We’re Gonna Take This Sitting Down
November 19, 2004: In the final minutes of an NBA game at the Palace of Auburn Hills, there’s a huge fight between the Pistons and the pacers.
July 22, 2007: In the final minutes of a WNBA game at the Palace of Auburn Hills, there’s a huge fight between the Shock and the Sparks.
Yes, even the women of Detroit know how to throw down. But this one had a twist. Instead of players going into the stands and punching out paid attendees, one of Detroit’s coaches pushed down one of Los Angeles’s stars. The player was Lisa Leslie (I’ve heard of her!). The coach was … Rick Mahorn.
The question we all have on our minds, of course is: how did Mahorn beat Dennis Rodman to the “fight a woman basketball player” scout badge? After that inquiry, it’s merely an odd sight to see a man get in a fight with a women, even though the woman is a well-sculpted athlete who could probably kick 85% of the male ass in this country.
Maybe because of the Mahorn involvement, or maybe just because nobody could hear what the women were saying to each other, this scuffle doesn’t even come close to the clubhouse leader of Year’s Best Cat Fight.Tags: detroit shock, lisa leslie, los angeles sparks, rick mahorn, wnba
