NBA rule book on throwing an elbow

May 7th, 2009
by John

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”

and this…

“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.

    Wow, that must be the screenshot of the ESPN 360 cameras. So they are saying that's an elbow only to the upper chest? Man, some people are blind in New York.

    The intent to harm and premeditation was obvious in Fisher's case. That's what differentiated between the severity of the calls between Kobe and Fisher. Artest should not have been ejected; Stu's post-game flagrant 1 on Kobe is a make-up call. (better than nothing)

    Fisher throws an elbow, gets suspended.
    Dwight Howard elbows dalembert above the shoulders, gets suspended.
    Bryant elbows Artest in the neck, flagrant foul after the fact.

    I guess Artest the leading scorer of the night deserved getting ejected for fouling kobe's elbow with his throat.

    Maybe he was it was because he was in the restricted area or something.

    Joey Crawford keeps on adding his reputation of being one of the most biased refs in the history of sports.

    Somebody check his account on sportsbetting.com and see how much he put on the lakers.

    Does Joey Crawford hate Texas or something? He's always calling ridiculous fouls and technicals on the Spurs, Mavs, and Rockets.

    Let's face it. The NBA is a business, and they are not going to suspend KObe. It will hurt their rating. They don't want the Rockets to win. Their dream match-up in the Final is Kobe vs. LeBron.
