2011 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics
Thought I’d start this early, considering the news about Delonte West.
During a three-on-three game with Avery Bradley(notes), Luke Harangody(notes), Semih Erden(notes) and assistant coach Tyronn Lue(notes), West began fouling [Von] Wafer each time the reserve guard touched the ball. West was increasingly physical to the point that Wafer exited to the locker room midway through the game. As he walked away, West barked obscenities and taunted Wafer.
After Wafer had showered and sat down at his locker, West approached from behind and threw a punch. Wafer didn’t see the punch coming but quickly got off of the ground and connected on two punches of his own. He then wrestled West to the ground before being separated by the team’s veterans.
Totally uncalled for, but yet still laugh out loud funny, joke about it from Twitter:
GaryJBusey (Not Gary Busey)
“So Delonte West hit something besides LeBron James’ mom?”
