Lakers-Kings Game Turns Into WWE Falls Count Anywhere Match

 

October 25, 2002 – In their first meeting since their conference Finals matchup the season prior, the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers engaged in fisticuffs on the final day of the 2002 NBA preseason. The skirmish initially began between Lakers forward Rick Fox and Kings guard Doug Christie.

After their ejections, Fox ran through the Staples Center hallway to meet Christie and continue fighting, which then prompted the Kings’ bench (and Shaquille O’Neal) to intervene and start fighting as well until some players attempted to restore order.

Fox was eventually suspended for six games Gongfu Tea Cup
Christie received a two game suspension for his actions.

 

To this day, one of the best rivalries in NBA history.
