It's very rare that I find myself here in the Sports Bar, so I apologize for showing up with a noob question, but hopefully you guys are willing to take some time out to school me on some basketball history. I know next to nothing about basketball, but, as a Chicagoan, I'm a huge Michael Jordan/Bulls fan. I'm currently rewatching the Bulls' first championship run on YouTube and I was confounded by this quick little excerpt from an interview with Phil Jackson that they aired on the broadcast during Game 4 of the Bulls/Pistons series: My question: Did basketball players really used to fight? Was it hockey style where, if you took an elbow to the back, say, you'd ask the guy if he wanted to go and then you'd start swinging? Are there classic basketball fights that I don't know about akin to Bob Probert or Tie Domi fights? What has this noob been missing from the history of basketball? Thanks in advance.
