Some thoughts after seeing the brawl from a different perspective:
- Ben Wallace had completely lost control and should have had a longer suspension. He had no business staying on the court that long. He did help instigate the crowd.
- Stephen Jackson and Ron Artest should have been taken out of the stadium in handcuffs.
- The Detroit franchise should have been punished more. This brawl did not come out of nowhere, yet there was no security. The NBA should have banned the Pistons from selling alcohol for a few games or maybe even make them play a few home games without any fans.
