in the long run i dont think it will matter much if at all, but will it hurt the value right now? or will they stay the same if not rise, due to the media attention? what do you think?

IMO, they will be affected, at least in the short term. 15 games off the court is a long time to wait.

alot of "average" fans will lose alot of respect for the guy, and i think it will have an affect on the value of his cards, especially short term....the guy is a punk....a flat out cheap shot, then he runs away like a coward!! atleast have some nuggets and stand your ground and fight like a man if you feel the need to fight....dont sneek up on someone, throw a weak cheap shot, and run away scared....im not much of a basketball fan, but am a syracuse fan, and i have lost ALL respect for the guy....im sure im not the only one!!

hey, i totally agree with you, i have also lost all respect for carmelo, even before this he has always seemed like a punk to me, no offense to guys who like him, i was really hoping jefferies was gonna lay camelo out, why'd they have to hold him back :biggrin:.........

yeah, Jeffries shoulda laid him out! Seen him in college and have some Memorabilia of him (speaking of Jared). I have always hated Melo after his Rookie season. And I was reading ESPN New's ticker one day in the offseason right after Melo's Rookie campaign, and it said that he had been arrested for illegal drug use :( Second offense?

as a lifelong jeffries fan and an owner of a ton of his autos and GU... i was proud to see him chase than cheapshot punk.. that said.. this wont affect his stuff at all... things like this happen all the time... most people wont remember it in 2 years... i wouldnt sell anything of his right now but it may be a good time to invest in his stuff

the piston/pacer brawl was different. it wasnt just just players vs players like the nuggets game, the piston/pacer game had players fighting fans. i think thats why it is still talked about today

the thing about this brawl (if you can call it that....hate that term, lol....ive seen some brawls and this is more of a skirmish than anything) is that it involved a superstar who was beginning to add his name among the leagues elite (believe he was leading the league in scoring??)....ron artest was expected to jump in the stands, TO is expected to spit in people's faces, but i dont think the average fan perceived melo as this kind of person....he's had some flaws, but not someone who would pull a punk move like this.

i agree with that completely, i thought melo was a stand up guy, and i had gained alot of respect for him because of the way he played on team USA. but i really dont think this is going to have a lasting affect on him. any one else suprised thomas wasnt suspended?

imn not surprised thomas wasnt suspended... as woody page said today on around the horn.. its more of a punishment to leave him out there than let him be absent from the game

hey guys, i don't think he should of been suspended, why can't we go back to the "old school" days when refs actually let the guys play and you could get away with the "hard foul." i can't really stand watching pro basketball anymore because the refs take over the game with calling fouls left and right. i'm not saying what isiah thomas did is right, but he's "old school" and he won't let his team get embarrased (even though they were already getting blown out lol). same thing in pro football, the refs take over the game like none other with the pass interference. games are getting decided by ticky tack games in both sports! i agree with what isiah did

later :-)

uh, no

i love old school basketball and absolutely HATE stuff like this.

As if it's not bad enough that half of the NBA's top 10 players have criminal records, now you have to deal with coaches encouraging this sort of behavior?

Or Bruce Bowen trying to injure players?

It's not basketball, and it just kills an already dying professional sport.

this is TOTALLY off topic, but tradebark---I LOVE your banner thing in your siggy!

*now on-topic*

Old school is all well and good, but the refs didn't let the guys tackle eachother...c'mon. Play football if you want to do that.

With him and Iverson on the same team now, maybe he will receive the hobby attention he deserves as an awesome player.

I only see good things happening for Melo. Only HE can stop himself from being GREAT...
