The NBA has had many tough decisions to make so far in the playoffs.
In just the first round, the league has had to review a few different flagrant fouls for possible suspension.
Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks was ejected from their game on Saturday Night.
He committed a foul on LeBron James in which he struck him in the groin area.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Brooks will not be suspended for his actions.

This is somewhat of a surprise not to see Brooks suspended.
The league recently suspended Draymond Green in part because of his history with questionable acts.
Brooks has the same type of history, yet the league did not give him any further punishment.
It certainly seems like the league has it out for Green and not other players.
So now reputation don’t matter ?

The playoffs are always more intense than the regular season.
This is a reason why some players are getting caught up in their emotions.
Some fans are shocked that there was no further punishment for Brooks.

Some Lakers fans are happy Brooks was not suspended.
Good thing for the Lakers honestly. You need someone to funnel the ball to on defense. That guy can't shoot worth a damn.

You can be sure there will be plenty more flagrant fouls in the postseason.
The league will have to be more consistent with it’s punishments.
It will be interesting to see how much the league factors in the history of a player throughout the rest of the playoffs.NEXT: Jimmy Butler Joins Elite Company After Latest Playoff Win
