If you have not seen or heard anything about the fight that broke out last night in Detroit between the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons, you need to. The fight started out as some name calling, pushing, and maybe a few swings and ended up being an all out brawl with players going into the stands and beating fans that had thrown cups full of drinks at them.
People are saying that the players should not have gone after the fans and to a point I agree. But, no player deserves to have stuff thrown at them by a drunk fan. If you are dumb enough to throw something at a person who is much bigger and stronger than you than you are dumb enough to face the consequences, which, in this case was a right hand to the face.
To make matters worse fans came out onto the court and were taunting players and throwing more stuff at them. One guy even took a swing at Ron Artest and Ron did what any other person would do, he swung back.
I really do not know how I feel about the whole situation. No, there should not be fighting but there also shouldn’t be people throwing things at players.
