I'm on his side. He had beer thrown on him and was defending himself. The foul was a nothing foul and WALLACE is the one who provoked the entire thing.

It was crazy, but Artest was cool at first, trying to stay out of it and some guy had to throw beer at him.

I don't blame Artest for being mad for getting beer dumped on him, but he still has no business going into the stands and fighting. If he would have just walked away, the fan would have been ejected for life and probably arrested. Instead, Artest is now the dumbass once again.

I like Artest. I hope his album goes platinum and earns more money than his salary.

Absolutely disgraceful fans. Disgraceful.

Don't go into the stands period. Nothing good can come of it. And nothing good did.



A nothing foul! Looked like a flagrant to me.

You want to talk about players going into the stands, how about fans coming onto the court? It will be interesting to see NBA's decisions about this stuff.

A flagrant? Why, because it was Artest? It was a little bump from behind. It wasn't excessive contact in a junior high game, just a good foul.

And if someone throws a beer on Artest, I would invite him to go kick the guy's a$$.

I am with Artest....You throw a beer at me and I am going after you to. Artest's foul was nothing more than a hard common foul and Wallace got bent out of shape. My question is where were Ron Garretson and Tim Donaghy to Help Tommy Nunez Jr. No, wait my question is why was Nunez Jr. in that scrum after it got out of hand. I think Detroit in general needs to look at a lot of things. The NBA will have fun in the next week sorting this mess out.

There is plenty of blame to go around. I'm sure there will be suspensions and fines for players on both teams, arrests for fans, increased security for teams and many other things. But to say that Artest was justified in going into the stands and swinging because a stupid fan dumped beer on him is just plain stupid. He was not defending himself... It wouldn't surprise me if Artest and Jackson got arrested too.

Thumbs down That is the worst thing I have ever seen in an American sporting event.

Every fan that threw things and came onto the floor deserved to be knocked out.

I do not blame any of the players at all. I only blame the fans and the actions of the fans. The players were doing nothing different than any of us would have done if someone was throwing things at us. This was just a game, but if it was in a bar, we all probably would do the same thing. I know I would.

Peace

Wow. That's all I have to say. Unbelievable.

I don't know if Artest can be blamed for going into the stands or not. You'd think he should have control of himself - but what those fans did....

Unreal. I'm in shock.

Now wait a sec... Tommy was only in the mess trying to keep artest from losing his cool. I think he did what he should have... and Tim tried to keep artest from getting off the table. And I agree that was a nothing foul... but a fun crew to watch! (At least for 47 mins)

The NBA! It's faaaaaaantastic!!

What's the over/under on how quickly the Bad Boy merchandise comes out again? Anybody that's surprised that something like that happened just hasn't been paying attention.
