good decisoin by the league, terrible decision by dwight. his elbows took two key players out of the lineup for the magic in game 6. what a bonehead.

Gurk 04-29-2009 04:35 PM

Yes. I like this decision by the league. WOOT

Acie 04-29-2009 04:41 PM

Yeah, I agree. Great decision.

I guess the Sixers won't have to bitch about him camping out in the lane then?

Dwight Howard suspended
Howard received a one-game ban for an elbow he swung at the head of 76ers center Samuel Dalembert in Tuesday's Game 5. (Courtney Lee is also out for Game 6 meaning the 76ers might have a chance to force a game 7).

Also, Rajon Rondo's hit to Brad Miller's face is "as stands". Not being upgraded to a flagrant foul.

Deserved. Glad the NBA isn't playing favourites. Source?

Well Orlando will lose game 6 and then play a game 7 in ORLANDO with a fully rested Howard.

not a big relief for philly.

Was it a good decision??? A vicious elbow to the back of somebody's head is only one game? what if it was a fist?

If Philly doesnt win without Dwight AND Lee out they should fold their team and move to St Louis. Its bad enough they cant even sell out playoff games anymore, pathetic.

i'm happy stern or stu jackson (or whoever the hell it was) had the balls to go ahead with the suspension.
D12's elbow was blatently obvious and was done on purpose.
he gets away with that shit all the time, i'm glad he's going to pay for it during the most important part of the season - playoffs.

if philly doesnt win this game.... wow.
