Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "I think some of the disconnect is that people might be expecting Stern or Jackson to look at this from a Lakers fan's perspective, meaning Bynum needs to be tough, Beasley was talking a lot and had it coming, so just move on. The league is *supposed* to be impartial and rule in the best interest for the league and the players involved. I think they did just that and if anyone ever commits a similar foul on a Lakers player, I think we all want them to face similar punishment." -- Bay to LA
