    This is a case of the NBA (and Stern) overreating to Arenas' nature.
    That may be but under Stern, the NBA has had a history of overreacting and it's served them well.

    Arenas may be a moron, but that's why he's entertaining to me. I remember his posts on his blog, one of which blamed humans for being attacked by sharks for invading their turf, and another offering to send a jersey to anyone willing to teach him how to cheat at Halo.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    He should be banned for life for stupidity alone.

    Seriously.

    They both took the ACT, my cat got a 14, Gilbert a 2. It wasn't even close.
    Smart cat.


    As far as the current incident it sounds like both players deserve to be suspended at least a few days. It doesn't have to be at the same time (so as to not penalize the team too much) but c'mon 'stupid is as stupid does' really does sum it up pretty well.

    edit: Wait a minute, how the heck can a cat take the ACT? I'd like to see video of that.

    My cat is pretty smart but I hate watching television with him. He always wants to hit the "Paws" button.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Those are a little different, though. Homer's knife isn't likely to accidentally stab someone and Myers' grenades weren't going to explode accidentally.

    Having an undetonated Dibble in the locker room was more volatile than Myers' grenades.

    Gilbert shot as many players as Homer stabbed or Randy Myers splattered. Gilbert's is dumber because he broke a large number of laws and his own contract.
