Rockets’ Carmelo Anthony Surprised by Chris Paul 2-Game Suspension

Published

Houston Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony is a little bit shocked that his teammate, and close friend, Chris Paul only received a 2-game suspension for his fight with Los Angeles Lakers’ point guard Rajon Rondo during their game on Saturday.

“I’m actually a little shocked at the number of games that they are missing” Anthony said, according to Martin Rogers of USA Today Sports.

Anthony has a point, as the suspensions seems a bit weird given that Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram was handed a four-game ban for his role as an instigator during the fight, double what Paul, who was actually one of the main culprits, received.

“It actually works in our favor to be honest with you, I have seen it go 10-15 games before – I was the culprit of that years ago. But to see CP – I don’t want to be speaking on CP – but to see CP only get two games… I didn’t know what to expect to be honest.

“I talked to (Chris) before the game, checking in on him to check he was good,” Anthony stated. “His spirits were up, nobody wants to be suspended. I think we all know how much of a competitor he is and to be here missing this game against the Clippers after coming off a big game last night, I am sure he is disappointed. In life things happen, you got to adjust to it.”
