Chuck was on the Dan Patrick show a few weeks ago and talked about the 76ers putting a bounty on a guy in a blowout game against the Hornets. He said it was a forward who was taking threes and showing off a lot. He said it was not Dell Curry or LJ.

I found the box score of the game he was talking about.

Nobody meets the description of the "shooting a bunch of 3's" but Chuck doesn't have the best memory.

Based on his story, who do you think it was?

Anthony Frederick... I've found the culprit.

It was either Kevin Lynch or Anthony Frederick, likely Frederick since he took the most shots that game, but yeah, that WAS a blow out. Interesting side not, Lynch and Frederick combined for only five seasons in the league, I imagine Barkley had a hard time remembering either of them because neither of them played longer than three years in the league. But if you're hitting shots, keep shooting, especially if you are a bench player that is only getting minutes because your team is up by 52 points. You gotta show your skills when you get the time so that you can earn more minutes. The 76ers should have been embarassed at their preformance though, 52 points? Chr!$t! the were playing like a D-League squad that night.

It was JR Reid. He was ejected from the game for going at him. There was a brawl.

Not to hard to figure out, especially considering Dan Patrick NAMED JR Reid and Chuck more or less confirmed it in the interview.
