The Spurs did such a bad foul, and the Suns get penalized. What a JOKE.

What about in the 2nd quarter when Duncan and Bowen came off the bench after the Elson dunk when he attempted to go at James Jones? If STAT and Diaw get suspended, then so should those two for that.

This is the most UNFAIR of anything i have ever seen in the NBA!!!!! Robert Horey cause this!!!!! The Suns only reacted to see if their team mate Steve was ok!!!! To remove two of the most important players is all wrong!!! Horey should be the only one punished here!!!!

Thank you,

I live in Texas, so since Houston and Dallas are eliminated I should be a Spurs fan, right? Not way. And I will no longer watch the playoffs since the league suspended the Suns players like this. I can't support a league who fixes playoff outcomes in this way. Go to hell, nba.

Sent to the NBA-
AFTER THE FLAGRANT FOUL BODY CHECK ON STEVE NASH, ROBERT HORRY IS EJECTED. BUT THEN, THE NBA DECIDES TO LOSE THE RESPECT PEOPLE HAD FOR THAT MOVE WHEN THEY SUSPEND AMARE STOUDEMIRE AND BORIS DIAW..WHATTTTTTT? TWO PLAYERS WHO DID NOTHING- DIDNT GO AFTER SPURS PLAYERS OR ANYTHING- YET GOT SUSPENDED BECAUSE OF A RIDICULOUS RULE THAT I THOUGHT WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE TEAMS LIKE SAN ANTONIO GET PENALIZED.. BUT WAIT INSTEAD IT PENALIZES THE PHOENIX SUNS. RIDICULOUSLY LUDICRIOUS DECISION THE NBA MADE. HOW ABOUT SUSPENDING TIM DUNCAN THEN FOR GOING ON THE COURT???

The NBA is becoming a joke in itself. That suspension was crap, and Horry is a joke. If the Suns lose the series... no more NBA for me. I'd rather watch pro wrestling,... atleast they know that you know that it's fixed.

PLEASE, spurs fans be realistic your team is VERY VERY DIRTY TEAM and I'm not saying this because I'm a Phoenix Suns fan is because I've seen the DIRTY TEAM play dirty. Come on admitted the only reason the Spurs have been winning is because of all the DIRTY plays they have made. ADMITTED, Stop being Spurs fans for one minute and think about it!!!!

Wow, Stu Jackson is a joke. It's decisions like this that make fans turn away from the nba. To punish someone for reacting to someone else doing something wrong is pretty narrow thinking. I wonder if Stern and Jackson even spent 10 minutes writing this rule, it's just so narrow and inept. But, this was to be expected, remember these 2 guys are the same 2 that tried to switch out the nba basketball with a piece of sh.. ball and then tried to sell it in stores for 2 to 3 times the price of a non-official nba ball. They're crooks, they need to be held responsible by people with common sense, but apparently, they can do pretty much what they want. If the Suns lose this series, it'll be talked about for years as the year the nba screwed over phoenix. There is little doubt that close to, or tied to the best phoenix team they've ever assembled.

Phuk David Stern, phuk Stu Jackson, phuk San Antonio, and phuk everyone else you thinks this was a warranted suspension! Are the Suns cursed or what?! Every postseason it's something! Well, there's nothing left to do except hope that EVERYONE steps up tonight and smacks the Spurs in their collective mouths! A cornered animal is always the most dangerous and we've been put in this precarious position by the NBA and the San Antonio's underhanded tactics. LET'S MAN UP AND GET THIS WIN AND SHOW THE WORLD THAT NOTHING CAN STOP OUR RUN TO THE RING!!!!!!!!!!

You are just proving to everybody that your team really are dirty players who doesn't belong in the NBA. SCREW you and your fellow idiot Spurs fans. Oh, and can you find that stupid idiot that had the sign "StoudeWhiner" and ask him who's the number one whining team in the league, also tell him to screw himself too!!

We are very proud of our spurs. They are not a dirty team or a nasty playing team! We as a community are as upset as you are, in reference to Robert Horry's actions in game 4. As a city 90% of us are ashamed of Horry's actions, but get over it...
The NBA made the right call, a rule is a rule! The coaches were shown pushing the 2 players in question back off the court, what more evidence do you need to prove they were aware of the consiquences? As for the question of the 2nd quarter, there was no confrontaion, the Spurs players were simply checking to make sure their team-mate was ok, as the Suns did in game 1 when Nash and Parker ran into each other. You have to admit it may not be fair, but rules are rules. San Antonio is not whining about Horry being ejected, or being suspended for game 6 and 7.

If you ask me I think Robert Horry may have even made the biggest shot in his career...There is no doubt this gives us the edge, and isn't that what you want in the NBA FINALS?

You guys should learn how to compose the role models of Phoenix. Did you hear the language they used coming off the floor in SA, and you say they are a great team? If the Phoenix Suns would have stayed calm and collected they would have their 2 starters playing tonight.

The point is, it's their own falt for running on the floor and trying to get in the middle of something they had nothing to do with.

When you play in the NBA finals and don't expect physical toughness to be part of a game, you should not be playing at all!!!

Go SPURS Go
