Stern is a joke. His constant pandering to be the #1 sport is pathetic. The NBA will never over take Football. If Stern really was concerned about the game there is only one thing he needs to do to stop fights from getting out of hand. Heavily suspend anyone who is a third man and beyond that jumps into a fight or altercation. By heavily suspend I mean 25 games. It is crazy to me that these players claim they are defending there teammates. Unless they are getting beat down two on one or Shaq just dropped kicked Earl Boykins into the 10 row their is no reason to jump into a one on one altercation. If this rule was in effect Mardy Collins and JR Smith would have had words and shoved eachother the refs would have got there and seperated them and that would have been the end of it. Mardy would have gotten his lame flagrant 1 foul and it would have been the end of it.
