    Pretty physical game. Nice to see that and the effort last night.
    Also as much as I hate Artest, I hate Kobe more, and this is going to be a great match up.
    How about the forearm shiver from Derek Fisher. That woulda made Chuch Norris bleed.

    Very interesting 4th quarter. A little to chippy and it slowed the game down but fun to watch

    For a little guy Derek Fisher is strong. He lit up Scola like a strong safety lights up a WR on a slant!

    And how can you hate anyone more than Artest? If the NBA got rid of him and Stephen Jackson, they would clean up their image so much. Did Kobe throw an elbow? Yes, but I don't think he was going for the throat as much as he was trying to clear out. And with Artest being big and strong (and all over him), Kobe had to be more physical

    Also how about Eddie House getting slapped in the back of the head! I loved it. He runs his mouth after EVERY made shot!

    yeah people always thought eddie was a good quite role player, but i've saw him running his mouth a lot in the playoffs last year.

    I would think the refs would have done a better job of keeping things under control last night. Pretty tacky officiating most of the game - the players didn't know what to expect and obviously felt like they weren't being listened to. Better officiating wouldn't have changed the outcome of the game, perhaps just avoided the conflicts. Great game until it started getting chippy.

    Dirty, cheap shot by Fisher. He'd better be suspended...

    Absolutely ludicrous. Does he somehow deserve to be hit like that? I thought I was watching a football game for a minute.
    Hits like that shouldn't happen.
    If Scola is a punk and deserves to be hit, Kobe is an alleged rapist and deserves . . . ? Think about it.

    Did I say he deserved to be hit? No, I didn't. I said he's a punk, and he is.

    No doubt! What is the rule? If he already got kicked out of the game will he be suspended as well?

    I can't believe he did it. Scola's play on Odom wasn't THAT bad. Surprising b/c Fisher is usually the leader and plays with a level head

    With how intentional it looked, c'mon, how would he not be? That was very, very, dirty. Why not just send in a less impact guy to do it?

    That "elbow" that Kobe "threw towards the throat" is thrown by EVERY PLAYER in EVERY GAME of the year at some point or another when battling for a rebound. Did Kobe go ballistic because Artest was shoving him in the back on THE SAME PLAY!?! No... Artest is an idiot and a head case. He throws that SAME elbow everytime he battles a guy for position... the difference is that the guy who is on the recieving end isn't a drama queen who runs at the ref, and then at the best player in the game. He also wishes he was Kobe.

    I agree with you. I was just asking if anyone knows the rule

    Artest could be more of a pain in the *** than rodman.

    I always thought above the shoulders was a suspension. If Dwight Howard gets it, he should.

    Did you see Artest's interview after the game. Something along the lines of "who would want to mess with me? I am Ron Artest"

    :biglaugh:

    Yeah but Dwights was SOO obvious. Kobe's wasn't as obvious. It wouldn't surprise me either way

    Yeah, Fisher for sure, not sure about Kobe.

    I thought this series was going to be good. Hope it is. Also, how good are the Rockets playing without TMac? Not bad at all, or he just doesn't play in a 'team.'
