Suck it up Suns. Sorry that your players couldn't keep their cool and stay on the bench like the Spur's bench did, but this is an ironclad rule of the NBA that you can not leave to bench during an altercation. Stern had to make the decision to suspend Stoudemire and Diaw even though this is a marquee series and Stoudemire is a superstar. Stern can not take this into account when he makes a ruling like this. The decision should be the same no matter what player or what game. The only problem I have with Stern at this point is that he is incredibly gutless because he cancelled his trip to Phoenix for game five after this ruling came down probably because he is scared... now that's gutless. Sorry Suns... I guess the Spurs are not only the most hated team to watch nation wide, but now they might be just the most hated team.
Yeah, nice try Nash.
