Stern = hypocrite??

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:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs2008/news/story?id=3374218

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?
