So Ron gets his time off , Ben Wallace gets a slap on the wrist, Bill Walton pitches a fit ("The shock, dismay and sadness have not diminished at all with time" CHILL OUT JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, IT'S NOT LIKE A KENNEDY GOT SHOT), that fat kid who looked like Turtle from Entourage gets his dome dented by Jermaine (don't worry, when he's done raiding J.O.'s financial holdings he be able to cop a fine new Marc Jacobs head-piece), and David Stern let the thunder roll down the mount.
I don't really have anything to add other then:
1. Ron should've gotten maybe 30 games, at the most.
2. This whole, "How will we the fans protect ourselves from the raging fury of rogue NBA players vaulting into the stands" line of thinking can be answered quite easily: MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T DROP THE N-BOMB/TALK SHIT ABOUT A GUY'S FAMILY/TELL PAUL PIERCE YOU HOPE HE GETS STABBED AGAIN/THROW SOLID OBJECTS AT PEOPLE IF YOU DON'T WANT STEPHEN JACKSON TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE. AGAIN AND AGAIN.
Indy is fucked, yes. But I think Billy Hunter will get the O'Neal suspension knocked down. While young J.O. did probably inflict the most damage (see aforementioned chooch with knuckle imprint on his face), he was basically protecting what is supposed to be a player's sanctuary. If he comes back and they can stay in the hunt until Jackson returns early next year, Indy could still make noise. Peace out, Dunny Artest. May you menage with Allure and chomp Paxil til the '05!

you're kidding me...
Artest deserves exactly what he got.
He acted like a child, and forgot himself.
He also forgot that the NBA is first and foremost a business,
and that any sponsor, advertiser, or fan is more important than him.
His sense of self-importance and small intellect got the better of him.

I've got no problem with attitude, Rodman and Barkley are classic examples of it. But neither of them ever forgot themselves like Artest. Being harassed by fans is part of the game. Just ask Reggie Miller anytime he goes to Madison Square Garden.

All the shit that happened after Artest went into the stands is bananas, and
all of those people should face repercussions. But let's be clear: Artest started this. That is why he deserves his punishment. And I don't want to hear any "what about the plastic cup" shit. Hundreds of players have been hit by plastic cups. Some players have been injured by objects thrown at them. Stadium security is not an issue for the players to take into their own hands. Drunken idiots are a part of the game, a part of the business. If a fan comes on the floor, a player has the right to defend himself (J.O.!). But let's be clear. that's not the case with Artest.

The only other person who can share some of the blame here is the head of security for "the Palace" No question, that shit would be hard to pull off in another stadium. But any head of security should be worried about the safety of the fans and players, not if the players are going to attack the fans. Sad situation. Artest is an idiot.

Ron Artest needs to be voted to the All-Star game. Nothing would be more hysterical.
