    Thanks owl and yarrly!

    I always love critical y fans who have clearly never played competetive sports.

    Miller is the ultimate competetitor and will not take a push in the back and not give some return love. He's right on about the league being soft too.

    btw..he should not have to give up his streak either.

    You do the crime, you serve the time. It's a good lesson for MIller.

    @ pocyUte

    Yeah, and I hear-tell the NBA is joining up with professional wrestling.

    It's a sad day when sport is no longer sport, even if it is what the fan wants.

    But he stuck him hard, and it was awesome.

    One might be prone say, "Too bad for Miller and his possibility of getting into NBA record books," but this is one time that I have to go along with league management.

    The article states, "... Miller then RETALIATED, taking a running start across about three-quarters of the court and slamming into Griffin in the lane, sending Griffin sprawling to the court" (emphasis added).

    If that is an accurate description, the punishment was deserved and Miller needs to accept his medicine and learn from his bad choice of action.

    The fact that no foul was called is irrelevant--refs repeatedly miss calls every game. So what else is new?

    Miller complains that he was not even allowed to give an explanation but, again, if the news report is accurate no acceptable explanation even exists.
