almost...didn't Ryan have him in in the headlock reversed where he got in 6 or 7 punches? What was Ventura thinking.....best case scenario....you beat up a 46 year old man....worst case scenario and what actually happened....you get your ass handed to you by a 46 year old man in a video that generations will witness.

Magic’s Aaron Afflalo suspended two games for swing at Nemanja Bjelica

This wasn’t two guys yelling into a locker room after a game, this was an actual fight. With an actual haymaker punch being thrown — and missing.

Aaron Afflalo and Nemanja Bjelica had been going back-and-forth all game Tuesday night, then it bubbled over when Jamal Crawford missed a jumper, Bjelica charged right at Afflalo while going for an offensive board, Afflalo blocked him like an offensive lineman, and then it got out of control.

WHOA! Bjelica and Afflalo fight!

The league announced Thursday that Afflalo has been suspended two games for throwing a haymaker. Both men were ejected from that game, but there is no further punishment for Bjelica (which is fair, Afflalo was the instigator here, Bjelica ended it with a headlock).

Glad to see this suspension was more than one game — if Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green get two games for an incident where there wasn’t a punch thrown, this had to be at least equal to that.

Apparently Afflalo's Compton sparring sessions didn't include how to throw a basic punch and the other guy engaged full mma mode.

A lot of hoopers throw punches like that. Shaq did against Brad Miller too. Straight punches get there first homies.

That altercation spoke volumes about what a Compton upbringing is worth.

That punch tells me he spent a lot of time in Bixby Knolls.
