Anyone able to find the youtube of this? Only reason I would make a thread about is that this has to be the lamest suspension ever. I saw it live. He rebounded a free throw and lobbed the ball towards the ref at the scorer's table, pretty much the way you'd throw a ball to a child. The zebra had his back turned and the ball hit the ref in the calf. I can see t'ing him up, but suspending him is just completely ridiculous. There was no intent whatsoever and it could have been ignored.

Thats pretty amazing, you wouldve though Pryz had a rasheed wallace type reputation for the nba to drop a suspension on him for that

What was the context? Was he mad about something the refs called? Looking at the score, the game was pretty clearly over, and he was on the losing side. To play devil's advocate, it's pretty clear the ref hadn't been looking for awhile, so he knew he didn't see it coming. It wasn't aggressive, but it didn't look like he thought the ref was ready to receive it.

Typical bullshit from the NBA trying to stick up for the worst officiating crew in professional sports
