would anyone trade Carter for Artest + Bender?
In real life: maybe, after Artest's suspension length is known.

you cant suspend pure indiana players... afterall, ben wallace did start it all... he shoved artest by the neck which started it all.sfu_lifer wrote:Holy crap!
These are some pretty severe punishments:
Artest - suspended for the year (there! he can have all the time he wants now to work and promote his rap album)
Stephen Jackson - 30 games (I think this is well deserved, he was looking for a fight)
Jermaine O'Neal - 25 games (same, he clocked the Mexican pretty hard amongst other things)
Ben Wallace - 6 games (kinda harsh considering he didn't throw a punch)
plus one game suspensions for those who did leave the bench
I'm surprised they're not fining the Pistons organization for having pretty poor security personnel.

artest should have let the foul go, ben wallace shouldnt have overreacted.
artest being suspended for the year is harsh considering he probably didnt do as much damage as stephen jackson and o neal.
o neal absolutely clubbed the "mexican" in the face... the security guard behind him probably felt it!
stephen jackson got the dude in the black shirt harder than artest did...
either artest gets less, or all 3 of em are out for the season. these suspensions are out of line...
you cant blame artest for everything... he was chillaxing on the table (relate him to Terrell Owens, same kinda character) and he got stuff thrown at him. its not like he randomly beat people to the ground for no bloody reason.

I think the NBA should suspend him for the entirety of the 2005-2006 campaign as well.
Stephen Jackson/Jermaine O'Neal should get 41 games apiece; half the season is more like it.
One dude in my pool has Artest and O'Neal; he had fought from the basement up to about 8th/12 teams...back down he goes.

Even after he pocketed millions, Artest applied to work at Circuit City, so he could get the discount.
