What an utterly foolish thing he did...wtf was he thinking?
Considering he was having his best year yet and was outscoring Wade and Lebron (who were previously eclipsing him).... I just dont know. Really, really bad timing (not that there's ever a time for this). For one thing, the fight was essentially cooling off at that point too!

i think the suspension was right--- 15 game minimum, 20 would have been better... i think--- just reminds everyone that even the colorful stars in all of the commercials are nothing but thugs --- it was a really weak punch but what was up with collins after he connected? he like fell to the ground as if it were a solid hit????--- all in all a pretty big embarressment to everyone involved- thats why i like my spurs--- we dont sign "those" players

He didn't fall from the hit. Watch closely, his teammate pulled on him, trying to get past him to Anthony. That tug is what pulled him down.

No soccer-style fall downs in the NBA :laugh: But, yeah, the thug image HAS to go.

gotta give the Spurs props, you're right about that. I think almost all of them would walk away from this nonsense.

"the thug image has to go"? those players are born with the thug in them--- it aint goin nowhere--- all the nba can do is inact a dress code/ strciter rules to try to control it.... maybe those rules everyone whines about make a little more sense now?

I dont think Wade was born a thug. I dont think Parker or Duncan were born thugs.

Seen Spreewell playing anywhere recently?

I think the thug image has got to go. I teach underpriveleged kids and they really really do idolize these characters.

Thug image ? When hockey players fight every game, do we call them thugs ? Gotta be a double-standard

terrible comparison dude--- your talking about two different breeds of human being here--- and sh*t fighting is part of hockey i believe--- terrible..... terrible comparison!

ace i didnt mean all players are born with the thug in them, but if you watch enough nba as i think you do you should have a pretty good idea of who is and who isnt--- dont be fooled tho(see kobe bryant)

What's that ? caucasians and africans ?


Trust me, I am the last person in the world to EVER play the race card in any situation as I believe minorities get enough preferential treatment in today's society but you can't tell me race doesn't play a part here. You see two young white hockey players going at it - "Ahh it's just a part of the game, let em be", you see two young black basketball players fighting - "THUGS !!! THUGS !!! THEY'RE ALL A BUNCH OF THUGS!!"
