Will the NBA actually step in and suspend a big time player in the NBA Finals?
That’s what Miami Heat fans are calling for after video surfaced showing Anthony Davis purposely elbow Jae Crowder in the face during Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
After a dust-up in the paint with Jae Crowder, with both players fighting for position, both Davis and Crowder fell to the ground. Then when both players were getting up, Davis appears to hit Crowder in the face with a backhand slap.
While Davis doesn’t have the flagrant points to make it troublesome if the league deems it a technical or a Flagrant 1, the act may merit a Flagrant 2 call by the league, which is something to keep an eye on heading into Game 6.
Here’s how fans responded online:
