K-Mart and Maggette get into a fight

K-Mart and Maggette get into a fight

Postby JSM on Tue Jan 06, 2004 8:24 pm

Another fight, this one happened in the third quarter of the Nets and Clipps game
Yahoo Sports: A blowout victory for the New Jersey Nets was marred by a blowup between Kenyon Martin and Corey Maggette.

Jason Kidd had his second straight 30-plus point game and Nets held the Los Angeles Clippers to a season-low 28 first-half points in a 92-75 win Tuesday night. Martin and Maggette were ejected after exchanging punches in the third quarter, and both face automatic suspensions.

The players fought with 7:08 left in the third quarter after Martin committed a hard foul on Maggette on a drive to the basket. Maggette shoved Martin to the court, and Martin got up and went after Maggette.

No one else was involved in the fracas.

something I don't understand, in the Pacers and Hornets fight, the only punishment the guys got was a $10k fine, but they say this fight will result in suspensions. I don't understand why. I saw it on NBA fastbreak, and still can't see why they are getting suspended. If anyone knows why, please help me clarify this.

the reason that the New Orleans - Indiana fight did not warrent suspensions is becuase there was "supposedly" no punches thrown, and that they just got into a verbal confrintation.
but since K-mart and Corey exchanged fists...thats an automatic suspension.

I don't know what angle they had when reviewing that fight, but it was a lot more than a verbal confrontation, anyone could gather that much by simply reading the guys' post game comments about each other. And I would be more than willing to bet there was at least 1 fist thrown.

It's weird-- Magette got fouled by Kenyon and it looked like he tried to prevent Magette from falling. Then Magette throws K-Mart onto the floor out of nowhere and stares him down.

Martin gets back up and punches Magette straight in the throat and then they exchange punches until it's broken up.

It wasn't a bad fight. You'll see in a bit... I'll post the link here and in the Theater section.

here is what was said after the game

Yahoo Sports: "I didn't push him, I hope he understands that,'' Maggette said. "I know Kenyon is a hothead sometimes, he takes things the wrong way. Like I said, I'll let the league handle it and go on with it.''

Maggette said he was surprised when Martin grabbed him by the throat. He wasn't sure whether he hit Martin with a punch or was hit by him.

Maggette sent a ball boy down to the Nets locker room while the game was in progress and offered to apologize. Martin turned down the offer.

"I know things happen and I think I am a bigger man to go talk to him and try to apologize about the situation, but I guess he declined so I am going to move on,'' Maggette said.

Nets coach Byron Scott felt Maggette overreacted.

Clippers Mike Dunleavy thought Martin might have tripped over his own feet instead of being pushed. He also wasn't surprised by the timing or type of foul.

They're not wannabe thugs-- fights happen everyday with everybody. Add the factor that basketball is a physical sport and you'll get a fight every once in a while.

That's possible, and if that's the case, Corey shouldn't have pushed him. I still think it was a hard foul, and K-Mart over-reacted, but I agree with you, they're not thugs. Even Shaq threw a punch at Brad Miller of the Chicago Bulls when he was being abused under the basket. Luckily for him it didn't connect! :boxing1:
