Fistfights

Have you been in an actual fight as an adult? I've been in exactly three. One was a bar-room brawl in the army. The other two were on the basketball court.

Join a boxing gym and spar. You'll learn first-hand without suffering any legal consequence. You might get your ass kicked, though

i want to experience it without gloves or helmets (the puncher not the punchee). like brad pitt in snatch.

though i was once assaulted by a customer. and i have had to separate my employees from fighting. and i will say grown sober men getting in a fist fight is in my eyes a sad sight to see.

This was your chance and you missed it. I'll tell you though, it hurts. The only adult I've ever punched I cut my finger on his tooth.

Did they hang on the rim too long after dunking on you?

No, but they were dunk-related.

I had a feeling. Basketball fights usually start up because of a dunk or because of an elbow.

One shoving match in law school, a brief scuffle at a tailgate (body-slammed a drunk kid twice), that's it. I hate getting that mad. My face gets all twitchy and I feel out-of-control. Also had several near fights in soccer and basketball games.

CSFLMM - I played basketball about 15-20 hours a week for about ten years, from age 18 to 28. I frequently played on ghetto courts, especially in my younger years and never felt physically threatened.

When I was 24, I was playing in a middle class, white & asian St. Pete neighborhood. The crowd was pretty diverse, though, an equal mix of asian, hispanic, black and white. A black kid (about 19-20) kept bullying a younger skinny thai kid on my team, so much that me and two other dudes (one of them black) had to step in and cool things down. They flared up again about five minutes later, black kid bounces the ball off asian kid's head. Asian kid starts screaming obscenities on his way to his bike and leaves. Another kid steps in for Asian kid.

We think it's over, and my team begins to trounce black kid's team. We'd been going at the kid hard since the bullying incident, talking shit to him, turning his teammates against him, etc... Kid bitches a bit but quiets down. We play another game after that and then we're all on the side of the court grabbing water. I'm arguing with the black kid, trying to tell him he shouldn't do shit like that - it's not nice, etc.., he's pulling the "man's game" card, when a riced-out Celica pulls up.

Thai kid and an older thai kid come up. Black kid is setting on a bench about four feet from me. Older Thai kid pulls out a gun, points it at black kid and tells him to apologize. I back away. No one says a word. Black kid mumbles out an apology. Older Thai kid has him repeat it a few times. The two Thai kids leave. Black kid leaves about a minute afterward. We talk about it a bit more, doing the various re-enactments and jokes, and then go back to playing. Crazy though.

DEETS please. I love hearing about pick-up basketball in general, pick-up basketball fights are epic.

I'm 6'5" and used to be pretty athletic. I'd dunk on someone, and they'd get pissed. Later in the game iI'd go for another dunk, and the asshole would intentionally undercut me. I did, and do view undercuts as an attempt on my life, and respond in kind. Fortunately for all, most basketball fight last two punches and I subscribe to the John Thompson school of throwing both of them.
