what fisher did was so obviously wrong, he should be suspended. and kobe should be suspended for elbowing artest in the throat. kobe has done this before, and throwing an elbow should suspend a player regardless, like it did to dwight howard in the first-round against philly. artest should not be fined or suspended, he didn't do anything wrong.

If they threw out every guy in the NBA that throws an elbow the game would finish with the coaches and ball boys playing.
