    Crime, honestly, I thought the Ts were questionable. Sanders deserves it.

    Im not sure I find Danny's fine just, but its pocket-change for the two highest paid Pacers. Sanders is a thug. He deserved it.

    According to the CBS Sports post, Danger Granger was fined, so if you were worried about Danny getting fined, it's all good...

    Whatever. Guys get angry playing basketball sometimes. News at 11. I noticed the "out of control" Sanders didn't swing on West. Stupid but not crazy. West would've snapped him like a toothpick.

    West has that Oakley vibe. You better be all in if you're taking him on.

    My favorite part of the event is when Sanders has a clear shot to run at Granger or West, and just stops, but continues to act like he wants to fight.

    You go tough guy! lol

    I know that many will disagree here.....but I find it fair. Although ANYTHING could have set off the already the provebial "powderkeg" that was Sanders.....I think that Granger initially "lit the match that eventually started the fire" by yelling at Sanders for pushing over Hibbert.....and then GH "took the lit match and lit the fuse" when he said something ( don't know what he said ) to Sanders that caused him to go off the deep end.

    In the end....Sanders should have been an adult and just walk away....but he didn't....so he should get the vast majority of the blame here.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Assuming the average American makes ~50k per year that's about like a $125 fine. Like a speeding ticket basically.

    Because its the NBA and they have a reputation of being "thugs" and well this involves the Pacers so yes its being a bit blown out of proportion but I think the punishment was fair. I didn't see it live though but from what they showed in the highlights seems like a regular NBA skirmish to me.

    Then again I remember the fight the Knicks/Suns had in 1993 and that was no big deal it would be a PR disaster now go figure lol.

    Not a good day for Larry Sanders...he got punked and suspended. If you can't be a tough guy...don't act like a tough guy.

    There is nothing more pathetic in a fight than "someone hold me back" guy. I've seen sharper turns in NASCAR races than the circles Sanders was running around West buying time for his teammates to catch up to him....

    Interesting that they're calling it an illegal screen on Danny. If you look extremely carefully, there's a slight shift by Danny, but it's so minuscule that it's hard to imagine it getting called in a game. Anybody disagree?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
