NBA FIGHT! NBA FIGHT!
Here we have a matchup of two of the NBA’s meanest, nastiest, toughest guards going Mano a Mano during last night’s Rockets/Grizzlies contest.
Let’s take a look at the pre-fight breakdown.
James Harden – 6’5″ with a 7′ wingspan
Fighting Style – backyard pool chickenfight crossed with a “Hold Me Back Hold Me Back” attitude
Finishing Move – The Unexpected Shove
Mario Chalmers – 6’2″ with a 6’5″ wingspan
Fighting Style – Brazilian Ji-Jitzu groundwork with Kickboxing specialty
Finishing Move – Sweep the Leg
Winner – James Harden
Pretty convincing victory here for Harden. The obvious aggressor but this fight analyst thinks it was justified. You have to defend your turf at home. A close look at the tape reveals that the initial instigator was actually James Ennis III and Mario Chalmers was actually just caught in the mix. Wrong place, wrong time but when the fight comes to you, you have to be ready and Mario was not ready. He attempted some sophisticated groundwork to get back into the fight but it was too little to late.
