    I just finished watching Pardon the Interruption on ESPN, and they showed a slo-mo video from (I guess) Game 1 of LeBron following through on one of his shots with an elbow to Webber's chest, Kobe-style. Both Tony and Wilbon said that LeBron should have been suspended for it, since Kobe was for both of his elbow-follow-through incidents this year. But I don't remember that play AT ALL from Game 1, nor do I think it's been mentioned anywhere here on the forum yet (if it has, I missed it). So I'm confused--did it happen, and we all just totally missed it?

    If nobody noticed, I would think it was too insignificant. And if LeBron would be suspended, Cavs would actually have to play and make shots and that could spell trouble for Pistons.

    No elbow tape on You Tube yet.......................

    If an elbow is thrown and it doesn't make it to You Tube, did it really happen ??

    It did look pretty rough, and CWebb crumbled to the ground. It wasn't quite like the shots to the face that Kobe dished out, but it wasn't a light tap either. But it's very weird that literally NONE of us had noticed it!

    It's this one, right? It doesn't look much different from the stuff that got Kobe suspended.

    I wonder what will come out of this, if anything at all.

    I think C-Webb should have played the Manu role on this one. Stay on the floor and pretend you are unconscious for a while.

    I don't think it would've attracted any attention. He looks like that when he's in the game anyway.

    In hockey, players used to dig at an old scar to register bleeding with their complaint.

    I don't have a problem with LBJ elbowing Webber in the head. I have a problem that if Webber did it, or when Kobe does something like that, it is a suspension but it won't be one for King Hero.

    90% of the reason I don't like this guy is the special treatment he gets. It's hard to like someone with a silver spoon. It's hard to feel sorry for a guy with a silver spoon. And worst of all, it's hard to identify with a guy who gets free passes.

    I hear ya but should you direct more venom at the League or LeBron? It's not as if LeBron is gonna say, "Yeah, I get special treatment. Make it stop."

    . . . and it's hard to align to a sneaker agent too.

    Re: I want Lebron suspension

    I sure don't remember endless replays during the game itself. I recall Webber getting up off the floor with that pained look he often seems to have these days, but no mention of what might have caused it.

    Incompetent broadcasting or biased broadcasting?

    Not sure it was either. It was such a quick incident. She looks like she might be falling over laughing too afterwards, so maybe she was joking with him. But imagine this, LeBron turns it over, Marv goes to look at the stat he was handed to comment on turnovers, and Kerr looks at Marv to make a comment, and neither are looking at the floor or the monitor during the split second it happened.

    Plus an official was standing right there, so I don't know how he would have missed this if it was malicious.
