    I hope not , but I think league will upgrade his flagrant 1 to flagrant 2.. and so he will be suspended.

    If my memory serve me well. Artest got ejected 11 games after unintentional elbow Harden.

    I'm thinking no because of the foul by Bogut that they missed on that play.

    If so, this "flagrant" is the reason. So screw the NBA.

    Doesn't matter, that was a flagrant 2 - he should have been ejected.

    As a franchise that went through the Rudy T - Kermit Washington punch, we know the dangers of a blow to the head.

    Dwight Howard is a dumbass. No control over his emotions.

    Wasn't an elbow. He hit him with his wrist.

    It's a crime that Bogut didn't get called for anything. A damn crime. How does that happen?


    The silver lining is that Dwight got called for a flagrant and not a tech, because a tech would have had him suspended, I believe.

    Dwight was clearly going for the forearm back after Bogut pushed him then grabbed his arm. Unfortunately, Dwight connected with his face.


    It was handled properly in the game. Nothing else to see here.

    I mean Bogut pushed him and had a holt of him. He was freeing his arm but in a malicious frustrated way.

    i think in most cases that would be changed to a flagrant 2.

    the only reason it may not is because of the weak flagrant against dirk, and the other being because the nba wants more games in the playoffs.

    so i dunno what will happen. how long does it typically take to announce the decision if it will be changed or not??
