03:46 PM ET 11.29 | Last night's game between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics wasn't short on drama, to say the least. With 30 seconds left in the second quarter of a 51-35 beat down by the Nets, Brooklyn forward Kris Humphries gave a hard foul to a shooting Kevin Garnett, who then fell to the ground. Celtics' guard and league assist leader Rajon Rondo took exception to that, pushing Humphries towards the fans on the sidelines. Coaches from both benches came in to separate all parties. Humphries, Rondo and an intervening Gerald Wallace (who had been issued a technical earlier in the night) were all ejected from the game. Who doesn't like a good scuffle? I certainly do. After last night's mini-fight between the Celtics and Nets, I find it fitting to take a look back at some of the more infamous cheap shots and brawls the league has ever seen.

This is true. I remember Jalen Rose talking about when the Pacers were waiting for a plane in Denver with a hockey team. He walked over and apologized to them for how N.B.A. players fight. Laughter ensued!
