NBA Suspension Injustice sign now

To Whom it May Concern:

We are collectively shocked and appalled regarding the recent suspensions of Amare Stoudemire and Boris Diaw. There is a striking double standard apparent when situations like the hard hit Baron Davis put on Derek Fisher and Bruce Bowen's antics in games two and three go without repercussion. There is something inherently wrong when two players are penalized in such a harsh manner for doing nothing more than looking out for the best interests of a teammate. The physicality of the series has been a problem from the start and should have been addressed by the NBA before everything that transpired in game 4. The point of this is not to overturn the suspensions of the Suns players. It is obviously too late for that. What we would like, however, is an explanation from the league office regarding the rationale behind the decision that 72\% of the 22,154 fans voting on ESPN deemed unfair. It would also be interesting to hear why Tim Duncan and Bruce Bowen were not fined or suspended for doing seemingly the exact same thing during the second quarter of game 4. Instead of hiding away in your offices and canceling trips to Phoenix to visit Cleveland, I think an explanation is not too much to ask when a series of this caliber is potentially ruined. Thank you for your time. Hopefully something can be learned from this and it will not be an issue in the future.

    Appalling. Do the right thing. Swallow your massive egos for the sake of basketball. Basketball loses with this decison. The fans lose. Spurs fans lose. Only David Stern's deluded sense of self-importance gains.
