UPDATED: Nowitzki's Flagrant Foul Gets Him A One Game Suspension
 
Hmm .... perfect timing by T-Mac. Whining because of Dirk's foul on AK47 and wants him suspended. Why its perfecting time on McGrady's behalf? Rockets play Dallas tomorrow night. :cwm34:

The Mavericks take on McGrady and the Rockets on Thursday.

Mcgrady is still a top 20 player. And he's right. I usually dont like guys being suspended unless its absolutely hainous or clearly intentional and trying to injure a guy, but what Dirk did to AK was clearly an attempt to hurt him. I mean he wrapped his arm around his neck and threw him to the ground in mid air. Comeon.

mcgrady is still better then any player we have when healthy on both ends of the court. He is the best raptor ever imo :0

And he was right, that foul was ridiculous, obviously it serves Tmac well to have him suspended but seriously he should be, thats how u really hurt ppl, if that was Ford instead of AK47 he's probably crippled.

BLASPHEMY .... that accolade is reserved for Muggsy Bogues. ;)

He certainly wasn't the best Raptor while he was here. And if it's the best former Rap to blossom elsewhere I'd take Billups over him 10 out of 10 times.

Well, apparently Dirk got that suspension. :(
