With all the hoopla surrounding the “brawl” that took place last night in Detroit, I feel it necessary to supply the obligatory commentary. The Sparks will surely be without Candace Parker for a few games, and some other player probably will get fined or something.
Which brings up another question: Does it make sense to fine a “professional athlete” if she makes, say, about as much as an architect with 2 years experience? What point does that prove? — “Please send in your $30 check and written apology to the league office by next Wednesday at 9am.” — Damn.
At any rate, I wanted to share the theatrics from our vantage point. From where we were sitting, it looked like the big one, while down early, got the most of the smaller one.
Pay special attention around the 1:14 and 2:38 marks.
