IFWT_Marcin Gortat  2

This sounds like a terrible and an amazing idea all at the same time! Lol.  Wizards center Marcin Gortat wants the NBA to allow NHL-syle fights during games.  Check out what he had to say & let us know what you think…



Via SI.com:

In a TrueHoop interview, Gortat suggests that the NBA should adopt the NHL’s approach to managing fights by instructing the referees to step back and let two players settle their differences by engaging in a mano-a-mano brawl.

“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].”
