You may not have heard of Jeffrey Taylor, a Swedish national who was picked in the second round of the 2012 NBA draft. Taylor's NBA career never really took off, and it will likely take much longer for it to get off the ground now that he has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Taylor was inebriated in September of this year, and pushed a woman down in a hotel lobby. The woman suffered bruises and other injuries, but she refused medical treatment.
As a result of his actions, Taylor has been suspended 24 games by the NBA. He missed 11 games at the start of this season under an "indefinite" suspension by the NBA, and will miss the next 13 games under the newly released suspension to reach his 24-game punishment. If anything, the NBA's reaction to the NFL's domestic violence controversy has been stark and stern (no pun intended).
