    If I’m the Detroit Lions GM, I would take a look at Stewart as my next starting TE. Just look at the replay running over people.

    Oh c'mon bro...he backfisted him right flush in the face and he wasn't blind when he did it...he threw a punch. He just didn't get away with it...I watched it. Lebron should be suspended for that foul as it was completely uncalled for and had a serious gash to an opponent's face.....if there's ever a flagrant 2 foul called it's this one. You can't swing at a player's head with a clenched fist in this sport.

    You also seem to be implying that I have little common sense. That seems out of line; especially coming from a poster I have always respected and admired.

    On another note do you think the Kings will offer Terry Stotts a coaching job?

    ...not so fast my friend! Seems as though LeBron fans have short selective memories:

    same as in boxing n mma, you are responsible for your weapons (hands feet whatever) and he is too.
    if you swing a closed hammer-fist hard at someone are arent paying attention to what you are hitting, that isnt an excuse if you hit someone.... regardless of where.
    i dont think he should be fined longer for the blood, but the intent and action wherever the hit lands is the same.

    not like dislodged a retina or lost a testi, but i can see why dude got very pissed and saw red, cause he literally was, but if he really wanted to fight lebron, the best time was right at the very start, but he didnt - it wasnt until russ started chirping away that he got bloodlust n wanted all the drama.

    Did you not see my opinion above. He was swinging his arms widely to get that dude off him. That not allowed and was properly ejected and should be suspended a game for it in my opinion. He PURPOSELY did NOT try to hit that kid in the eye. With my own eyes I see a frustrated player trying to get somebody off him Can’t do that, but to say he intentionally tried to punch him in the eye just isn’t correct. Had he faced up and aimed, sure. You must not have read my earlier posts. This is exactly what I said before.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    He intentionally punched Stewart in the face. That's pretty obvious. No one "swings their arms" with a closed fist into another player's face to try and free their arms.

    It's unlikely he was specifically trying to get him in the eye.

    I think you quoted the wrong person, because you agreed with me.

    Don't drink at all ....that was not flailing...that was a backhanded smack to the guys face and Lebron saw where he was striking...sorry bro...and yes it does give me some joy that he's a Laker....you cant make a fist and strike someone's head in this sport...even if you think you're King something. Draymond Green would have been suspended for that move....no get out of trouble free cards should be handed out...this ain't boxing..he didn't slap the guy...he gave him a face full of knuckles.

    I thought with the video evidence there was ZERO chance folks would pretend like it was an accident. Live and learn, I suppose.

    Going to have to disagree Mr. River. I grew up playing sports like many here. In my many battles at the parks, I swung many times. I definitely needed to see where I was swinging to aim. Now I had guys hanging on me trying to get a rebound and would push and shove and swing to get them off me. There’s a difference. Bron should get popped for doing that but he wasn’t tying to hit him in the eye. Can’t tell me otherwise. You are wrong and I am right FAMS.

    Oh he didn’t accidentally swing his arms wildly to get him off off him…..he accidentally hit that dude in the eye.
