Full story: The Morning Call
Dwight Howard will have plenty of elbow room wherever he watches Game 6. Howard could stretch out in his hotel room and click on the TV. Full Story

This Suspension reminds me of the time when a bunch of football coaches in the lehigh valley got together and came up with a way to eliminate tough competition. The Competition was one coach Bob Stem (Phillipsburg head coach) who was coaching Bethlehem Catholic at the time. Coach Stem was kicking everyones Arse and the only way to get him to stop was to create a different league and not allow him to compete in it. Dwight Howard is just one more victim of being too good to be allowed to play. Elbows fly everynight in the NBA. Hell this guy had his eyeballs scratched by you guessed it the guy he elbowed. Sam Dalembert. I don't see this guy sitting on the bench for Scratcing Corneas. I am just amazed how this Suspension which pretty much amounts to a loss for an already depleted basketball team (as far as injuries go) doesn't raise the eyebrows of sports pundits. One positive note. Daniel Stern Gets an extra game of Adverttising and television revenue for his owners to divvy up. Next you will see Vince McMahon of the WWE running the NBA! Hey, the dude can turn a profit, and profit is what its all about now. Not who is the better team.

The elbow was flagrant, deliberate and meant to injure. The replay proves it. The rules are the rules. So shut up already. Oh yeah, nice job taking out his own teammate with a flying elbow.

That game was so one-sided from an officiating standpoint, it's pretty sad. The Sixers did not complain but Tony DiLeo felt that he should speak up about the inequities in the officiating. Any objective observer could tell that the calls were heavily in favor of the home team. I would expect the refs to make up for that tonight and give the Sixers the benefit of the home court advantage. Can't wait for Game 7! Go Sixers!
