"This kind of thing goes on with every other NBA team" right, which is why it's important to a. have the policy b. enforce the policy c. enforce it publicly to instigate change If you don't get why it needs to change, I advise you to go to research it first.

"This thing goes on with every NBA team" is not a reason to give Udoka a slap on the wrist and move on. This incident falls under the broad parameters of a much greater workplace problem with serious (and litigious) impacts

NBA team cultures have a wide range of problematic and toxic elements and you only really gotta do some googling to see that. That's not ALL those cultures are, but it's definitely part of it when people's reputations and livelihoods as part of employment law are involved.

I would also note that the *original* report did not describe the nature of the violation. The potential suspension was absolutely newsworthy and needed to be reported. Then SUBSEQUENT reports outlined the nature of the policy violation.
