They had no choice but to eject him, its the rules. He will probaly get fined and suspended for it. I can't blame Davis but you just can't go into the stands.

I can't blame him either. If that was my wife and family I would do the same. As stated on ESPN Sport Center last night, there should be some provisions inplace by the NBA where the family member of the players could be in a more secure area to somewhat deflect confrontation like this in the future.

Well, they were talking to people at the game and it sounds like his wife was as much to blame. She kept putting a finger in the guys face and he kept saying get your finger out of my face!

Maybe she should be banned also?

ESPNews showed a updated video of ths scene and it showed the wife was pointing her finger at the dude and it looked like she was talking trash to him. I really don't know what to think and I think they NBA doesn't know either. It will basicly be a he said she said kind of deal.

I can understand what Davis did but the league had to suspend him. 5 games is really light compared to the suspensions handed out last year. You can understand why he did what he did but the league can't have any exceptions for players going into the stands. If that was the case a player could go into the stands beat a fan mercilessly then say, hey he threatened my wife. The line is drawn, I don't think this incident was as serious as Davis took it and he knows the rules, he knew he was going to be ejected and suspended. I feel a little bit for him but I agree with the league, you have to have a no tolerance rule for this sort of incident.

This is very unfortunate, and finfansince72 nailed it down. The league has to do something, however Davis didnt touch the guy, and if I was in his place I would have done the exact same thing suspension or not.
It is unfortunate that wifes and kids cant go watch Dad at work. Regardless of the guy started it or Davis' wife started it, the family is a target no matter where they go.... Unfortunate indeed.

Why of course it's possible of him doing so. I've pretty much heard both sides of the stories and I'm still clueless of what really happened. Either the wife was just talking a storm of **** to a fan from the other team, or the fan was teasing the family about have her husband playing for a team that hasn't won too many games.

Of course he should be suspended. And more then 5 Games. It should be TEN games. People can't come to the courts at anytime, and players shouldn't go in the stands at anytime. Maybe if this was before the whole fight that occurred last year, I'd be okay with it...but its not. This is post-artest, and therefore the punishment should be large so players know not to go in the stands....I don't blame him for his actions, but there will be consequences..

There is the LETTER of the law vs the SPIRIT of the law. Rule/Law is no running into the stands (hence going after fans). Davis wasn't going after any fans throwing punches or throwing his weight around. This is NOT what the rule was intended for.

Okay, so If he want up there and some crazy fan went and hit him? Who's fault would it be? It would be his...he is not allowed in the stands. I understand he was trying to protect his wife, but......rules are rules.

And the rule is no going into the stands period. Just like fans don't step onto the court.

If a fan took a shot at him when Davis was clearly no threat to anyone, then no it wouldn't be the fault of Davis! :shakeno:

This is the same city where a bunch of wild fans ran out on the field and attacked the Royals 1st base coach. So, being on HIGH ALERT in that city with your wife in the stands having a "situation" I don't blame Davis one bit. The NBA looks bad on this one. This wasn't Artest and Jackson running into the stands swinging at everyone.

You are failin' to release that Davis is not allowed up there. That is what security is for. I don't blame him either for the action he took...but the consequence should have been harsher. Players should not be in the stands at any cost.

Really? The interviews of the two fans I saw said the man was beligerent & Mrs. Davis was very calm. He's not going to win anything. Battery? Come on, she could get him for assault. Slander? Yeah his reputation took a million dollar hit in all this.

The rule is no running into the stands, yeah like the Pacers did last year to take swings at the fans. THAT IS WHAT THE RULE IS MEANT FOR!!!!!!!! Davis didn't go into the stands and started throwing punches at anyone and everyone. BIG DIFFERENCE!

You want to stop all of these problems its easy. Only 1 sale of alcohol per person at these events. Maybe 2, but no more. And all sales are stopped after halftime, in fact I would stop them just before halftime!! Come up with a stamp system that shows up under a dark lamp or somethnig. Everytime you buy a beer, you get stamped and aren't allowed to buy another that night.

The problem isn't the players!!!!! It's these drunken fans who are out of control and the arena security which are 66 year old men and women who are retired and work for $7.95 an hour as a part time job who can't prevent or stop anything!

The fans are OUT OF CONTROL! And the majority of fans actually think they are part of the game or part of the show! Just because you buy a ticket it doesn't mean you can yell and scream anything you want to whoever you want.

No, he shouldn't of been punished at all. Family is more important than a basketball game and the NBA's ****ty rules. To tell you the truth, David Stern deserves a bigger punishment than anyone. He should be slapped for punishing Antonio Davis. Would you sit there and watch your wife in an argument with a man, who could potentially put his hands on her? Not me. I'd beat the hell out of any man who raises his voice at my woman.

And you'd go to jail for it. Thats a pretty weak example. Davis violated a straight up rule, he got a light suspension, the situation is over. Get over it. David Stern runs the league the right way.

Exactly. There are consequences for actions you take. What you do may be the right action, but it can cost you big time. Davis violated a rule...therefore he should be punished. I think it should have been a little harsher...but eh, doesn't matter.

how about the fan, what's his punishment? That's the problem, fans can say whatever they want whenever they want and get away with it. Which causes this mess to begin with.

It's a tradition to talk junk to strangers sitting near you that you don't even know????? What society did you grow up in! You might want to move to Europe where those soccer riots kill about 100 people at each event! You might enjoy that kind of animalistic atmosphere.
