Pretty dumb.

Congratulations, Adam Silver.

It's been a rule forever. It's even enforced in the playoffs(check out Suns vs Spurs 2007)

Ejection has no monetary penalty, unless I'm wrong.

$30k for OG is far less than Fred's single game suspension without pay

Oh I thought they already came with a fine

The NBA promotes fan emotion and the up close experience of live attendance.

But the Malice at the Palace was a dark stain on the NBA. Players fighting with fans was a bad look. If I recall, the prohibitions on players going onto the court during an altercation or going into the stands period was a result of the Palace melee.

Still a dumb rule.


Google "Kermit Washington punch"

The NBA is justifiably anal about minimizing the possibility of fights breaking out.


If someone is going to throw hands, someone is going to throw hands. No fine is going to stop anyone like Kermit.


The amount of actual fist fights has dropped significantly since the NBA made it a priority to stamp them out. Sure, if someone REALLY wants to do it they could, but it's like saying we shouldn't have any rules because if someone wants to break them they will.

Some of the posts in this thread seem to think that the NBA rules on players leaving the bench during altercations and subsequent fines and suspensions are imposed by the NBA. They aren't.

All of these rules, including the fine and suspension framework, are a negotiated agreement between the NBA and the players association. They don't exist in a vacuum. They are part of the broader partnership between the league and the players. Those rules seem to be effective in that they have brought about the desired result of minimizing the number of and scope of on-court fights and brawls. Nothing "dumb" about that.

Funny thing is, i think OG had lost his bearings as his head was down the whole time and never even meant to flip Schroeder in the way he did. He may actually have been trying to steady him. He looks like he thought he had is other leg and not his weight bearing one. You could see it in OG's reaction after the event happened.

He serves the suspension once he’s physically cleared


So can the team clear him one game earlier than he's really ready?


Meanwhile Schroeder who provoked the whole thing gets nothing.

A good assumption since it's totally out of character for OG to do anything dirty intentionally. He is not like that.

And Schroeder provoked him by hanging on tight far longer than necessary, not letting go.

Schroeder gave a hard, normal, "wrap-up" foul... what does he deserve? He reacted how anyone who got a side slam would have reacted.

I do agree, that it looked worse than it seemed and I don't believe OG had any intent on his part. It looked like OG had one leg, and Schroeder lost his other/balance resulting in falling back.

Not far enough. Their best friends on the team also should be suspended for the year, which according to some, would be Pascal and Trent. All two way contracts are immediately promoted to the starting line up averaging at least 35 minutes per game. And finally, the head coach is to exchange organizational roles with the team mascot.

Sometimes, you just gotta nip these things in the bud.

I know. The NBA response to the Lakers-Raps game is ridiculous. FVV, OG and Bembry easily deserve to be suspended for the season. Man, our team got a slap on the wrist.

These are automatic suspensions, I believe other leagues like the NHL operate the same way when it comes to leaving the bench during an altercation.

They should suspend them 10 games (with pay).
That will send a message to the entire league.

Let’s say one more guy left the bench, I wonder if the NBA would have forced a walkover. Probably not since they are all about the money so they’d stagger the suspensions because the show must go on. But who cares if the show sucks.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

We are not picky. Any loss is a good loss. But any win is a fake win, rest of this year.
