Ahem. Remember how I said that hockey was getting to be too tame, and how basketball has more fights than hockey these days?!
Well, this is a perfect example. Check out the video of the brawl at Madison Square Garden between the Rangers and the Avalanche... wait, check that. It's the Knicks and Nuggets that duked it out and humiliated themselves and the NBA.
And here's the dirt on the suspensions. Seven players get suspensions with Carmelo Anthony out for 15 games. Each team fined half a million dollars! David Stern is mad as heck. The suspensions all came down today.
This is happening way too often to this National Basketball Association. Remember not too long ago when the Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers got into that huge brawl that involved those fans?! I wouldn't go near an NBA game, for fear that I might unwittingly get involved in a fight. This league is a personal injury lawsuit waiting to happen.
At least they're doing something about these players and suspending people, which is more than I can say for the National. Football. League. Terrell Owens spit on another player in that game the other night. but is the league ever gonna stop him? No. Give the NBA credit for doing something--- or trying to do something, because it just seems as if these suspensions are kind of futile. They never seem to work!
