The Wisdom of Stern.

NBA referee Joey Crawford was suspended indefinitely by the league for his conduct after assessing a totally bous technical foul and ejecting Tim Duncan of the Spurs from a game. Crawford is reported to have challenged Duncan to a fight, which certainly calls his judgment into question.

So far, so good. Officials need to be accountable just like every one else in sports. They're athletes, too-good ones. Now comes the part of Commissioner David Stern's law and order policies I don't get.

Duncan was fined $25.000 for the ejection which Crawford's suspension makes clear was an injustice. My refs. May they be always in right. But right or wrong, my refs.

Way to split that baby, I mean, basketball in half, Mr. Commissioner.
