Rafer Alston Suspended

Alston house
Grab a piece of the pine, son… you've been suspended one game.  I'll reiterate how that screws Orlando because they're starting game 3 now with perhaps the worst point guard left in the playoffs trying to guard perhaps the best point guard in the playoffs.  Have fun with that.

    So the league is growing some cajones. Bout time. Rafer and Derek – didn’t think they had it in em.

    as it should be.

    Allston wasn’t exactly lighting the court on fire so I’m not expecting too much of a drop off. What he did was tame compared to the Houston and Lakers game, but it was a cheap shot-not even an attempt on the basketball or a play. To be honest, I’d rather have Allston suit up and play so we don’t have to continue to hear Magic fans complain about how “dirty” the Celtics and Rondo are and how they get away with everything. KID’S 23! Far from superstar status. Rondo’s taken his fair share of hard fouls dating back to last season and all of a sudden because people start paying attention to how good he is, everyone’s out for blood. If it was Scal, no one would give a hoot. But because Rondo’s putting up triple doubles…If Miller makes his freethrows…Still hearing the complaints about the Hinrich tussle are comical as well. Guy locked up Rondo and boxed him out to the 3pt. line as Rose already had the rebound and was past half court. Really? Fans forget they are watching PLAYOFF basketball. A tussle warrants a suspension? No, I think fans just use any and every reason to sit the best players who have the most impact on games because they want to be gifted into a win. What’s even worse is that Magic fans aren’t even addressing what Allston did, they’re just pointing to Rondo-totally different circumstances against a different team.

    I saw a couple of Magic fans, anyway, readily admit that Alston’s hit was very stupid, deserved punishment, etc.
    You have to feel sorry for Magic fans. They expected Nelson, ended up with Rafer Alston. That’s like… oh, I dunno… expecting Kevin Garnett and getting Big Baby instead? Well… except that worked out tolerably ok. Alston for Nelson… no way.

  • Anon

    Nelson is overrated. 15 PPG and what like 6-7 assists? mediahype much?

  • zippittyay

    out of curiosity, who is gonna back up Anthony Johnson? No one even shows up on the depth chart and AT is a little old to be playing 48 mins.. :)

  • rcry

    The Rondo-Johnson matchup looks wonderful on paper, but Rajon has a tendency of not bringing his A game against bad PGs…

  • Baron

    Yawn…no good playoff basketball tonight….Cavs blowing out the hawks….the cavs have faced no adversity this season or playoff, and have the easiest run to the finals then any team – obviously, they did earn it, but its somewhat embarassing. round 1 facing a team that had completely given up and no iverson, round 2 facing a team thats entire goal coming into the season was to get homecourt in the first round and make it to the 2nd round – well that was accomplished, now theyre pretty much done.
    whoever they get in the ECF is decimated by injury
    They just arent as good as they look…they couldnt do this to any of the teams still playing out west, or us, especially if healthy

  • baron

    not to mention the hawks are also without Horford and Marvin Williams…yawn

  • Len

    Do the cavs have to celebrate like they won a championship after everything they do? god they are extremly immature and annoying

  • NineSevenEight

    Think they’re immature now? Imagine what’s going to happen if/when they actually do win the championship…

    tyron lue, JJ reddick (courtney lee will be back)

  • rajging

    yes he is overrated, big time…he should have never made the all-star game this season, that was an epic joke. before this year he was a consensus scrub. the midget does nothing but shoot the ball well, hes the opposite of rondo

  • baron

    Yawn
    Stat of the year
    Lebron averaging 1 foul in over 30 minutes of playoff action….he gets near the rim and the whistle is instantly blown…he hacks, pushesh and slaps on the other end, you get a tech if you even suggest hes fouling.
    the NBA pampers lebron so much, its beyond obvious and disgusting, they do not even come close to doing this with kobe…im losing respect for lebron

  • Atomic Man

    My god I cannot stand reading Baron’s comments, they are the stupid things I have ever read. Also, please stop saying “Yawn”, that is so annoying.
    The Celtics just keep getting luckier and luckier and catching breaks after breaks, lets see if they can actually earn a win this playoffs instead of being handed them.
    According to Baron the Celtics have never commited a foul ever and all the other teams and players get special treatment- Get your head out of your ASS or Rondo’s ass wherever it is.
    Your season is over after Orlando, so enjoy while you can SUCKAS
