Jermaine O’Neal can usually be found near and around most NBA brawls.
O’Neal is just as famous for his role in the Malice at the Palace, as he is for his skills on the hardwood. Saturday night O’Neal was injured an in street clothes, but was still able to interject himself into a fight.
Saturday night during a tightly contested 3rd quarter, the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors got into a scuffle after Warriors center Andrew Bogut elbowed Blazers center Joel Freeland after battling for a rebound, and things quickly escalated from there.
Once the fighting and shoving moved towards the Warriors bench, Jermaine O’Neal somehow found his huge hands wrapped around Mo William’s neck for a brief moment before the two were separated.
Jermaine’s pockets should get a little lighter in a few hours.
