Throughout this long and tedious NBA offseason we’re going to delve into the archives and take a look at some of the more memorable moments from previous years. We’ll have game winning shots, dustups and brain snaps, monster jams and much more.
Up now, the epic 2004 brawl between the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers. The first video shows the incident in full as it happened, and in the second video, at the 0.42 second mark, Ron Artest squares off with a Pistons’ fan and throws a vicious one-two combo (this was not shown in the first video). You can’t blame him here; those guys were on the court ready for a fight, and it was either hit or be hit. And then Jermaine O’Neal comes flying in with an errant haymaker. This is wild stuff!
