I think Travis Outlaw gets off light here, this could have been a suspension in my book — hitting an airborne player with no play on the ball.

But the league in its wisdom has reviewed the above play from the Clippers win Saturday night over the Kings and decided Outlaw should get a $15,000 fine for “making excessive and unnecessary contact” with the Clippers’ J.J. Redick.  The referees on the court ruled this a flagrant 2 and Outlaw was ejected.

Redick was not injured on the play, but result and intent should not matter in handing out penalties.

    I used to Like Outlaw, what a POS move. Totally classless, I’d like to see once just once someone from the Clippers biting the bullet and taking the head off an opponent that takes a cheap shot like that in the future.

    no intent to injure. just a last second move when he was moving fast so he fell hard.

    def a flagrant but this is an overreaction.

    The only way to prevent potential catastrophic injury from a horrible foul like this is a lengthy suspension. Don’t be like the NHL and only consider a suspension after a guy is carted off on a stretcher.

    It’s a travesty that Outlaw is still in the NBA. This guy has no game and is a horror to watch.
