Marcin Gortat suggests NBA fights be allowed.

New commissioner Adam Silver has been open to trying new things since replacing David Stern. Something tells me however that he won’t approve of Gortat’s idea.

I would say I would loosen up a little bit the rules about the fighting fines. That’s what I would loosen up. Because today you go to an ice hockey game, and the one thing they’re waiting for is a fight, you know what I’m saying? So if they could set it up something like that in the NBA. That if there are two guys and they have a problem, if they could just separate everybody. And these two people that have problem, if they could fight …

During the game?

During the game. Quick, 15-20 seconds, throw few punches, then referees jump in and break this thing up. I think the game … these two guys, they resolved their problem. They’re both suspended and they’re leaving. But end of the day, they fix the problem between each other, fans are super excited, and I think that would be a pretty cool idea [chuckles].

There’s no surprise a guy nicknamed the “polish hammer” wants to allow fighting into the game.
