Blazers center Meyers Leonard and Sixers big man Daniel Orton got into it on Saturday night in Philly, and they’ve each been suspended for a game. From the press release: “Portland center Meyers Leonard and Philadelphia 76ers center Daniel Orton have each been suspended one game without pay after Leonard initiated an altercation by body-slamming Orton to the floor, and Orton retaliated by elbowing Leonard in the mouth.

    Meyers knew what he did too. I hate biased announcers

    He fucking took Orton down with a wrestling move.

    leonard 1 game, orton 2 games sound more fair. Elbow to the jaw is 10 times more dangerous than wrestling to the ground.

    two games??? what kinda world are we living in. Let the guys play. yeah the body slam was bad…but thats contact sports, and that elbow wasn’t even intentional. Dock the dudes a few beans, don’t suspend them. Obviously no malice involved

    you could tell Orton was just trying to roll over and pick himself up, look at his immediate reaction after the contact. Meyers looks like he just body slammed him but I think their momentums had something to do with how bad it looked. ultimately just two good guys getting a little caught up
