Vote: Did Mailman get off light?

In the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the NBA's Western Conference finals, Lakers forward Karl Malone lowered his shoulder and tattooed Timberwolves guard Darrick Martin, sending Martin to the floor.

Malone was ejected and fined $7,500, but some folks, including ESPN's David Aldridge, think the penalty was just a slap on the wrist.

We want your take, SportsNation. Did Malone get off easy? Is the league looking out for the Lakers? And what do you expect to see now?
