Can he serve the suspension while he's in the inactive list?

Or does that mean the Mavs can only play 11 players?

NBA seems like they will not compromise on that rule.

And for good reason. I'm sure the NBA will now add coaches, coaching staff, and Crazy Drama Queen Owners to the list of people who can't go into the stands.

I believe that means they must go with 11 players. I don't think he can serve it on the inactive list.

No, they can still dress 12 players. All the suspension means is that Mbenga cannot be in the arena for six games.

Reading Mav Fan's reaction is hysterical. Six games is the final proof that the NBA is conspiring against them.

E-mailer Joe S. outraged over Mbenga suspension:

As if the calls in game 4 didn't already lead Mavs fans to believe that there's a conspiracy to eliminate us from the playoffs, now we find that Mbenga is suspended for 6 games for walking into the stands while inactive! May not have much impact on this series but it certainly will if we have to face Miami in the Finals. Guess the league already has it fixed so it will be Miami and they need to guarantee us at least one loss in the first few games!

Does the Mavs Fan shop sell any non-NBA approved items? I'm not buying anything with the NBA logo for the next year and will boycott anything having to do with the NBA except where it involves the Mavs. The players need to demand outside arbitration in these situations since the league is not capable of being impartial.

My Boss was in the next section over and said that 2 Phoenix fans were standing up and cheering and Avery's wife told them to sit down in a rude way. The girls pretty much told her where to go and Avery's wife snapped like a little general. She pushed them and it kinda looked like she landed a punch. They actually escorted the 2 Phoenix fans out and then found out the whole story. They are now pressing charges.
