I’d Pay To See That!

In case you missed it, Zach Randolph of the Memphis Grizzlies and Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder got into a little altercation during Wednesday night’s game. While we don’t know for sure what the lover’s tiff was about, we do know, due to some highly sensitive microphones, that Perkins proposed the two could settle their argument by meeting at the bus after the game.

“I’m telling your, Bieber had no right to break up with Selena!”

Just in case my retelling isn’t doing it for you, you can watch the whole thing right here.

Oops, I meant right here.

Either way, the two were promptly ejected, but apparently that didn’t end the whole mess right then-and-there. Instead, Randolph and Perkins allegedly met inside the tunnel, and had to quickly be separated by security and Oklahoma City police.

While the OKC Police Department is saying that the alleged incident never took place, that still isn’t stopping David Stern and Co. from conducting their own investigation. Potential fines and suspensions are being threatened. This behavior won’t be tolerated in the least!

I say David Stern is approaching this whole matter completely wrong. The NBA shouldn’t be discouraging this type of behavior, but instead should be promoting it. Why? Because right now the Thunder are desperately missing James Harden and aren’t that fun to watch, the Heat are either blowing teams out or getting blown out, and considering all the hype they got coming into the season, the Lakers are completely unwatchable.

This is so far the most boring start to any NBA season in recent memory. I mean, you know the league’s in trouble when an Amar’e-less Knicks squad and the Retirement-Home-Spurs are the most entertaining teams at the moment.

“We’re unbearable!”

The league has to do something to rally our attention. As it is, Kendrick Perkins stands 6′ 10″ and weighs 269 pounds, and Zach Randolph is 6′ 9″  and 260 pounds. These guys are huge, and watching them whoop the hell out of each other would be (so far) more entertaining than the train wreck Lakers, the Clippers reverting back to the mean, or Mavericks realizing just how long it’s been since 2011.

Something’s got to give. And as long as it doesn’t spill over into the crowd (looking you “Metta World Peace”), I say, let ’em work it out.
