NBA To Allow Fights In The Future? [Video]

Could the NBA allow fights to happen in the near future?

If Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat had his way he would.

In a Q&A session with True Hoop, he was asked about the current NBA rules and what he would like to change.

“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. 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].

After seeing what happened in Detroit during the Malace at the Palace, I’m not sure that’d be a good idea Gortat. All in all with the rules being the way it is we have seen our share of good fights in the sport.
