Further proof that Carmello's 15 game suspension was excesive

As many of my 3 loyal readers remember, I had a big issue with the NBA suspending Carmello 15 games.
Well, the NBA is at it again, further proving my point.
This time, Kevin Garnett, aka The Kid, aka The Big Ticket gets only one game for throwing a punch at Detroit's Antonio McDyess.
"With 5:18 left in the fourth quarter of the Pistons' double-overtime victory over the Timberwolves on Friday night, McDyess knocked Minnesota's Mark Madsen to the floor with a forearm shove. Garnett then chucked the ball at McDyess, who charged at Garnett with his fist cocked. Garnett was poised to punch, too, and took a swipe at McDyess as he partially retreated." Associated Press.
Ok... where in the spectrum does KG's punch fall relative to Carmello's??? If Carmello got 15 games, KG at least deserves 15 for using a forearm to knock a player, throwing a bal at another player, and then punching that guy, close-fisted (as opposed to Carmello's open handed slap).
