I’m not one to condone violence, but what the hell, we’re all adults here!
Roy Hibbert’s little scuffle with David Lee, earlier this week, sent me on a hour-long YouTube bender pulling up some of the greatest NBA fights of all time. When brainstorming #ThrowbackThursday ideas, I immediately thought Malice in the Palace. That fight was so major, folks thought it would be the demise of The Association. But then I stumbled upon the always satisfying classic low res footage of Chris Childs serving Kobe Bryant the ultimate two piece and a biscuit, and knew this was it.
This video reminds me of Jay’s line in Ignorant Sh*t, “…the tough guy disappears, then the bitch come out.” Because regardless of whether you believe Childs truly caught Bryant, we can ALL agree that elbow Kobe threw was weak sauce. As far as reps go, Kobe will live on as one of the greatest NBA players of all time. And Childs will live on as the dude who two pieced one of the greatest NBA players of all time. You do the math.
