With me being an Asian American, I was embarrassed by this, refused to watch any videos of the incident and initially judged the Asian players for taking things too far. All American media says the Chinese players just started jumping on the Georgetown players for apparently no reason. From what I can see in the videos, a Georgetown player takes the first swing after a Chinese player tries to block an attempted pass. What happened afterwards was a good ole brawl. I don't mind seeing it in the NBA, MLB and NHL every so often so why not in this venue, right?
Anyhow, what happened after that was ridiculous and 100% at fault of the fans in the stadium. As the Georgetown players were leaving the court, they were throwing bottles at them. That is unacceptable! If the team really asked for a police escort and didn't get it, THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE!
Had to vent a little for both sides. Sorry.
P.S. Those Chinese players knew how to throw down! Goes to show that when an NBA player looks like he doesn't know how to fight, he probably really can't. I know these were college players but where do you think a majority of NBA players come from? In other news, GO NINERS!
1) Unless you have some exclusive video that nobody else has or you are a video CSI, you don't know who started it, the way the the Chinese players carried it out is the real issue here - like a bunch of sore losers and scumbags. China gets in these all of the time, what is the common denominator?
2) You might like to see brawls at these sports, that might explain your post... I don't, if I wanted to watch people fight I'm watching a UFC match or better yet, a real sport - boxing.
3) The Chinese team were ARMY SOLDERS! WTF do you think? Yeah that's a fair fight, lets take about 15-20 or so 18-20 year olds and match them against 30-40 TRAINED KILLERS. American sports brawls almost never escalate to this level of violence.
I hope no country agrees to another exhibition game with these morally-bankrupt ingrates for an extremely long time and the Olympic committee should ban them from participation.
Being an Asain American, this fight shouldn't embarrass you - your post should.
