The NBA is no longer messing around with blows to the head — hit a guy on the head and you can expect an ejection and fine.
Charlotte’s Marvin Williams can tell you all about it. He went for the hard foul on the Knicks’ Lou Amundson Tuesday night in the Knicks’ win and was given a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected for his troubles. This was a retaliatory play for a hard foul on the other end, so don’t expect a lot of leniency from the league.
This will get Williams a fine (probably, predicting the NBA’s rulings on fines is like predicting a roulette wheel — there’s a lot of chance involved).
