Why would you say that? He has been pretty well behaved since then and he would have deff helped the Lakers.

That brawl ruined a team that had the most regular season wins the previous season, and was odds on favorites to win the championship. Let's not forget that it was Detriot that eliminated them the year before on their way to a championship. And the Pacers manhandled them the entire game. The Piston's starters were about to be pulled from the game when the fight happened, it was already over. Just some commentary.

I think the Pacers could have won it that year. They showed they were better than the Pistons in that game.

he will crack soon. it has only been like 9 games. soon you will see him do his so called "im getto and i will always be one" act and then he will crack.

he is a good player that is true. but his attitude would of hurt the lakers chemistry so much.

Yeah have you guys noticed like a few weeks after the brawl NBA started their BS "NBA Cares" crap. That's so lame of them! I know teams do great charity work but since the brawl they're making sure the charity events are being recorded so NBA Fans can see so we can be brainwashed into thinking "Aww! Look he cares!" I ain't falling for that crap David Stern, trying to cover up the brawl.

I watched the whole thing from beginning to end and I was pretty upset at the end seeing some innocent bystander bloodied and kids crying. Imagine that. You try to take your kids to a basketball game and hope to instill them a love for the game of basketball. Then all of a sudden these 7 foot giants (remember these are little kids) come running into the stands punching out everyone while other fans are fighting each other. People are throwing things at each other. Very uncivilized. Those kids probably will never look at basketball the same...Seriously. Kids get traumatized pretty easily.

Blame Ben Wallace!!!!

Ben Wallace shouldnt have flipped out over i hard foul. I felt bad for the guy who got punched like 9 times by artest then 2 times by Jermaine. Just shows you how low down detroit is though.

Anybody have a link to the video of Jermaine O'neal punching the fan that ran on the court?

I remember watching it, this one fat fan ran onto the court and was like in the middle of all the comotion, when out of nowhere Jermaine O'neal runs in and starts to throw a punch, but his foot slips so he slides and doesn't make hit the guy at his hardest. I remember people said if he hadn't slipped and had made full contact the guy could have died or something...
