Robin Lopez And Serge Ibaka Square Off In The Best NBA Fight We’ll See All Year

Posted: March 22, 2017 in Uncategorized

 

I’m not joking when I say that was legitimately a good NBA fight. It’s 2017 and beggars can’t be choosers. Did anyone actually connect on their punches? No. But at least they got after it a little. This qualifies as a Donnybrook by basketball standards.

As much as we all love Ron Artest for being a lovable lunatic, you can give him a big thanks for the Pussification of Basketball. Since the Malice at the Palace, the league has raised suspensions (without pay) and fines for fighting to such ungodly levels, most players won’t even bother throwing hands strictly for the financial reasons. Then, add to it that they want nothing to do with the potential internet humiliation of losing a fight on national tv, and you get the bitch made NBA we have now. Shit, guys won’t even go up to challenge a dunk anymore out of fear of being posterized. They sure as shit aren’t gonna have the balls to square up and fight another man.

But just remember, even the great Heat/Knicks brawls of the mid-90s had whiffs like we saw tonight. And with bigger stars than C-listers like Serge Ibaka and Robin Lopez. Never forget…Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson.
