Definitely suspension. This was intentional. You don't swing your arm after getting bear hugged. Can't even make the excuse that he didn't know Lin was there.
And this, the he's had way more chances than he deserves. With a history of violent reactions like this (often with little to no provocation), I wouldn't be against Stern kicking him out of the league. The dude is, legitimately, completely ****ing insane. He's a danger to other players just by being out on the court, you don't know what he might do.
And I can't believe people are actually saying this might not be intentional, come on, that's ridiculous. He knew exactly where Lin was.
