Singularity Posted November 20, 2004 Share Posted November 20, 2004 Ron Artest should have been called for a flagrant foul. Ben Wallace should be suspended for 5 games for his retaliation against Ron Artest after the foul. Ron Artest should be suspended 10 games for going after the fan in the stands. Stephen Jackson should be suspended for 20 games for being a complete goon. EDIT: When I saw the recording originally I thought it was Stephen Jackson that punched the Piston fan on the court but it was actually Jermaine O'Neal. JO should receive a 10 game suspension and Stephen Jackson should receive a 10 game suspension as well. The fan that threw the cup at Artest should be charged with some sort of misdemeanor and banned for the remainder of the season for attending NBA games. The fans that came onto the court and appeared to confront Artest should be treated the same way. The NBA and its venues need to institute some zero tolerance policies regarding fan behavior. It was fan behavior that caused this situation to spiral out of control. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
