    Via Oregon Live-
     “I took two shots,” Miller said. “I took two shots and I gave a shot. So I told the ref out there, ‘We can call that even now.’ He didn’t make the call and he was looking right at it. So I get suspended for that? I’ll take a flagrant foul. But a suspension? It wasn’t justified at all.”
     Miller said the suspension “shows how soft the league is” and confirmed that “the rules don’t apply for everybody.” The 12-year NBA veteran was upset for several reasons — the disrespect shown to him by the league and the “favoritism” given to young players chief among them — but admitted the suspension was especially tough to swallow because it snapped his consecutive games played streak at 632.

    “There was no consideration for what I’ve accomplished in this league,” Miller said. “(There is) favoritism towards the young players. I delivered a shot. And when I delivered it, I was hoping the ref would call a flagrant foul or a foul. They ignored what he did two times. Two times. And I let it pass. The referee didn’t say nothing.
     “These young guys get treated so well. (Boston forward) Kevin Garnett said the same thing, I don’t know if it was last year or this year, but these young guys get treated like they are proven players. They get treated as if they are All-Stars or All-NBA players already.”

    andre said he wishes he could of hit him harder.
    what else more do you need to see that this was a childish mistake, he is upset because he was caught in the moment of revenge, of anger, and he wasnt thinking about his streak or the team, just him and how hard he was gonna run into Blake.
    Blake is a great player, who is probably pissing some people off right now by how dominant he is playing, that added with some pushes , light pushes at that, and dre loses it.
    like i said before if it were any other team, and any other player in andre's position, i believe most of you would show no sympathy, the fact that he is a member of your favorite team, doesnt mean he is allowed to get away with cheap shots filled with aggression.
    dumb idea, what if it were a playoff game, game 7, and hes out for game 8?

    Tay C... right on the head. Thank you. If it was in the other direction... and someone pushed andre blatantly to the ground, everyone here would be screaming their heads off calling for a 20 game suspension.  But hey, thats how life works I guess

    negative, if dre was being a (language) id understand him getting a love tap. and if blake got hit by another player in the league that player would become my favorite player behind the blazers. example i hate dwight howard with an undying passion, if he knocked blake out with a well placed elbow I'd buy him dinner. blake not only gives light pushes, he hits the ball or "accidently" kicks it after EVERY made shot so his team can get back on D. his delay of games are blatant cheating and are never called. he's a sneaky, sly, (language) that can't play a real game of ball without cheating. russel westbrook is dirty on the rebounds but he's not near the (language) biffon is. i watched him elbow miller multiple times this season and miller never reacted, so (language) is obviously provoking quite a bit to get such a reaction. miller is justified in his actions and i hope (nickname not allowed) gets knocked out many more times this season until he quits being a little (language) or (seriously? WAY out of line- DHawes22).

    You can't keep shoving somebody in the back. That's cheap, and I understand that Miller had finally had enough. If Miller wasn't a nice person, he'd have slugged the guy instead of the hockey check that we saw in the response from Andre.

    Did he deserve a suspension that broke his consecutive games streak?
    You bet he did, Dre straight nailed that kid! 
    Dealt a heartbreaker to Clippers fans, who love Griffin's toughness and swagger. I personally like Blake Griffin's game. I'd yet to see him being a mean bully until the game in Portland. It's a lesson learned, don't play like a musclebound moron against Andre Miller.

    if i'm to be annoyed at anyone for dre getting suspended i'm going to be annoyed at the refs first off for not calling the push in the back on griffin. i'm going to be annoyed at griffin for actually pushing in the back of a player he doesnt need to because hes clearly more altheletic than dre is... not even a question. i'm also going to be annoyed at dre for the move.

    now even though i thought it was the funniest thing i've seen in awhile. watching a 4 getting put on the wood by a 1. it still was the wrong thing to do.

    stern should suspend the refs in that game too. you cannot tell me they didn't see the push by miller. or by griffin his two shoves.

    if you're going to call the little push that brian cook did on joel a flagrant 2. then you need to actually grow a set and blow your whistle on griffin and miller for their actions.

    but still funny watching a 1 put a 4 on the wood.

    Honestly all i can say is the refs have forgot the the things that have made the NBA what it is. Larry Bird wouldn't have played very many minutes because he would have been thrown out of the game after a couple plays. Maurice Lucas was the same way! Also the new Technical foul rules are complete idiotic. fouls are called too much in to days NBA basketball and it makes the game slow and boring. The refs and David Stern need to look back and wonder why the NBA isn't the 1st or even the 2nd most watched sport in america. TOO MANY FOULS!

    You make a good point, but the thing is, as said, Blake Griffin has been a bully in the post. And we all know Dre fairly well.  He's not known as a dirty player, and did a fairly dirty move.  Obviously some things were said, and some of Griffins actions were pissing Dre off.  Things could of been handled more seriously, but I also think Dre was trying to teach him a lesson, because a lot of people get away with being dirty until someone fights back.  Especially Garnett.

    Love and hate always create illogical debates as well.  It's perfectly understandable why people are mad and sticking up for Dre while being mad at Griffin, as are Clipper fans being mad at Dre and proud of Griffin,  but there's no win-win in this situation, both players were wrong.  Dre could have handled it better, but Griffin shouldn't be able to get away with some of the things he does.  He already goes to the line as much as Durant, and you already know how I feel about Durant and the officiating with him.

    However, I am proud that Dre at least said something, and I agree with him.  I've played basketball where I've gotten bloody noses from elbows, ankles twisted, and knees smashed.  All of them were accidental, even if it stopped me from playing for some time.  In today's NBA, they're there for the fans too much, and the fans have a lot of say it what happens.  They all want fairness even if it wasn't fair.  I can guarantee that Miller would have been accessed only a Flagrant 1 had Cook not have been suspended/ejected.

    Yeah you must have a pent up aggressive syndrome or something because i dont know who in their right mind let you get away with thinking you know what basketball is about......
    Its about Shooting, rebounding, the action of team work......

    Not, revenge, violence, or poor sportsmanship, and if you honestly believe that you can defend Andre, then you might as well defend those three actions as well, and supporting those in sports, will not get you far.
    Yeah, Rasheed didnt like that they wouldnt let him break the rules anymore, not to mention that most fans utterly hate him for his lack of profession he displays in this sport.
    Portland may be behind Andre in this, but the rest of the nation is behind the NBA on this...

    Blake Griffin Displays exactly what it takes to be successful in the NBA, to come in, and not be punked by the seniority some of these guys show. He is a great offensive and defensive basketball players, he knows this game. So he pushed Andre, it doesnt matter who was there, they were in his way. Perhaps Dre doesnt like Griffin, as alot of other NBA players, how can u be sure Blake did not know that, and he was sending a warning to Andre "keep talkin and watch what will happen" now Griffin is young, and has already displayed some aggressive post play emotions, but look at his team and his situation, any one could get angry, not that its right, but its could be understandable to "as why". . Griffin isnt protected by anyone, to believe that, well, its easy to see that its clearly anger from the lack of production this team has shown this season, and how some other teams have different luck.
    Really. The fact of the matter i that Dre is a veteran and should know better, the fact that he went through with that action, and further mad some very questionable media comments, just shows that perhaps Andre doesnt really want to play anymore......

    I don't think that Andre running into and pushin Blake down was right but I think it is odd that they didn't even call a foul on the play and later do the suspension. There was so much pushing and shoving that game if all things are equal there should have been a few more punishments awarded. 

    What about the neck hold Dwight Howard had on Rudy last night? Seemed a bit extreme for just a regular foul.

    I just think it would be nice to see some consistency with calls etc- I have to wonder if it had been Kobe, LeBron, Kevin Garnett who did what Andre did would they have recieved equal punishment?? Unfortunatley I have my doubts that they would have..
