Former San Antonio Spurs player Pops Mensah-Bonsu, who is now playing for Galatasaray, has been suspended three games for brawling in a recent game against Olympiakos Piraeus during a Euroleague Game.
Apparently Pops' team and Olympiakos are bitter rivals and things got very heated towards the end of the game when a Greek player forearmed Mensah-Bonsu in the back of the head while going for the rebound. That's when things got messy and Pops retaliated. Mensah-Bonsu threw a punch back, and the fighting continued.
Check out the fight.
I love basketball fights. Worst fighters of the 3 major sports, which is odd because they are all so big. To their credit though, soccer player fights make B-Ball player fights look like UFC events. Not soccer hooligan guy though. Soccer hooligan guy crushes NBA player. Slow news month
