I Know Everything - Chapter 540
Chapter 540: Think of something.
Chen Huan didn’t feel upset or annoyed.
There wasn’t a shred of doubt that the kick he had given out was deliberate.
If it weren’t for his great strength and that doing too hard would kill Plumlee, he wouldn’t have only used 10% of his strength.
He had never thought that Plumlee would be such a sore loser so it was already too late for him to do anything when he saw Plumlee’s actions.
He wasn’t the real Lu Xiaofeng or Chu Liuxiang, how could he be able to turn and dodge it while mid-air?
So he could only try to get a good landing posture and give a kick to Plumlee while he was at it.
Then it really hurt when he fell.
Luckily, he didn’t injure his bones or joints.
Chen Huan was wondering whether the Good Lord knew that he would be fouled a lot when he came to the US so upgraded the bones and muscles strengthening decoction.
Chen Huan was furious after he was being rudely pulled up like that.
If he was any other guy, he would’ve already been injured but he still violently pulled him up like that?
So he just grabbed his neck and lifted him up.
The reason why Chen Huan was so strong was thanks to the Big Grappler Hand upgrade given by the Good Lord that was why his strength increased by another level again.
It seemed this dog system really foreseen it!
He was still wondering what could possibly happen in the US after he received so many upgrades.
Fortunately, Chen Huan didn’t lose his mind, otherwise Davis would have left this world with just a simple twist.
The referee interference also calmed Chen Huan so he threw Davis to the ground.
At that time, Chen Huan also understood it would be inevitable for him to be ejected from the game.
There was no referee or league rules that would allow him to stay on the court after such actions.
He felt a bit bad but didn’t regret it.
A man had one long thing more than a woman, and wasn’t that thing that made a man not back down when encountering some situation?
He wouldn’t go provoke other but when someone provoked him, what the f̲u̲c̲k̲ would he be afraid?
The fact was many neutral NBA fans began to like Chen Huan for his smooth and cool clap back.
It wasn’t popular in the US to be patient to an irritable fellow or take a step back and endure it.
Take action if you don’t like it.
This was what American like.
Chen Huan’s straightforwardness pleased a lot of people.
However, Chen Huan still felt bad.
This was a game where he would continue to get big stats and crush the Blazers.
Of course he knew without him, Kobe and Iverson, who had already rested for a whole month and drank the decoction, could beat the Blazers.
But the problem now was he didn’t know how many games he would be suspended.
It would be fine if he was suspended for 3 games but if it was 5 games, it would consume Kobe and Iverson energy too much and go against their planning of resting and rejuvenating their strength.
But the matter already happened and he couldn’t just lament on it so he must think of something.
Before he was taken to the hospital by Kupchak for a checkup, he called Professor Devries.
Devries said he would certainly find someone to put pressure on the NBA so they wouldn’t punish Chen Huan heavily.
Then Chen Huan also found Robert of the University of Chicago for the same request.
But within 5 minute of hanging up the phone, Devries called back.
“Oh my god, Chen, why did you go play in such a dangerous sport? What if that person who pushed you mid-air ended up injuring your limbs and head too! This would be a crime against mankind! You must never do something this dangerous again!” Devries worriedly said.
He got afraid when he saw the clips and highlights on YouTube.
There would be one less genius in the mathematical field if Chen Huan turned into an idiot after hitting his head. This would be a crime against science and mankind!
Professor Robert also said the same thing.
Chen Huan could only thank them for being concerned and said he would be careful in the future to try to avoid things like that from happening in the future, which calmed those two professors down.
Not many people would care that a little fight happened in basketball.
There were many situations like that in competitive sports in the US and people even really fought in hockey.
The NBA had been regarded as a sport for the black bros for many years and the sport wasn’t that popular.
That was until under the lead of Stern with the continuous improvement with the rules that the situation went in the upward tendency and became middle in the pack.
So only the basketball fans cared about this.
Teacher Su and Teacher Wang from Basketball World were more knowledgeable so they gave everyone an idea what would happen before the first quarter was over.
Didn’t the NBA have an official website? Didn’t they have a channel where they could complain?
They must complain about the Blazers and address the injustice received by Chen Huan!
It wouldn’t do anything if it was in small numbers but what if millions of tens of millions of people protested?
It would be impossible for any sports league to ignore the fans.
What does China have the most?
Of course it was people!
Immediately in the forums or in the comments of big players’ Weibo, instructions on how to lodge complaints to the NBA were written.
They even gave them what to say in English with various paragraphs and wording so people that didn’t know English could also complain.
By 10, more than 7 million fans already filed their complaint via various channels, which directly crashed the NBA official website.
The President of the NBA Silva was feeling irritated by all the phone calls he received.
Now the entire US learned about this and the NBA website crashed, which attracted attention.
As the president of the NBA, he certainly didn’t want a small fight on the court to turn into such a big fanfare.
Actually, if there weren’t so many things happening so fast and the matter wasn’t blown out of proportion, he would just suspend all the three players involved.
With a report given by the referee on the court, Plumlee was injured and passed out but he started it with his malicious foul so should be suspended for 5 games.
Davis discarded Chen Huan’s possible injuries and maliciously pulled up Chen Huan so should also be suspended for 3 games.
Chen Huan inadvertently hurt Plumlee as well as choked Davis, which was an out of proportionate response, so he should be suspended for 3 to 5 games.
But Silva couldn’t do that anymore.
Because he received more than dozens of calls within half an hour after Chen Huan was sent off.
One of them was from Jordan.
He told Silva that such action mustn’t be condoned and that Plumlee must be severely punished and Chen Huan just had a normal reaction and shouldn’t be heavily punished.
Jordan wasn’t only an owner of a NBA team but also the god of basketball.
Silver had the final say in the NBA but he had much more influence than Silver outside of it as the world would listen to him over Silver.
So Silver had to seriously consider his opinion.
What prompted Jordan’s call was the former president Stern.
Although Stern retired two years ago, it was still recent and he still had a lot of influence. Moreover, Silver was brought up by him so Silver didn’t dare to ignore him.
Stern also told Silver that the situation became a big deal as it wasn’t only the Chinese fans protesting but some member of the congress also called him to ask him about the situation as well as warn him to worsen the relationship between the two countries.
Silver obviously understood the congressmen words and understood what Stern meant.
The protest from millions of Chinese fans obviously couldn’t be ignored and such a large-scale complaint would definitely cause a reaction from the Chinese side and it would be hard to tell what would happen if something went wrong.
Moreover, the Chinese market was always something Silver was focusing on and it would definitely be a big loss if all that effort was wasted.
After that, many celebrities in the US also called, all whom who were well-known in the US and some of them figured with power.
Without exception, they were all in support of Chen Huan and against the two players from the Blazers.
There was nobody calling in support of the Blazers.
With all of that, Silver knew what he had to do.
