    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I don't think he was specifically aiming for the eye, but he swung with a closed fist. He absolutely intended to hit him with a fist. Call it whatever you want.

    Hit him? Sure, I agree. He swung super hard to knock dudes arms off him. That’s illegal and he was properly ejected. He wasn’t going out of his way to punch that kid in the eye. I’m sure if he wanted to, he would have turned around and faced him to make sure it connected. I believe he deserves a couple games for swinging his arms like that at another player.

    Before he's out of the NBA, I'd love to see someone fucks with James Johnson. Just for NBA fans to see an actual fight and none of this strutting around face-to-face almost kissing shit.

    They will be fine. The last couple years the Denver bench has out performed Blazer starters.

    Whew! That’s good to hear.
    As long as they can beat the Blazers they’ll be fine.

    LeBron has always had elite hand-to-eye coordination. No one can argue that.

    Kind of eerie that his high school coach was Brandon Roy...

    well, there was a reason he dropped to #14 in the draft after consistently being ranked at or close to #1 in his HS days

    Definitely a fist and definitely intentional. Should be a ten game suspension, but we all know that won't happen.

    You honestly think that he was NOT swinging his arms to lose this guy, but INTENTIONALLY trying to punch him in the face? A player who has NO history of trying to hurt other players? Is it possible your hate for him and is team is blocking what little common sense you seem to have left? Honesty?

    I don't see it as a big deal. He hit him, probably intentional, miss a couple of games, and it's over. Stewart should learn from his mistakes too, hopefully. You can't keep going back for more, this ain't the wwf/wwe/tnt, or whatever they call it now.

    That dude ran through the tunnel to go get the Lakers…… Either he isn’t all there, or he was just trying to put on a show. Regardless he will miss quite a few games in my opinion. LeBron widely swinging his arms at him will get lost in the story unfortunately.

    Aren't you minimizing what he did? No bias there?
