    As a hardcore Grizz fan... Russell Westbrook can go right to hell.

    Suspend him.

    Defense? Uhh, he grabbed his shoulder and tried to yank him down because he was mad about turning it over. Kinda why LeBron landed the way he did...

    That's a flagrant foul in any era.

    It wasn't completely malicious, it seemed like he wanted to yank him down with all his strength but backed off at the very last second because he realized he was about to f**k him up.

    Yeah, it was a flagrant foul- but nothing bad.

    Doesn't look like he tried to do much other than stop him from dunking the best way he could.

    It is real simple. If a guy has a clear dunk or lay up and another player intentionally fouls the guy to keep him from making the shot without going for the block give the guy who was fouled 3 foul shots. Then you take away the entire motivation for the foul to begin with.

    A player could easily tear up knee on something like that and for what? To save maybe one point on the scoreboard? But like I said if they automatically give the player 3 foul shots it takes away the motivation to even try to stop the shot. Give him the two and not risk him making three. Then whenever it is obvious the three shots become automatic. Don't even need to call it flagrant.

    You can't blame Westbrook for trying to win the championship right there. Gregg Williams would be proud.

    LeBron James is the Kanye West of basketball. He's usually really good, but no one likes him cause he's a total chump.

    A shame that he didn't (end his career).

    LeChoke and his gal pals are probably the worst thing to happen to professional sports since... um... hmmm...
