Didn't Kome hit Artest with an elbow last season in the playoffs and play the next game?...Stern is not gonna do anything to hurt his Cavs vs. Celtics series for the next round.
kobe got a flagrant 1. howard got suspended for elbowing dalembert in the head in game, and this took place during a deadball situation, it's completely indefensible. any swing making contact above the shoulders is an automatic flagrant 2.
