I think they'll just fine Dirk, not suspend him. It would be bad for business if one team's superstar is suspended from the possible series-clincher because he kicked a ball into the stands.

frankly dirk deserves a suspension for his actions after the game a hell of a lot more than jerry stackhouse deserved a suspension for his flagrant foul on shaq.

It should be interesting to see how much Cuban will be fined for his actions. Not only did he yell and scream at officials complaining about the officiating, he was wearing a Stackhouse jersey. That's a semi blatant effU to the commish (who was in attendance) and the decision for suspending Stackhouse.

About the phantom phoul, it may have been a foul and it may not have. I agree with Headache that at that time in the game, and if the call is not super obvious, the whistle has to be swallowed. From the replays, it looked as though the Mavs played D very well.

The drama has been built. Not only do we have an extended series, we have a pissed off Mavs team who lost 3 in a row in bad ways and look to be on the ropes. The NBA could not have written a better script for these next 1-2 games.

Cuban Fined $100,000,000 and Nowitzki Suspended for Games 6 and 7

Quote:
AP-Dallas
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was levied the heftiest fine in professional sports history today when NBA Commissioner David Stern fined the boisterous Dallas owner 100 million dollars for "questioning my good judgement and defying all laws of good fashion" by wearing a Jerry Stackhouse game jersey while sitting courtside at game 5 of the NBA finals. Cuban has not decided yet whether to appeal the fine.
Also from camp Dallas, hot headed superstar Dirk Nowitzki was suspended for tomorrow's game 6 as well as a possible 7th game for kicking the basketball into the upper deck of American Airlines arena after last night's loss, hitting a Miami youth in the face. The youth, Saul Rabinowitz has questioned the German native's true motivation for targeting him with the kicked ball.
Stern decided the league had no choice but to keep Nowitzki off of the floor for the balance of the series. At press time, rumors of a Nowitzki tryout as punter for Bill Parcells' Dallas Cowboys were starting to swirl around central Texas.

Those were the best 10 seconds of your life (followed closely by the 10 seconds with that girl under the boardwalk at Coney Island, you know, when she let you....













...have a bite of her hot dog.)

i guess it appears that david stern rigged the refs in the mavs-spurs finals only so that he could then rig the refs against the mavs in the finals, making cuban all the more pissed off.

that david stern... he is an evil genius. like darth vader, or the claw from inspector gadget.

I'm sick from that game.

I couldn't sleep at all last night, and I've received "are you still alive" text messages from 8 different people.

I still think the Mavs are gonna do it though. I've still got the faith.

some nice gentleman set him straight.

A backcourt violation followed by four steps without the ball, otherwise known as travling. Why isn't this shit called? Why, if we can see this shit sitting at home, can't the ref standing five feet away from these guys see it?

I just wanted to bring to attention this prophetic passage from Bill Simmons' article in which he made his Finals predictions:

Quote:
And that's the thing that bothers me about this series: No team depends on the refs quite like the Heat. When the refs are calling all the bumps on Shaq and protecting Wade on every drive, they're unstoppable. When they're calling everything fairly, they're eminently beatable. If they're not getting any calls, they're just about hopeless. I could see the refs swinging two games in Miami's favor during this series, possibly three. In fact, I'm already depressed about it and the series hasn't even started yet.

Smart man.
