Stephen Jackson suspended after arguing ejection

Charlotte Bobcats forward Stephen Jackson has been suspended by the NBA for one game after arguing his ejection from a Saturday game against the stephen-jacksonMilwaukee Bucks. Posted by Ben Golliver Bobcats forward Stephen Jackson was ejected just five minutes into the first quarter of Charlotte's 104-101 loss on Saturday to the Milwaukee Bucks. Jackson thought he was fouled on a drive to the hoop and, when no whistle was forthcoming, he began berating one of the officials on his way back down the court. In a blink of an eye, Jackson was teed up and tossed, much to the surprise of Jackson and Bobcats coach Larry Brown.  You can watch video of the exchange right here. Jackson went on to protest the quick hook, obviously, but to no avail.  The NBA announced Tuesday that Jackson has been assessed a one-game suspension without pay for "verbal abuse of a game official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner" for arguing the decision after he was ejected.  The Bobcats, who are 6-11 on the season, travel to New Orleans to face the Hornets on Wednesday. Jackson will serve his suspension then. Jackson is averaging a team-leading 18.1 points as well as 4.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 17 games so far this season. Wednesday's game will be the first that Jackson has missed during the 2010-2011 season.

Yeah, I agree with you on that...Something is wrong with that picture...The NBA has gotten so that you can't even look at the refs wrong, much less question a call...I don't blame the refs for tossing Jackson, but come on, there's got to be some leeway for these men.  After all, the refs are not just in control of the game.  They also control who gets to move on or move out, especially during the playoffs.

I did not see the game or any video of this incident. Steven Jackson of the Charlotte Bobcats got a technical called on him because of his mouth Fouled or not arguing the call like a child only compounded the problem. They very well could have beat the Milwaukee Bucks. Instead they take a loss. Now his team mates get to play the New Orleans Hornets with out him. These players need to shut their mouths and deal with it like a man instead of a child good job Steven.

Acairb, who is more "thug"?  The man who stands up for a friend/teammate or the man who rapes people?  Now make no mistake, Stephen Jackson's role in the "Malice at the Palace" wasn't ideal, but it doesn't compare to raping a woman like Kobe.

Everybody knows "Whackson" Jackson is a thug wanna be since the Pistons fight. But Dave Stern and the NBA League office will show him "who runnin' sh*t around here!" So keep on pushing that thug life image, SJ. Soon you'll find a seat next to your boy L.Sprewell in the "I wonder what happened to...."section of the unemployment line. It's just like a movie you see over and over and over....

He obviously got killed, then they were waiting to T him up.  If that were Kobe, the refs would have moved the line up for him, and had the offending player taken outside for some alone time with Courtland Finnegan.

Lol, Jackson argues with the ref and gets one game suspension. Andre Johnson beats someone up Cortland Finnegan cheap shots someone on the field in football and gets no suspension. Something is wrong with this picture.


There fixed it!
