Anyone have better angles of the Lebron Stewart play? Nothing I saw actually showed when he got hit, other than a baseline view blocked off my other players boxing out.

I don’t really see clear intention there. I think he could have been trying to knock Stewart’s arm out of the way and caught him in the face. I think he’ll probably get a game suspension because it does look bad. Don’t think it’s definitely intentional though. Stewart was out of control though and probably is going to get multiple games.

Yeah, I also think it'll probably be a one game suspension for LeBron and really only because of how badly Stewart was bleeding.

That Tweet comparing LeBron to Ron Artest is absurd. Clearly the NBA doesn't look at these incidents in a vacuum, and neither should they. Artest was doing stuff like that for his whole career.

I will say that I don't really like LeBron, so that may color my feelings about this incident. I think he has times where he does subtle stuff intentionally that is dirty, just so that he can claim innocence. Idk if this is one of those times, because it seemed like it was accidental. LeBron is in it for himself(somewhat understandable), and is hyper aware of what people think of him, which can be his downfall at times. He's always been known for not having that Mamba mentality and killer instinct, and sometimes he tries too hard to have that, which borders on or crosses over to dirty play.

Yeah, sounds about right. At least it's proportional. Beef Stew needs to get some anger management coaching. That guy is too big and too strong not to be able to control himself.

I probably would have gone 2 games for James and 4 or 5 for Stewart.

But close enough I guess.

Sacramento's best player this year is either Harrison Barnes or Richaun Holmes, and that ain't getting you anywhere.
