PJ Hairston punched a high school kid tonight?

255 posts in this topic

My initial thoughts were in the PJ thread...but just damn dude. Get your ass to Charlotte and don't leave. I was worried about him being drafted in NC, and though all the details aren't out yet, poo like this obviously has to stop. 

 

The report is that the kid threw a punch first which helps a little but still....grow up, PJ. Not too many other players are finding themselves in these situations over and over except for you.

What an idiot. How you gonna provoke a high school kid to the point he swings on you in a pick up game? C'mon man!

I'm pretty sure it doesn't take a lot to get kids today in a fighting mood. Have you seen the news lately.?

Yeah, but when you're a professional, you're held to a higher standard. I don't know what happened, but I'm guessing there was some trash talk going on.

Clearly defending a guy that has yet to prove he can stay out of trouble. Have Kemba or Big Al gotten into any fights this offseason? Nope. This isn't "normal" or "no big deal." With the history he already has, it is pivotal for him to stay out of any negative situation.  He was drafted 10 days ago and we already have a story. Unreal.

Charles Barkley was a professional but he was going to defend himself.

Now if the situation is PJ fault then blast his dumb ass. But if he was defending himself then it's hypocritical to think I wouldn't do the same thing.

"Supposedly" there is video...and the kid doesn't punch first/at all. He's also saying on Twitter he didn't throw punches. God bless Twitter rumors.

No I'm just realistic about what can happen at a "pick up basketball game". I have seen weapons drawn over a "pick up basketball game". Let's find out the facts before we judge anybody.

Sorry man, I just don't think you can give a guy with his past the benefit of the doubt.  He's gotta earn that back, and this isn't a good start.

    • You would think, after years of childish behavior by many politicians that THIS is now the time to start "adulting" in DC. Maybe my gerrymandered district is about to get hit and made more competitive?  Or the demographics show my white, conservative base shrinking over the next decade?  Regardless, this is a great time to start reaching across the aisle to give those independent voters something to think about. Given that Bernie is going to throw out a universal coverage law, this might put a little motivation on the right to do some fixing to Obamacare instead of going full "socialist" with Universal Heathcare (how turrrrribbble!!).  Sometimes, you have to pick your battles, and what we've seen thus far is Trump's battles stink.
    • Based on that article, it seems that a sale will only be made if the buyer agrees to not move the team out of Charlotte. I hope that holds up.
