  1. Will the new CBA give David Stern less power to punish players?

    Nov 30, 2011, 6:53 PM EST

    Ron Artest Parade

    TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott suspects that it might: David Stern has more than a little power, which is especially clear when players really break the rules. After the unrestrained brawl known as “the Auburn Hills incident,” for example, the fortunes of the Pacers and Pistons franchises and several players hung in the balance. Were there hearings…

    The NBA has announced that Lakers center Andrew Bynum will be suspended for the first five games of the regular season for his flying elbow shot to Mavericks guard J.J.

    Matt Barnes

    UPDATE 10:42 pm: Lakers coach Phil Jackson spoke about Barnes and said it’s all good to come to the aid of a teammate, but you better know the situation. “He’s definitely got to check that stuff at the door in the playoffs,” Jackson said. “You can’t play short-handed in the playoffs.” Asked if he was…

    Juwan Howard Melee

    The fallout from Wednesday’s Heat-Wizards fracas that led to three ejections and a one-game suspension for John Wall continues. According to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Heat forward plans to appeal the $35,000 fine he received for pushing JaVale McGee after John Wall and Zyrundas Ilgauskas were both issued flagrant-2 fouls: “I…

    The league has announced that Wizards guard John Wall will be suspended one game for his role in an altercation that caused Wall, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Juwan Howard to all be ejected from Wednesday’s Wizards-Heat game. Here is the league’s statement on the matter: Wall has been suspended for his Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two, whichincluded…

  6. Kevin Garnett won’t be suspended for hitting Channing Frye in the junk, because that makes sense

    Jan 29, 2011, 5:42 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Boston Celtics

    Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports that Kevin Garnett will not be suspended for tapping Channing Frye in the groin area Friday night. I’m sorry, what? Look, I get that Channing Frye probably sold this thing a little, and then popped up awful quick. And I understand that Garnett is a major star in a…

  7. Marvin Williams and Shawne Williams receive suspensions for rough housing

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    So like we said, that fracas last night in the Knicks-Hawks game was was severe enough to land a few suspensions. The NBA has suspended Marvin Williams of the Hawks two games and Shawne Williams of the Knicks one game for ‘scuffling and tuffling’ as I like to imagine Clyde Frazier would say. The two…

  8. KG hits Channing Frye in the junk, gets ejected

    Jan 29, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    So, in the midst of the Celtics’ abominable debacle against the Suns last night (hello, back-to-backs), things kind of got out of hand. Doc Rivers was tossed for continually arguing calls. The Celtics were getting rolled by the Suns, and then, well, this happened. As to whether or not this was a foul, I only…

  9. Andre Miller calls league “soft” after suspension

    Dec 8, 2010, 10:22 PM EST

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Andre Miller

    Andre Miller did not play Tuesday night for the Portland Trail Blazers — the first time in 632 regular season games, or since the Matrix Reloaded. The reason is a blindside check on Blake Griffin. If he could have, he would have had his stick up on that one and slammed him into the boards.…

  10. Blazers Andre Miller, Clippers Brian Cook get suspensions

    Dec 6, 2010, 6:44 PM EST

    millertrade

    For a game that wasn’t all that close, there was some chippy play in the Clippers and Blazers Sunday tilt. Chippy enough for the league to take notice and hand out its form of justice — Los Angeles’ Brian Cook has been suspended two games for a harsh flagrant two on Joel Pryzbilla (he flattened…

  11. Stephen Jackson apologizes to Bobcats fans in public letter

    Dec 3, 2010, 2:45 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    Stephen Jackson plays with emotion, that is one of the reasons he is the Charlotte Bobcats leading scorer. But those emotions have gotten the better of him a few times too. Like last Saturday, when he got ejected for arguing a call. Which led to a suspension. Jackson is sorry — and he wrote and…

  12. NBA suspends Joey Dorsey for one game

    Oct 14, 2010, 6:19 PM EST

    Joey Dorsey Headshot

    The NBA has just announced that Toronto Raptors forward Joey Dorsey has been suspended for one game for “swinging his arm at the head” of Bulls forward Brian Scalabrine in the fourth quarter of the Bulls-Raptors game that took place on October 12th.

  13. Shockingly, the Indiana media isn't okay with Rush's drug use

    Aug 28, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Someone on your favorite team smokes marijuana. That’s simply based on the probabilities and what we know of NBA life. Regardless of how you, in particular, feel about the sweet stuff, that’s simply the likeliest scenario. Maybe it’s a bench scrub, maybe it’s a superstar. But what we know of marijuana use in the NBA…
