KG's flagrant downgraded

KG's flagrant downgraded: The NBA downgraded Garnett's flagrant foul against Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough. Originally deemed a flagrant-2 -- leading to Garnett's automatic ejection in a lopsided game -- the league downgraded it to a flagrant-1 upon video review. Garnett landed a solid right hand to Hansbrough's mug trying to strip the ball near the basket in the fourth quarter of Boston's win Jan. 4. With tempers flaring a bit, the refs seemed to diminish the chance of an incident by sending Garnett to the locker room early.

With the downgrade, four Celtics players each have one flagrant point on the season in Garnett, Rondo, Collins and Sullinger. Suspensions don't begin until five flagrant points are accrued during the regular season.



It was  a bad call, and in true NBA form they downgrade a call that send KG packing. What if that was a close playoff game?

Shawn, I have to disagree on this one. I think KG clearly hauled off and hammered Hansborough in the face. I don't think he was going for the ball. Maybe one could say that he was flailing at the ball, and didn't mind hitting Hansborough in the face. That could be the generous way to look at it.

I thought KG went for the ball. The league got it right almost. It was an accident.

Well, it wasn't a Dwayne Wade thug moment, by any means, but I'd say KG punched the guy. Pretty obvious I thought.
