I just saw video of the celtics and hawks incident on espn. They reported that there will be no suspensions after the altercation. Here is a link to the article:
and a quick summary of the incident:
"The confrontation started when Garnett cleared out Zaza Pachulia with an elbow, and the Hawks forward went forehead-to-forehead with the Celtics star. A referee grabbed Garnett, but he, too, got a push as Garnett struggled to break free."
What do you all think about this? I saw the video and KG clearly shoves off a ref and Perkins and Marvin Williams clearly step onto the floor. Shouldnt all 3 be suspended, since Stern always follows "the letter of the law"? I am sure Pheonix thinks so, its not like they ammended the rule last offseason. Besides, even if you let the guys stepping off the bench slide(which I think is very appropriate), KG still pushed a ref. Isnt that worthy of a suspension in itself?
