Kevin Garnett of the Brooklyn Nets will get an extra day off this week after the league suspended him for one game for an altercation with Houston Rockets star Dwight Howard.
Apparently, it seems, NBA players aren’t allowed to head-butt.

What’s next, banning the Camel Clutch and removing drop-kicks?
All jokes aside, Garnett’s ejection certainly didn’t help the (16-22) Nets score a victory. The Rockets went on to win easily 113-99, with James Harden knocking down 30 points. The Houston guard is averaging 26.9 PPG on the season.
For his part in the scuffle, Dwight Howard was fined $15,000. Too bad he earns $261,463 per game.
