15 of the most dangerous and violent acts in history
15. Zaza Pachulia
We start with not soft, but secret, evil, whore. There are all compilations of gestures bastard Georgian scammer. But his approach to Kawhi Leonard marks an important turning point in recent NBA history. Less spectacular than the rest of the classification – not because of the sin itself, but because of its terrible consequences.
Leonard almost never played for the Spurs again. He was injured in the risky move, returning for only 9 games the following season, and the management of the case forced him to request a trade from San Antonio to Toronto. All of this will lead the Raptors to their first crown in 2019.
We can never say it enough, when you volunteer to put your legs under a guy’s cylinder in a stretch, it really is a bastard.
14. Ron Artest
One of the most violent impulses of recent years. But what’s interesting about this story is that we wonder what was really going on in the head of Ron Artest, then known as Metta World Peace (who doesn’t want to know what’s going on in his skull?). For once it didn’t live up to its name.
Artest had just hit a huge dunk on Serge Ibaka, and he seemed determined to celebrate with an angry punch. So… why is this nudge so gratuitous???? In fact, the player later reiterated several times that he had no idea James Harden, his unfortunate victim, was behind him. He was so in his own world that he claims he didn’t realize it. Therefore, he submits his case to the judges on the spot.
The NBA did not joke with Artest and gave him a 7 game suspension. His reputation probably didn’t help him in this story.
13. Shaquille O’Neal
There have been worse fouls in NBA history. But on the other hand, imagine a 6-foot-1, 84-pound Shaq coming at you full speed ahead of a 6-foot-1, 130-pound (uh… 150?) Shaq.
12. Derek Fisher
Hey, another Lakers player. definitely. Later, when we find out that Luis Scola wasn’t the last one to hit the bullies, we imagine Derek Fisher wanted to send a message.
11. Mardy Collins
When Madison Square Garden became a boxing ring. It all starts with a butcher’s foul by Mardy Collins that sends JR Smith to the floor. The latter immediately stood up and everything turned. A total battle just two years after the traumatic fight between Pacers and Pistons fans at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The irony is that Smith, the first contact victim, had 10 stops against the Knicks player … 6.
10. Alonzo Jas
We are again in the fight with players from New York. Besides, it is Alonzo Mourning who started this completely absurd judo feud. Ah, the NBA the old way, it was still a hell of a delirium.
9. Bill Laimber
A little for all his work. The vice master who so beautifully describes the “bad boys” of the Pistons.
8. Robert Horry
You don’t always have to put your hands or feet to hurt your opponent (we’ll get to that). A big, poorly placed hip thrust — well-placed for a kick after all — can send more than one to the mat. Steve Nash fell for this disgusting gesture of Robert Horry.
Again, this mistake had quite dramatic consequences. But not so for Horry. Or rather for the Suns. Angered, Amar’e Stoudemire and Boris Diaw broke NBA rules by getting off the bench. Therefore, they were suspended for one game. A decisive playoff matchup in Phoenix that undoubtedly cost the series and possibly even the title.
Therefore, we cannot say for sure that Mike D’Antoni’s players would have won a complete victory. But after an attack like Horry’s, it must be particularly infuriating to lose in these conditions.
How Steve Nash and the Suns stole the NBA title
7. Raja Bell
We stay with the sun. And their keeper, Raja Bell. Phoenix’s back, considered the “Kobe stopper”, has morphed in this first round of the playoffs. Bryant carried him around a few times. And maybe Bell got angry because he was tired of getting punched in the face.
6. Marvin Williams
Choke while the opponent is in the air. Totally free, especially since the Celtics were cruising to victory and would have eliminated the Falcons from the playoffs. Marvin Williams just wanted someone to pay. It fell on Rajon Rondo. Surprisingly, Kevin “Bar Fight” Garnett didn’t react any further.
5. Jerry Stackhouse
Like Garnett, Shaquille O’Neal didn’t attempt to kill his opponent after drawing a gap violation. That’s right, Dwyane Wade got angry before calming him down. First of all, he was relieved to see that it was Jerry Stackhouse at the start of his glide flight. And that says a lot about Stackhouse, who has quite the reputation in the industry. He especially shot Allen Iverson and Kirk Snyder.
4. Carl Malone
We have a feeling Karl Malone just wanted to beat Isiah Thomas. He could almost punch her. In the end, it was his elbow that hit the Pistons leader in the face, and the latter was already in the air! Unless it’s deliberate and premeditated…
Thomas remained on the ground covered in blood for a long time. He needed 40 stitches. When he came home, his face was so swollen that his wife even started crying when she saw him. Dirty.
3. Andrew Bynum
Terrible. Here again a completely gratuitous attack. Bynum doesn’t regret his gesture on the spot, as he takes off his jersey and goes to the locker room before the referees even bother to throw him off the field. What a cold-blooded killer. He knows what he’s doing now, he knows what’s coming, and he doesn’t care. As if nothing happened.
2. Kevin McHale
Kevin McHale thought the Celtics were too soft. He wanted to react. But the intensity of the attack against Kurt Rambis. The sin of a real madman, which led to the beginning of a general struggle again. In any case, ironically, it paid off as his teammates later found the will to rebel.
1. Bruce Bowen
Have you ever seen a guy shoot with his feet? We, yes. Bruce Bowen. A completely impossible and super dangerous move that could rip Wally Szczerbiak’s head off.
