    Default JR Suspended

    Good news for all those who thought we could not afford to bring him back this is the sort of thing that is going to keep teams leery. With it all but decided that we are going to go up 3-0 he throws an elbow on a game that had no emotion to it at all.

    I am a fan of JR but plays like this are maddening!

    I guess another positive is that knowing we are without our 2nd leading scorer we should be focused for this game and not assuming another easy victory

    This is really horrible timing tho!

    by committee Shump gotta give us 6 more tomorrow, Felton has to do more and Tyson has to score 13 or more...

    Default JR suspended for Game 4

    Really didn't expect it but the NBA felt that JR's flagrant 2 was worthy of a 1 game suspension for game 4.

    This is BS, this is the playoffs and if we were deadlocked 3-3 with the series hanging in the balance this suspension might mean the difference in advancing. The rules need to be adjusted for the playoffs, fines and not suspensions if it isn't a blatant Artest elbow to Harden's head knock down.

    Judge for yourself, to me it was worthy of an ejection but not a suspension.

    Boston need all help they can get and David Stern answer the call...ridiculous suspension if you ask me.

    Posted this and the video in another thread, he deserved an ejection but come on Stu Jackson this is the playoffs and the Knicks season could be over without JR if this was game 7.

    Judge for yourself.

    JR needs to conduct himself a lot better than that. We are winning. No need to "rock the boat" at this point. Why are you playing such an aggressive offense at that point in the game. Don't give Boston any chance at life.

    JR wasn't happy with the overly aggressive swipe Terry made at the ball prior to the elbow. His elbow was rough, but I think the refs overreacted and this suspension is BS basically.

    Charles Oakley and Anthony Mason are shaking their damn heads.....NBA has gotten so soft, 80s mid 90s this was a personal foul every time .

    Bet some guys would had gotten away with both calls (Wade, LeBron, Durant, Maybe even Melo)

    If Durant elbowed Terry, the refs would eject Terry and get Durant ice for his elbow.

    On an other board someone posted a pic of KG choking Bill Walker... and I started asking myself: what happened to this guy? Did some little research and it seems Walker ended up as a bench player with a below average D-League team... damn, I kind of liked this guy.

    NBA if you want a game 5 that badly suspend Melo, Tyson, Felton, K Mart, Prigs and Kidd as well.

    NBA is beyond predictable.

    Warranted an ejection, but not a suspension.

    I still remember when Rondo threw Kirk Hinrich into the scorers' table in the playoffs a few years back and didn't even get ejected for it.
