Pretty bad. Maybe the worst. Wouldn't be surprised if they press charges but I'm of the opinion that just about anything short of murder that happens on a field of play shouldn't be prosecuted.

But that said, that's a really bad play.

This is absurd. Assault is assault. I think there should always be consideration for accidental contact in sports, but this isnít that. He assaulted the other player.

That's fine. I've held absurd opinions before. I even kind of agree that it's absurd. And it's my opinion.

I've seen dirtier but the guy really hide it well from the refs.  That being said, he should be banned from play.  The Kermit Washington punch on Rudy T  was worse and did more damage...

The Pistons, late 80's early 90's, were the worst I've see. Robert Parish just beat Lambeer into the ground finally. Just cheap shots over and over. Johnny Most was calling Lambeer and Machorn, Mcdirty and McNasty.

It was "McFilthy and McNasty," I believe.

Thanks, Johnny Most was the best! TP for correction!

So it looks like the kid lost his player of the year award, was thrown off the team, has been banned from coming on campus and the police are investigating the incident to see if charges should be brought against him.

the first time I saw that Kermit punch I couldnít believe it. Itís such a forceful punch, one o the worst acts of unarmed violence period (basketball or not) I still have it embedded in my memory

This is why I dont understand people who say "why did the police shoot him? He was unarmed!

Because an unarmed Kermit Washington sent Rudy to 2 weeks in intensive care, broken jaw, broken nose, fractured face, and cracked skull where he could taste the spinal fluid

really? you are comparing shooting at a distance with an up close sucker punch?

Of course the result was worse, but that was during an altercation at least. Kermit should have been suspended much longer or even banned (so should have Artest), but this was an actual play, completely unprovoked. Rudy T certainly didnít look like he was running in to attack anyone, but it was still in the midst of a fight.


Playing basketball in the NCAA or NBA is a privilege, not a right, regardless of talent. Act like a thug, you should be banned.

On the night of Dec. 9, 1977, the Houston Rocket forward had suffered a fractured skull, broken jaw, broken nose, other facial injuries and leakage of spinal fluid when he was struck by the fist of Laker forward Kermit Washington.


When the swelling subsided, surgery was performed to reconstruct his face. Tomjanovich eventually recovered and played for three more seasons before he retired in 1981.

Does anyone know what happened to this kid the OP posted.

As far as I know, he passed concussion protocol and was able to finish the game.

Some crazy sh!t used to go on in the nba.
I like the Darryl Dawkins one squaring off after sucker punching someone.
