The only real reason that Perkins was not suspended is because Boston has a thin front line already and the NBA wants to keep one of their marquee franchises in the series. It is BS! If you are a star like Kobe Bryant or a player on perennial power like Boston, you get one treatment. And if you are a journeymen point guard like Rafer Alston you get another. Alston's offensive slap was not near as the dangerous as the nearly 300 pound Perkins shoving his elbows towards Michael Pietrus's face.

Howard may want to play Perkins, but it doesn't necessarily sound like he thinks Perkins didn't deserve a suspension.

Althoug I am not in favor of the ridiculuos suspensions I do believe the league must maintain consistency, Rafer lap was not bigger than the slam that Rajo Rondo did on Kirk Hainrich or the hit on Brad Miller. Rondo was not suspended on either one now we have Perkings with an elbow on Pietrus and yet no suspension is called. Although like I said I do not agree with suspending Perkins, Rafer and Dwight should of not be suspended either, yet TNT or ESPN did not showed up any highlights of Perkins but when Rafer did it it was all over the news. The NBA is loosing credibility with their actions and poor desicion making. Making a statement that the officials make a wrong call at the end of Dallas-Denver game does not change the factthat a referee itself made the desicion of sending Dallas home early. Come NBA, call the game fairly and treat the fans with respect ($ comes mostly from us).
