HOW WILL WE RESPOND? Watch and listen, also, for how people respond to this as violence.
- Will Ben Wallace be excused for his two-handed shove in the face of Ron Artest after a hard foul?
- Will Ronnie be justified or condemned for going into the stands to chase down a fan who threw a beer bottle at him as he lay on the official scorer's table trying to keep out of the shoving match between other players?
- How will Stephen Jackson, who went into the stands with Artest with fists flying, be viewed?
- Will fans be accused or excused for throwing cups and bottles and beer all over the Pacers? Will any of this be called for what it is?
- What will be our take on the violence--no matter who is considered "at fault?"
