo more than 2 days of suspension. That's because 1) The Knicks is his favorite team. 2) Carmelo is an MVP candidate. 3) It's bad for his "business".

But some kind of action must be done, a warning, or a fine.

Anyone else feel the same?

I don't think Melo should be suspended, but he should certainly receive a fine.  Going after players after games (heck, even during the game, when he was like, "I'll see you after this") isn't a good idea.

That kind of conduct is not only dangerous to opposing players, but also to the league's image as a whole.

I agree - especially after viewing the vid on the blog main page.

Carmelo Anthony basically lied when he said that nothing happened.

KG did, too - BUT:

KG wasn't the aggressor, here - Melo was. It was Melo that decided to go wait by the Celtics' bus.

Just WOW.

Kind of smug too. He's saying he doesnt expect anything will happen.

I feel torn because I really like Melo as a player, I always thought he was Paul Pierce 2.0, still do.
But yeah.

"If you just go off the actual facts of what happened, I don't think anything will happen," Anthony said after practice Wednesday at the Knicks' training facility in Greenburgh. "But I am pretty sure they are going to be calling me just protocol, that's the league's security protocol. When they do, we'll handle it but they haven't so far."

Yeah, I don't think there should be a suspension, but a fine. A huge YES.

Something needs to happen, and this is going to put stern to the test.

He has suspended guys for less (Rondo) or doing something similar (Cousins).  Then on the flipside, he fine Pop for sitting his players on a national TNT game.

Guess who's next game happens to be on TNT tomorrow.  HoneyNutCheerios and the Knicks.

So now does Stern do the right thing and fine and suspend Carmella for what he did regardless of the fact that the next game is on TNT, that all the pre-game discussion will be about the suspension, and that he is essentially benching one of his "stars" on national TV game even after he fined Pop for sitting his stars.

It's an interesting predicament old stern has gotten himself into and you know that he is going to ultimately do nothing or simply hand out a fine after tomorrows game. I've always liked stern, but this may be what finally sways me into believing that stern just does what he wants to do.

Wow, I stand corrected. Stern did the right thing, regardless of the press the NBA will get tomorrow on a nationally televised game.  Good job.  My waivering respect for stern remains intact.

Pacers. They will likely lose as a result of being Melo-less.
