This from the NBA rule book that substantiates why Bryant should be suspended for Game 3.
“A player, coach or trainer may be ejected for:
(1) An elbow foul which makes contact shoulder level or below
(2) Any unsportsmanlike conduct where a technical foul is assessed
(3) A flagrant foul where unnecessary and/or excessive contact occurs”
“Elbow fouls, which make contact above shoulder level, and punching fouls, although recorded as both personal and team fouls, are unsportsmanlike acts. The player will be ejected immediately.”
I love how SportsRadio610’s Matt Jackson said a few minutes ago that Bryant is a “douche.”
Regarding Derek Fisher, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that thug will be suspended.
Step up, Stu Jackson, on suspending Bryant with Fisher. It’s long overdue.
