    Are you serious? You actually think that is considered by anyone to be suspicious behaviour? If they were casing out the house across the street or parked cars- that's suspicious behaviour.
    Based on some of the comments in this thread yes I think some posters would call the cops.

    He's wrong. League can take action day after plea deal. It just depends on the league, they'll decide. Not our team or pr guys
    Sure, but the plea deal won't happen in April. April will be a disclosure court date, then the actual pleas will probably be months later. JV won't even be at the April court date in all likelihood.

    Reading some of these posts LMAO its like some of y'all think JV spear headed a mass genocide or something and he should be hung for it
    Hypocritical for several posters to point out people being over-dramatic about JV and saying he should be suspended for a couple games by comparing it to genocide.

    I always hated Stern's knee-jerk reactions and suspensions (Malice in the palace anyone?) but how can you justify a standard 5 game suspension for "Violation of NBA drug policy" for testing positive for ANY recreational drug (weed is even legal/decriminalized in some NBA states) and only a 2 game suspension for someone getting a DUI accident like Jason Kidd?!? There were multiple suspensions for flagrant fouls that exceeded 2 games over the last few seasons (Artest's elbow on Harden was 7 games).

    I think Adam Silver should be releasing a memo in the off-season sending a strong message to anyone in the NBA family that gets arrested and/or charged for a DUI, never-mind assault or domestic abuse (looking at you Dante Cunningham) will be missing out on serious game-time and money - perhaps a minimum of 10 games?

    As for condoning the DUI as a momentary loss of judgement - the same could be argued for Artest/Jackson/O'neil/Wallace, Bertuzzi, Heatley, Arenas/Crittenton, Larry Sanders, etc.

    oh shut up.

    Its a job.

    And he doesn't drive for a living, so, his personal life is his own.

    Basically what youre saying is that youd like to have the NBA become a moral conscience for society, and to set examples of its employee's, heh, ok, fine, your opinion.

    Step off the high horse otherwise. Suspensions for fighting in the crowd.... or guns in a lockerroom, or trying to decapitate a guy on the floor are high because they are on the clock. Period.



    Effin people man.

    Kid made a bad decision, and is already getting destroyed enough....what th efuck more do you need.... a compete destruction of this kid to suit your own personal morality?

    Get the fuck outta here with that Gahbage.

    CLEARLY stated that these changes should be made in the off-season as a preventative measure/warning. If you think Jason Kidd getting drunk hitting a pole and not complying with police is roughly equal to him spilling a drink on the court for an extra time out you're fucked....

    Laws/rules work because they make clear consequences that the vast majority of people use to justify not breaking said rules. Make a clear statement at the beginning of the season of considerably increased consequences and you'll find a lot more players hiring a ride home.


    Jeff Van Gundy agrees.

    But why's it up to the NBA to make those changes?

    The drink spill was an on court incident, thus the suspension.

    DUI is an offcourt issue, the NBA applies a slap on the wrist for PR reasons.

    If the DUI penalties are insufficient, then that's a problem with the justice system, not the NBA or its franchises.

    If you think a 1 year license suspension and a $1000 fine isn't enough, maybe add a week in jail?

    A little house arrest or a night in jail might make people think twice. Tack on a hundred hours of community service (talking to kids to deter them, picking trash, helping seniors/disabled, etc) and we have a deal. Someone like JV could talk to high school kids once a week in his off time.

    Its a difficult issue.

    I agree. I took Jonas over 10 pts @ 4/6 tonight and over 13.5 pts @ 10/11 should be easy, we'll see. $$$

    Seriously.

    Every bad play or game now and people are going to ask, "Is he drunk?"

    I always reserved that comment for Casey.

    Man, I saw KISS 92.5 in the scrum interviewing Masai ... Eff that Sh*t.

    Honestly, any loss we take over the next few games, will probably get blamed on Jonas at this point.

    If you watch the Lowry interview at practice yesterday, it looks like he got kind of frustrated at the scrum. It was the same question over and over.

    I would imagine it was the 'traditional' news people pissing him off.

    The regulars, like Doug Smith, Lewenberg, Wolstat, etc., it is understood they have to ask.

    But the other people who don't give a flying fudgeo outside of this act of stupidity on Jonas' part, yeah, they must be annoying as hell.

    Lol I wonder how many of those interviewers actually knew anything about basketball, let alone the Raptors. Maybe some didn't even know the players' names that weren't Jonas.

    Reporter: "So DeMar, how do you feel about Jonas being charged for DUI?"
    Lowry: "Uh, I'm not DeMar..."
    Reporter: "Sorry, my mistake. So Landry, how do you feel about Jonas being charged for DUI?"

    Yeah, the media shitstorm is one of the byproducts when something like this goes down. Baseball fans remember the Escobar eyeblack and the crap the entire organization had to go through.

    Over and above the legal ramifications and the probable suspension, the extra burden something like this puts on teammates and management is one more reason why what he did was stupid and selfish. Oh well. the team will just have to ride this out and focus on the task at hand.
