League Looking at Incident Between KG and Andrew Bogut, Garnett Should Be Suspended
The league is said to be looking at taking further disciplinary action, and frankly, I don't see how they can't. Clearly, this not simply another case of "KG being KG," where the league can choose to ignore his actions because he's an "emotional" player. Please. The man plainly and intentionally swung at Bogut in retaliation for getting hit on Bogut's follow through.
While Bogut's contact was incidental, I don't think even the most rabid of Celtics fans would say the same for KG's slap. If Steve Nash can get a game suspension for simply walking over to break up a fight, Garnett should get at least that much for so obviously trying to start one.
UPDATE: The league has weighed in, and Kevin Garnett has indeed been suspended for one game. The suspension will be served tomorrow night when the Celtics host the Knicks.
