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.

#LeBroning is Now a Thing

You would've thought that with the air conditioning malfunctioning in the AT&T Center last night that the Miami Heat would've had an advantage. Nope. LeBron's leg muscles saw to that, cramping up something fierce during Game 1. This isn't the first time LeBron has had to leave a game because of cramps, prompting the Twitterverse to run wild.

The Knicks were in the lead in overtime and just needed to hang onto the ball to win the game. Well, lolnope, because Andrea Bargnani has a mental lapse and misses an ill-advised shot to give the ball back to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks ended up scoring and sending the game into a second overtime. This is one of the most boneheaded plays I've ever seen in the NBA.
