Another brawlgame

I was a little bit disappointed to learn that the Indiana Pacers lost the distinction of being one of the two teams involved in the worst brawl in NBA history:

If David Stern has the power to suspend people for sheer stupidity, now is the time to exercise it on the worst offenders of the Nuggets-Knicks brawl in Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

It wasn't the swinging fists or the twisted jerseys or the 10 — ten! — ejections that stick in my head. It's the idiotic lack of control that allowed it to all transpire. Just for that, Commissioner Stern can fire at will. Double-digit suspensions all around.

But then I realized that Isiah Thomas is the coach of the Knicks, so Hoosiers still have a stake in this. Way to go, spoiled brat millionaires and their apologists.
