On November 19, 2004, the Indiana Pacers traveled to the Palace of Auburn Hills to face the Detroit Pistons. Tensions were high the entire game, as both teams pitted their gritty, physical, defense-first style against each other. Ultimately, the Pacers ran out to a 15-point lead near the end of the fourth quarter, and the game was winding down when Ron Artest a.k.a. Metta World Peace laid down a hard foul on Pistons big man Ben Wallace. Wallace and Artest got into it, and the benches were cleared as both teams were ready to come to blows. The situation was almost diffused, but then several drunken fans suddenly sparked a new, more violent brawl that saw Artest suspended for the rest of the season, Pacers forward Stephen Jackson suspended for 30 games, Pacers center Jermaine O'Neal suspended for 15 games, Wallace suspended for six games, and multiple felony charges laid against unruly fans.

Players fighting players. Players fighting fans. Fans fighting fans. This was the epitome of a sh*tshow, and is widely considered the most dismal moment in the NBA's 68-year history.

This is the video for an IndieGoGo campaign called September 11th Redux with a goal of $1.5 million. The key quote from the information section of the fundraising campaign is this: "We are like a Mythbusters for September 11th." That pretty much says it all. These people want a lot of money to recreate 9-11 in whatever country they think will actually let them do this. 

Who knows if they will reach their goal/be allowed to drive an extremely large aircraft on autopilot into a building. But hey, if you donate $125 you'll get a T-Shirt that says "9-11: THE REDUX" which will be awesome for those of you who love explaining your clothing to the TSA and Federal officers.
