Rush Hour 4

“Never touch a Chinese man’s basketball!”

The fight between Georgetown and the Bavi Rockets wasn’t pretty, although it narrowly ended up missing being the Wrestling Video of the Week. Seems like the Rockets were getting a little chippy and finally the GTown players snapped. As crazy as the video is, it may have deep implications. The Chinese Basketball league is only allowing NBA players to come over if they are free agents and will not be able to leave if the lockout ends. That’s not good news for players like Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul that wanted to play there. It does not, however, affect Stephon Marbury.

According to the New York Times, Chinese athletes in general have begun to rebel against authority. Maybe this is an outcropping of that. Or they don’t like black people. How come it’s only the international games that have fights with chairs and tables involved? We need more fighting in the NBA. It would make things a lot more exciting. Can you imagine Amar’e Stoudemire and Kevin Garnett going at it with steel chairs? The NBA would make so much money. Lockout solved.
