James Posey Suspended

James Posey of the New Orleans Hornets was suspended for last night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs because he threw a ball at a NBA referee this past Friday. Posey was immediately ejected from the game this past Friday against the Knicks and I have to admit I’m surprised he didn’t get suspended for more than just one game. We all have wanted to throw a ball at a ref, but unlike Posey we had enough sense not to follow through.
