Thread: Should Karl Malone be suspended for his latest elbow throwing escapade?

  1. #1

    Default Should Karl Malone be suspended for his latest elbow throwing escapade?

    I guess he elbowed Derrick Martin in the neck, rather than the head as Peeler did.

    But is was nearly as blatant and of course the guy has a history. (see this link for past Malone elbows

    http://www.makingpages.org/hoops/Malone.danger.html

    We all know that he WON'T be suspended, since he plays for the David Stern Lakers... err... NBA LAkers... errr... ABC Lakers...

    oh, right...

    LA Lakers.

    I haven't seen the play but if it was above the shoulders then yeah, he should be suspended.

    Yeah i think so. He is one of the most dirtiest players in the game. If Artest were to throw an elbow instant suspension.

    If the Nba has any integrity, then he will be suspended.

    I saw the match, was very physical and he had already brutally kneed Hoiberg earlier in the game, so yes, if they can give Artest a suspension as easily as they have given him vs the Celtics than this should (EMPHASIZE) definitely be a one game suspension. Whether they will (EMPHASIZE) is an entirely different matter on the otherhand. I really hope so.

    Another bright note ... my pay-tv company will finally air the Pacers (game 2) tomorrow night, Only the 2nd time this year, so it was about time again.

    You answer your question yourself in a round-a-bout way. The NBA has no integrity when it comes to Superstars.
    Two=the number 2
    Too=means "also"
    To=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (two, too) do not apply.

    Their=shows ownership-'it is their house'
    They're=they are
    There=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (their, they're) do not apply

    Sorry but it bugs me when these are used incorrectly when I read posts on PacersDigest.com.

    If Artest deserves a suspension for the D Anderson elbow, then Malone deserves 2 games. But its LA, so he'll be playing next game

    Then they should have suspended KG , bet your *** , if ron artest woulda did what KG woulda did to peeler , what Brad Miller did to Martin ... he woulda been suspened for several games.

    You actually believe the NBA still has Integrity , so far only artest and peeler have been suspened for playoff games , imagine that 2 small market teams , while the big market teams get away with murder

    I think he will be suspended a game. It was obvious he was throwing his elbow and not moving though a pick as Phil Jackson said.

    RA would be suspended for just "Thinking about it"!Malone "Belong's"to the NBA's Market Winning team and he's a Major Veteran.......So nothing will happen!If it were Reggie or another Pacer. (ESP)-RA.....Gone for @ least 2-3 game's!

    NBA integrity = Military intelligence.

    That's why I added the "if" into the sentence....I don't think he will be suspended...but IF the NBA had INTEGRITY then Malone WOULD sit out game 3.

    Good point. When Malone did that, I turned to my wife and said, Ron would be suspended for that.

    Beyond that, Malone did it callously with no concern for Martin's well being. From what I understand, this is a pattern with him. If so, he's a dirtbag.

    He is. Read that link in the first post here and I'm sure you'll agree; and that doesn't even tell all of it. The man is a menace. If Ron had his attitude with elbows, he'd have been expelled from the league by now. No joke.

    those high knee thrusts to a defenders groin that he loves to do when finishing a dunk or layup close to the basket or on fast breaks / drives to the basket.

    Robert Horry's voice gets raised (not a knee, but shows the general tactic):

    I don't care if Malone was fighting through a screen - that was what Artest was doing when he was suspended. Artest got suspended because he hit Anderson above the shoulders and that is exactly what Malone did.

    I don't think anything will come of this but I hope I'm wrong. The difference in this situation is that ESPN hasn't shown this incident over and over like they did Artest's. There also wasn't Bill Walton challenging the NBA to suspend Malone like he did Artest.

    It's sad, but it's true!. Karl did what Ron did: fighting through a screen and clocking someone above the shoulders. And Ron lost a game for it.

    $7,500 fine. Pfft. That's like $7.50 to you and me. Not even a slap on the wrist. More like a finger wag.

    Alderidge (not my favorite guy btw) is calling shenanigans:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playof...vid&id=1808516

    ---snip---
    I would not feel so strongly about this if the league A) hadn't been so adamant over the years about condemning any contact above the shoulder, whether it came from a punch or an elbow. The league's various chieftans of discipline have all said the same thing: windup, contact and follow-through are a flagrant foul, subject to suspension. And even if there's some question about whether to suspend a guy, this brings me to B).


    The league always says that patterns of behavior are taken into account when disciplining players; i.e., if you do something once, you get disciplined X. You do something twice, you get disciplined X-plus. And so on. This escalating scale certainly seemed to be in place (correctly) with Dennis Rodman and Dikembe Mutombo. How many times over the years have we seen The Mailman hit somebody in the head? Isiah Thomas, Steve Nash, Brian Grant and David Robinson come to mind. Every time, Malone is utterly unrepentant, and that's his right. But the league shouldn't condone that kind of behavior.

    Wow, big surprise there. I guess Malone will actually have to permenately injure someone before he gets his just due.
