You don't punish to punish. You punish to change behavior. Your commitment to ending throwing punches, threatening refs, and spitting on people is seen in how severe the punishment is. By these suspensions, the NBA has shown they aren't serious about the above. And other rosters will take note.

I was expecting a bit more too.
But according to the referee in the middle of it, Ingram was not going after him but Harden who was behind him.
Otherwise Ingram would have probably had double the suspension.

Another element to this as well is that none of the players involve have a history of fighting.
Rondo is a pain in the ass as a teammate but has never tried to harm anyone.
Paul barks at the refs non stop and its irritating but again has never tried to harm anyone even though he plays body up defense and sees how the refs will officiate and if they don't blow the whistle he will get physical.
That is the most emotional I have ever seen Ingram.

I would maybe have doubled the suspensions for all of them. Ingram coming in at the end with a running punch is not a good look at all but I think in his mind Paul shoved his finger into the eye of Rondo and started it all off.

Spitting is just gross so maybe Rondo and Ingram should have gotten 8 games and Paul 4 games.

If the official said Ingram was not going after him, then I walk back a little bit of what I said about Brandon. I still say the penalty was still not severe enough for Ingram & Rondo. Ingram looked like he was itching for a fight for some unknown reason. And I don't care what kind of history a player has, no one needs to be told not to spit on another person. That is a universal no-no in any society, in any profession. I have zero respect for a person who does that kind of crap.
