Do you think the NBA players who were suspended for fighting were punished appropriately?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 23, 2004
“It seems kind of harsh, although I haven’t seen the video. I guess they were just trying to make an example. They may also be trying to cover themselves when the lawyers suit up to sue everybody.”
“I think it was a little harsh, but obviously they deserve some kind of suspension.”
“Yes, I think they were punished appropriately. I think they need to rein in violence.”
“I think it was a little too harsh. I believe that if someone is going to hit you then you have to defend yourself. There may have been other options, but I still think that the suspensions were too long.”
