As long as you’re not Kevin Garnett, Stu Jackson probably had discipline for you this weekend

New Official NBA Ball Unveiled

The NBA today fined Doc Rivers $15,000 for failing to leave the court in a “timely manner” following his ejection from the Suns game last Friday. Josh Smith was fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture in the Hawks’ fracas-filled game against New York Friday. The fines come a day after Jackson suspended both Marvin Williams and Shawne Williams for fighting.

I want to make sure you guys have kept up with the attitudes of the league in regards to discipline this weekend. Here’s a little test. You ready?

Wish of the following are worthy of advanced punishment from the league’s front office?

If you guessed E., congratulations! You’re a sensible person who understands the league’s need to take a hard, but even stance. Unfortunately, you are wrong. Now you’ll never get into college! Better take some pills to help you study.

If you guessed F., congratulations! You’re in tune with the National Basketball Association’s policy regarding punishment! You’re now qualified to ignore the person being robbed at gunpoint while giving citations to jaywalkers. Happy Sunday!

It’s possible that Jackson is waiting to make a further decision on Garnett’s incident, and a fine could be coming shortly. It’s hard to imagine what he could be waiting for before making a decision, though.

In completely unrelated news, the Lakers and Celtics tip off today at 3:30 p.m. EST. Kidding!

UPDATE: Stu Jackson has just fined the author of this post $15,000 just because. He also fined your mother $10k for looking at him funny.

      But the playoff game wasn’t big enough not to suspend the Suns for walking 2 steps onto the court a few years ago?

    Get over it! you are full of crap. he could easily argue that groin hit was inadvertent and anybody who watched the replay knows that/I was watching the game when the play occurred and they didn’t even call it a flagrant foul on the play. Find something else to whine about.
