Arguments rage over whether or not KG had a "right" to shove the ref's arm away in the Mavs game, etc. And Cs fans are mostly happy that KG's not going to be suspended. I think we're missing the main point: KG is rapidly slipping out of control, hurting his team and likely to get worse now.
This was not the first recent incident involving KG-running-amok, and it wasn't even the first incident IN THAT GAME (prior to the ref incident, they showed KG purposefully seeking out and fouling Chandler -- as if he'd lost contact with the reality that there are cameras out there). Plus, KG DID commit a flagrant foul according to the NBA (assessed after the fact), which the refs failed to call. Had they called it, it would have been EVEN WORSE for his team. As it was -- that tech cost the team a chance to tie the game in the end (final margin = 4 points).
Altogether, it's the Celtics who are likely to suffer most from the fact that the NBA did NOT suspend KG. Maybe that would have brought him back to reality. Now, he will probably continue his crazy ways -- never apologizing, never even RECOGNIZING that what he does is wrong, that these are OTHER PEOPLE he's shoving around, and potentially injuring. (What's the word when you're egocentric about your whole team?)
I fear KG's heading down a very negative path. Soon, he will tick off not only most NBA fans, and not only the referees... but his own fans too. More important (to most of us, anyway) is that all these ridiculopathies could push #18 just out of our reach (fouls, techs, referee bias).
So stop it already, KG. Grow the hell up.
