No suspension

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

It's unlikely that Wizards center Brendan Haywood will be suspended by NBA vice president of operations Stu Jackson after his flagrant-2 foul on LeBron James.

James said while in mid-air, he reminisced about breaking his wrist in an AAU game in Chicago during his junior year. I remember being in Chicago that summer for the pre-draft camp. Some kid named James was tearing it up that summer, but he wasn't quite on my radar yet.

I knew who he was, but he wasn't with the Cavs yet, and every media outlet in Northeast Ohio hadn't started covering all his high school games just yet. That didn't happen until his senior year, and every paper, radio station and TV station in the upper part of the state started chronicling his every move.

He was dominant on the prep level, and he's dominant in the NBA right now. He was fabulous in Monday's game with 30 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds and two blocks. The Wizards can't defend him, certainly not by DeShawn Stevenson.
