Josh McRoberts threw an elbow at LeBron's neck and just got a fine. If Nene gets anything, it'll be a fine.
I thought the refs got it right last night. T on Butler and double T on Nene. That was appropriate. Noah obviously just wants Nene to get suspended to give them a chance to get back into the series.
McBob elbow happened during game action. Nene headbutt happened during a dead ball timeout. Those are two very different things. One went for a hard foul during the game, Nene was looking for a fight during a timeout. Let's not compare apples to bananas.
He's a repeat offender as well, he's been suspended 2 games for a headbutt before. Thabeet got 1 game for a headbutt earlier this season, and it was kitten play compared to the Nene altercation.
Considering the circumstances of it being the Playoffs, 1 game suspension is uniform for the NBA. Of course Noah would want him suspended, he did the crime to deserve a suspension - and Nene has been giving Noah fits. No Nene will open up the floor a lot for Noah.
