Yea, the NBA suspended him for a year. He can't attend any NBA games including the Warriors. What a stupid move by an NBA part owner.

I fear you may be right. Well, not fear, since it helps the Raps, but itís too bad.

And fined him $500K. Excessive? According to Wiki, his net worth is $2.4 billion.

Well, it was an expensive ticket that night. But he had a good seat.

As a part-owner, I think itís appropriate that he gets a hefty fine for essentially assaulting a player. Itís a sport where fans are within touching distance of the players, so you have to heavily discourage this kind of thing, especially from an insider, so to speak.

The Raptors now have their end game plan. The Warriors shooters are down to one...Curry. Keep him busy and let the others shoot off target 3's all night...easy pickin's.......Kerr is going to play his young back court and let Greene punch and shove with all he has left-which ain't much

Hasnít been in this thread, thought it was a foregone conclusion. Guess not - this is what makes sports still worth watching, seeing the current dynasty brought to its knees... Everyone thought Golden State / Houston was the ďreal finalsĒ - maybe it was actually Toronto / Philly coming down to a miracle last second corner jumper that bounced FOUR TIMES on the rim before dropping in? Iím a Sixer fan, but Kahwi is the dominant guy in this yearís playoffs and he deserves everything thatís coming his way - the guy is amazing and a real joy to watch.

Kawhi Leonard was the difference last night, again. What a great pickup this year. Not sure where he'll sign in the off season but getting rid of a fan favorite player like DeRozen was a bold move by management but given what DeRozen does every year in the playoffs the right call.

Back to Toronto for Game 5 and a potential Finals clinching victory!

Everyone but Durant back last night, Toronto still dominated. But yeah, box and one has been a great move by Nurse...

That was game 5, correct? That must have been a devastating ending with Golden State coming back to win the way they did. But ultimately the outcome didn't matter because ...

Toronto wins NBA Championship!!
Wow, what a game 6. Lead changes and close right to the end. Anyone watch the game?
