Von Wafer and Jeremy Tyler go mental in CBA Playoff game

Published Add your comment

You don't get many mass brawls or fights in the NBA any more compared to the glory days of haymakers being thrown every evening in arenas across the country.

So where do you go if you want to see basketball players going absolutely mental on the court. No, not YouTube clips from the Seventies, it seems you have to go to China.

Wafer Not Flaking Out

Former NBA player Von Wafer has been ejected from a Chinese basketball game after throwing punches and then throwing chairs in what looked like the feistiest game i've ever seen.

It was Game 3 of the CBA quarterfinal between Qingdao DoubleStar and Shanxi Zhongyu, and things got rather heated. Qingdao completely swept Shanxi and it seems their players didn't take the loss too well.

Former NBA journeyman Von Wafer was ejected from the game for unleashing a punch straight into the stomach of Qingdao's Xudong Luo.  Wafer then follows this up by appearing to launch a chair into the crowd. You can check that out here...

Tyler's Tantrum

Then it was the turn of another one of Shanxi's former NBA players to lose it. Jeremy Tyler - who was on the New York Knicks' books last season - didn't take too kindly to a post game embrace from former Grizzlies big man Hamed Haddadi.

Tyler forcefully pushes Haddadi away from him in a god awful show of sportsmanship and then appears to suggest that the two teams continue their argument outside the locker room. And they do!

There was much more shenanigans to boot, including eye rakes, throwing players to the ground, and taking the ball handler out in mid air. Chinese basketball is great!!
