Ejected 2 games in a row unfairly. He's a changed man. Don't keep hating on him to make him go crazy again. Wow. This is [expletive]ing stupid. Come on NBA. How stupid is this [expletive].

I can kinda see the ejection the first time.

The second time was a mess. It should have been a regular foul call and two shots.

With that said, with all the talking he's been doing, I have no remorse for him.

2nd ejection was way uncalled for. that was BS.


it was a hard foul and he was going for the ball, wasnt going for the face or to throw him down.

From what they were saying on the radiocast a few minutes back, they said that the reason he got the Flagrant 2 was due to the taunting after the foul. He's really digging himself into a whole with all that jawing. Works for me ;)

Agreed. Let Ron talk it up, let us shut him up, and let Kobe yell YOU CAN'T STOP ME after every sick shot.

I never hated him. I wanted him to be part of the Lakers.
I just think sometimes he needs to control his anger. I love his game and passion. But he should of not been ejected. the nba is rigged!

he did not taunt anyone, he even reached his hand down to help pau up but took it back and walked away.

I just don't get the NBA at all. Rondo gets no repercussions for his actions, but others keep getting thrown out and whatnot. Lack of consistency is so annoying.

I'm just reiterating what Spiro and Mychal reported after the refs reviewed the play. Doesn't matter though, Artest isn't going to get any love from refs when he's a loose cannon just waiting to go off.

It wasnt suppose to be an ejection but what he did in game 2 has the refs to have an extra eye on him and since the way pau gasol fell they called an flagrant 2

Karma I suppose, but no, I see your point and it's definitely valid, but hey, it's just another one of those cases of, life's not fair and double standards. Anyway, didn't matter really. Game was already over so it would've definitely been something to get riled up about a lot more had the game been on the line or something.

He definitely in no way deserved a flagrant foul for that or to be injected. The NBA needs to let some more physical play be allowed, it's really becoming a [expletive] league.

On the foul it looked like whoever was behind Pau (Lowry?) hit Pau first and kind of twisted his body and at the same time Artest was going up for the block, so when Pau's body got twisted by Lowry; Artest missed the ball and came down hard on Gasol. No dirty intent, I don't even think he was sending a message. Just a hard foul, should have been two shots and Rockets ball. And it didn't appear that Artest even said anything after the play. It was BS.

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
