I don’t know if I agree with this but the NBA has suspended Memphis Grizzlies guard TONY ALLEN for one game after kicking point guard CHRIS PAUL in the face during Monday night’s Grizzlies-Clippers contest…

I think the NBA has overreacted on this. Yes, it was flagrant and yes it was an unprecedented play. But was it intentional? I think not.

The league office needs to lighten up a little. Geesh.
