Renaldo Balkman & Greivis Vasquez Get Into It In Argentina

When Puerto Rico took on Venezuela yesterday in the FIBA Americas Championship, there was a lot of NBA talent on the floor. Jose Juan Barea, Carlos Arroyo, Ricky Sanchez, Daniel Santiago and Renaldo Balkman all suited up for Puerto Rico, while Venezuela had Oscar Torres and Greivis Vasquez. And with Olympic berths on the line, you can understand that things might have gotten heated. And they did. Let’s just say that Balkman didn’t take too kindly to a foul late in the fourth quarter with the game in hand.



What do you think?

    Seriously. There’s breaking up a fight and calming a guy down, but Balkman is a grown man.

    haha Balkman should have head butted the coach too and go straight for Greivis, Bonks Adventure style…

    Balkmans reaction to a pretty weak foul (not that it matters how bad the foul is) is a complete disgrace! Why are the coaching staff telling him to calm down because the need him?! They should be telling him to get his ass back to the locker room and pack his bag!

    A.) Nice headbutt, douchebag.
    B.) Out of hand? Then why did they still have their starters in?
    C.) That wasn’t even that hard of a foul. He pulled his arm down, come on now.
    D.) Balkman got knocked the f down haha
