Zach Randolph Suspended 2 Games

For punching Louis Amundson in the face, the NBA responds with a meager slap on the wrist. Is suspension mercy to a Clippers player?

    That’s it? Damn, someone should just beat the sh*t out of Sasha Vukovic then. What’s the worst that could happen…..6 games? Do the world a favor. Kurt Thomas? Ron Ron? Brandon Bass? C’mon!!! They should have bounties like the NFL.

    “someone should just the sh*it out of Vujacic*
    F*ck, for a 2 game suspension Melo should have chocked the f*cker harder. A death would be, what? A week off max?

    Zach Randolph and the Clippers deserve each other.

    Make it an All Star Game event.

    MONSTER cosign to Eboy on working Vujacic over.
    I’m definitely surprised that this was only 2 games, though I didn’t think it was going to be 10 like some one here predicted. But reading Z Bos reaction he didnt sound remorseful at all, saying isht like “If I would’ve hit him he wouldn’t have gotten up off the floor.”
    What an idiot.

    Give Z-Bo some credit. He hasn’t punched anyone in over 17 hours.

    and Melo got suspended for 15 games for slapping Mardy Collins and backpeddling? wtf?

    You’re right albie. Thats kinda messed up. Its not like ZBO deserves the benefit of the doubt or anything.

    im sure the refs were privy to what was going on between zach and amundson previous to the punch.

  • Jess

    thats it?..Stern continues to get everything wrong…what can you do…

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    So what Tarzan? ZBo was just mad because Amundson stood up in his face after the foul. I read ZBOs account and he said he pushed Amundson’s face away because he got too close when he stood up. ALso, “the refs” don’t determine suspensions. I don’t think what melo did was any worse, he was trying to respond to a flagrant foul against a teammate.

  • Sebastian B. O. Bunionstow, esq.

    It’s all Amundson’s fault. He stuck his face in front of ZBO’s fist.

    effed up.

    I’m furious with this bullsh!t. How are these suspensions determined? I’ve never been as harsh a critic of stern as some people on this site but WTF? Amare and Diaw left their bench to stand up for their teammate and they got the same fcuking penalty as zach who actually clocked someone in the face with a close fist?????? Where the fcuk is justice? Just because no one gives a flying fcuk about the nailclippers don’t mean you should treat players on that team any differently

  • chris

    albie, you beat me to it.

  • buggsie7_aus

    Man… I don’t get this. ANd Albie…PLEEEEAse dont bring up the diaw stoudemire situation….I’ve only just now stopped crying myself to sleep at night over that one.

  • J-O

    man this is not enough i got kicked out of a gym near my house for a week for yelling at a ref and he gets two days

  • clapzilla

    If David Stern Took Bids On What Team Got To Torture & Likely Kill Sasha Vuvabitch, The Nuggets Would Easily Win. Eddie Najera Would Throw In His Entire Contract To Try To Get The Nets Up There. I Think Even The Lakers Would Be In Contention.

  • Che

    Naw I think someone should beat the hell out of Paul Pierce. The Biggest flopper/crybaby in the league. Stephen Jackson I heard paul pierce called your mom a whore!

  • J Jones

    come on peeps, Zach is a crazy man, cant you see it in his eyes. Zach, is a amazing player, but his head just isint right. He stood over the guy like a bully, who does this? However there is the other side of this maybe the dude with the pony tail tried to kiss him, because hey not everyone wears a pony tail, u feel me?

    this is weak man….weak.

  • underdog

    He’s got only 2 games, because playing for the Clippers every night is the real punishment.
