4. CHRISTIAN LAETTNER VS. JERRY STACKHOUSE
In the prequel to Tony Allen vs. O.J. Mayo‘s “When Card Games Go Wrong,” Stack and Laettner got into it on a plane ride when they were both playing for the Pistons. The reasoning? Reportedly, they started beefing over $2,000 in a card game, and before anyone else on the plane knew what was happening, punches were flying. One fellow player said Stackhouse landed a few blows to the former Dukies’ face.
“I couldn’t believe it. I looked up and they were going at it, throwing blows. I wasn’t about to get in the middle of it,” one player who was not identified told The Detroit Free-Press.
