Is there a double standard in the NBA regarding fouls, suspensions, and fines? Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Clippers thinks so. After the league handed out a $25,000 fine to Serge Ibaka for his groin shot to Blake Griffin, the league has been speaking out. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade both think Ibaka should have been suspended.
If you didn't see the punch, check it out here. Whether Ibaka intentionally went for the groin area or not does not matter, he punched Griffin intentionally and was not tossed from the game. And now, after the league has reviewed the film, he was not even suspended.
Much like the NCAA's punishment system, it seems the NBA does not have clear guidelines for punishment. Ibaka got away with a cheap shot, and $25k is a drop in the bucket for these players.
