10 years ago today, the NBA hit rock bottom when Metta World Peace, known at the time as Ron Artest, went into the stands after being pelted with a cup thrown by a Pistons fan.

Artest and the Pacers were blowing out the Pistons by 15 points with less than a minute to go when the gigantic brawl took place.

Artest was suspended for the rest of the 2004-05 season, while Stephen Jackson got 35 games, Jermaine O'Neal 25 and Anthony Johnson 5. Reggie Miller, who did not play that night, was suspended one game for leaving the bench during the initial scuffle between the players.

On the Pistons side, Ben Wallace who overreacted to the foul by Artest, was suspended for only 6 games. Chauncey Billups, Elden Campbell and Derrick Coleman were each given only one game having left the bench in the initial scuffle.

In the years since, I have always wondered how far the NBA has moved on since this incident, and I personally think they're on the right track.

Last night I saw Dumb and Dumber To, and all I have to say is...

I like it a lot!

With the NBA tipping off this week I will make a few predictions...

The Lakers can't do better than 7th in the Western Conference. They need to be more patient with Kobe Bryant, especially with the healing of his injuries from last season. Expect rookie Julius Randle to come off the bench as a backup.

Age will catch up to the Spurs down the stretch.

Charlotte fans will pack the Time Warner Arena for every Hornets game.

The Heat might cool down since LeBron left to return to Cleveland. Expect Miami to finish no better than 3rd in the East.

Speaking of LeBron, he and Kevin Love should be a lethal one-two punch for the Cavaliers.

Another owner might get kicked out of the league, most likely Orlando owner Richard DeVos, given his history of homophobia. Hopefully, the league will be okay if this does not happen again this season.
