Compared to the NBA, international hoops leagues are somewhere between the WWE and Deadwood, and produced another gem of a fight involving former NBA role player Terrence Jones and a member of the notoriously scrappy Phoenix Pulse in a recent Philippines pro league matchup.
Jones, who is the equivalent of Shaq at this level, was in the midst of a dominant 40-point, 10 board night when he got body checked to the ground by Calvin Abueva. Jones took exception to the shot and retaliated with a nut punch that buckled Abueva. He then celebrated with a dance routine on the sideline.
This prompted Abueva to respond by flooring Jones with a WWE clothesline and mocking his dance routine after getting tossed. As far as basketball fights go, this has a little something for everyone.
