The NBA is messed up. Ron Artest made a mistake but he did the right thing. Players have to put up with [Oops!] from the fans and finally he took a stand. The NBA shouldn't be suspending him ANY games, they should be rewarding him with MORE games or something. If you know Ron Artest you know he should be given like at least a 20 game credit for what he did after Wallace shoved him. It was a spectacle to sit on the table but it was the best thing for him to do. Those fans should be arrested and never let into the games again ALL of them. Stephen Jackson did the right thing too. When you get in fights like that you don't know what's going to happen and you have to stick up for your buddies. Those fans deserved more of an [Oops!]-whooping than they already got.
I'm glad there were cameras theyre I hope they make alot of arrests. 30 Games is way too harsh for doing the right thing. Going into the stands should be punished but the fan started it and security did nothing to stop it. It should have been security the first person there to that fan that threw the drink at Artest, not Artest himself. Blame security for not getting to the fans first, blame the refs for not calling the game earlier, but don't blame Artest for doing the right thing. Artest has obviously gotten better with his issues and did something totally out character by staying out of conflict with the Pistons. Wallace should be suspended one game for pursuing Artest and throwing his headband or whatever. Artest one game max simply to please Piston fans and Jackson, O'Neal shouldn't be suspended or fined anything. This was all the fans and security. It's a shame more Pistons players didn't step in there and stop the fans.
