Chris Anderson Suspended for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals

Chris "Birdman" Anderson caused a ruckus during Game Five when he body checked Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough to the ground, shoved him again, and then kept talking trash as he had to be forced from the court.

His foul has now been upgraded to a flagrant 2 and he has been suspended for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday.

The popular sentiment has been that the refs were wrong with only issuing a flagrant one against Birdman. he should have been ejected. As it turns out the NBA commissioner, David Stern, agrees:
“I do think he should have been ejected. I looked at the replays and, it seems to me, there was no immediate push or shove of him, he just hauled off and knocked down Tyler Hansbrough. I don’t know what he was doing. And then he pushed him. And then he did not go gracefully to the bench.”
Stern also alluded to a review being conducted and further action being taken, and apparently wasted no time in making it happen.
