I read the latest edition of the NBA roundtable and as usual, good job. However, and the incident probably happened after topics were decided, the whole Joakim Noah incident to include Mr. Silver’s fine is absolutely wussy-to-the-nth-power-stupid-beyond-belief-not-worth-the-breath-it-took-to-say-it-WRONG!
Only since the move of the Thunder to OKC have I began my transformation BACK to the NBA. I am NOT ready to watch the entire shebang become the next WWE Monday Night Raw. Or whatever it is labeled these days.
IF this first act of discipline from Mr. Silver was supposed to be a joke and the real fine is forthcoming then, “Ha Ha Mo-Fo, you got me!”
I for one am not certain that $15 grand per F bomb would have even been enough, let alone $15 K for the entire “3 time point and shoot F-You bombs” that Noah directed at the Officials.
I can see where some players will take this action as a “Let Up” of the iron fist days of Stern; and take advantage of it until they can find his limits for enforcing the rules of conduct and discipline.
I have let a few F’Bombs off in my day and sometimes they help one to feel better. Kind of like walking into the brisk cold of outside just to regroup.
I did think Noah’s was a little over the top, and somewhat funny to watch on the replay. And don’t get me wrong, I have actually been a fan of his since his college days but this was a little much. Heck, it would have made Rasheed Wallace blush (jk).
However, I expected as well that he would be properly disciplined. After all, what do we teach our kids about discipline? This fine would be like telling a kid he can only have one bowl of ice cream since he did not eat his dinner.
IMO, this is just another classic case of the American morals and ethics being thrown right out the F.(iretruck)……… window. Thought I was going to say something else didn’t you…..
This is just my opinion. Please feel free to express yours; that’s why we are here.
