How many times is Kobe Bryant going to get away with elbowing someone in the face before something is done? There is a reason Raja Bell Clotheslined him in game 5, and he won't be the last person to retaliate in this fashion. Maybe if enough guys pop Bryant back, the league will be forced to address Kobes chronic elbowing! Although I am a firm believer in that old Bill Walton expression "Let em play! Its the playoffs!!", and I know the thinking here is that no Kobe = no ratings, I still feel that if you're going to suspend one player in a series for agressive physical behavior, maybe you should look at the player with two thrown elbows in the series already before doling out punishments.

EDIT: GRAMMAR WAS TERRIBLE, HAD TO FIX IT.

Heh, the great players get all the calls, that's the way it always has been. Between that and the fact that Kobe Bryant isn't exactly the easiest person to sympathize with, I found the Raja Bell thing to be pretty funny.
