    Default Davis gets 5 games

    http://www.nba.com/news/Davis_Suspended_060119.html

    NEW YORK, Jan. 19 New York Knicks forward Antonio Davis has been suspended five games without pay for entering the spectator stands, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Senior Vice President Basketball Operations.

    "We have made it plain to our players and our fans that players may not enter the spectator stands, no matter the provocation, and that violations of this policy will be treated with the utmost seriousness," Jackson said. "We have concluded, however, that Antonio's actions were the result of his belief that his family members required his immediate assistance, and have taken those mitigating circumstances into account in setting the length of the suspension."

    The incident occurred with 1:04 remaining in the overtime period of the Knicks' 106-104 loss to the Chicago Bulls at United Center. Davis will begin serving his suspension tonight as the Knicks host the Detroit Pistons.

    Not bad, but he only deserved 2-3 games.

    No problem with 5-8 games.

    Antonio should take the time to either ban his wife from the games or tell her to behave.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Stu Jackson just completely contradicted his first sentence with the second.

    Also, an EXTREMELY classy move by Walsh to make the comments he did to Marc Stein regarding the difference in the two situations. Walsh is a stand-up guy.

    It certainly doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility. Kenrda's no wallflower.

    It'll be very interesting to see how this plays out. I hope they get the whole incident on camera.

    I don't think Antonio minds this suspension much. He's the union president and of all people knows the consequences for his actions.

    However, what's going to kill him is if it turns out his wife started it, and it winds up costing him 845K in lost salary, plus another million in a lawsuit.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    No, but his wife did.

    Do you think Kendra's going to cut the check for that if he gets awarded that amount, or Antonio?

    Appropriate suspension IMO.

    Gotta keep these guys on the court, let security do their job by notifying them of the problem.

    STU Jackson did a "great" job of convincing Stu Jackson that he only deserved 5 games, according to ESPN.

    From video of the incident, and eyewitness accounts on ESPN, it seems like Kenda and the fan were equally at fault. She turned around and got in the fan's face, and the fan argued back at her.

    You can clearly see the fan turn around call for an usher to intervine, as Kenda is still yelling at him while his back is turned.

    Then Kendra puts her hand in his face, the dan pushed her hand away and I assume from there, that's when she lost it and scratched him.

    The guy didnt look drunk, though. He WAS definately cussing back and forth at her.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    They just talked about it on espn they said that his wife was jumping up and down cheering for the knicks blocking the view of the fan behind her. the fan behind her told her to sit down and shutup and he also threw some explicit langue in. she was pointing at him saying something and they said he moved her hand out of his face.

    Kstat, what the heck are you talking about?

    Other than a shouting match, there wasn't anything that happened. I think any talk of a lawsuit is ridiculous.

    And being in an opponent's arena, I doubt seriously if she started anything.

    He's saying she started it, and he's suing her for $1 million.

    Not saying he'll get it, but he's going forward with it.

    Shade, I honestly don't see there being any way for you to enter this discussion and not come out mad. Not saying you can't participate, but doing so is just going to irritate you further.

    We've all made up our minds on how 11/19 was handled. Bringing it up as it relates to this incident is rather aimless.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Well, that and she did have him ejected. From a pretty good game, too.

    Obviously, it's ridiculous to ask for a million, but I've seen lesser things result in more cash before....
