I'm really frustrated with these suspensions as well. Sure, I understand that "the rule is clear" - which is what we'll hear Stu Jackson/NBA state over the next week, but it really is stupid. Amare and Diaw barely even made it to the edge of the floor, didn't touch anyone, and were really just trying to support their teammate/friend after a hard flagrant foul. Horry deserves the two game suspension as far as I'm concerned, but we all know it isn't going to effect San Antonio as much as Phoenix - if at all. I really hope Phoenix is able to somehow win anyways, but I have my doubts. We'll see.
The issue with Duncan is an interesting one too. Don't get me wrong, he's an amazing player - but I do tire of constantly hearing how "quite, and workmanlike" he is, and how he "never complains" from the majority of the television announcers/analysts. I don't know of a player who whines or blankly stares after he is called for a foul more often than ol' Timmy. That doesn't take away from his talent, but the golden child label the NBA and the networks have for him is getting old. This is another example of how he can get away with something, when other players (in this case Stoudemire and Diaw) can't. Its really frustrating, and I can't think of anything more boring than a Pistons/Spurs finals matchup. Snore.
