One damn near loses a tooth, the other barely gets hit with the ball and folds like a cheap chair with a fat kid sitting on it.
The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has launched an investigation after a wild brawl broke out between Australia and the Philippines in their Basketball World Cup qualifying game at Bulacan, the Philippines, on Monday.
The fight, which included Milwaukee Bucks forward Thon Maker, spilled into the area behind the baseline, where video footage showed a chair being thrown at one of the players from a close distance.
The scuffle began in the third quarter of Australia's 89-53 victory following a collision in the lane.

While the guys fight for the cup, these girls take all the attention away from the field.
Iran player Milad Mohammadi was hailed by supporters across the globe after producing 'the greatest throw-in in World Cup history' during his team's defeat to Spain.
In the dying stages, with his team trailing 1-0, the wide man, kissed the ball and pointed to the sky before performing a forward roll as he shaped to throw.
But for some reason, he decided against letting go of the ball, aborting the throw-in at the last second.
Did he bottle it or just get it wrong? Who knows?
Mohammadi, who started the match as a substitute, did eventually take the throw-in, choosing to send it back towards his own half rather than launching it into the penalty area.
A streaker is recorded going on the field during a Canadian Football League. He evaded one security guard but was hit hard by defensive end Marcell Young. The streaker appeared to suffer from great pain.
An eagle-eyed neighbor helped crack the bizarre case of a former NFL star now accused in a slew of attacks on women.
It was just after 2:30 p.m. on June 7 when the Encinitas, Calif., resident spotted him: a muscled, hulking, 6-foot-4 stranger emerging from her 86-year-old neighbor’s mobile home.
He had no shirt on. And no reason to be there, she found when she confronted him.
“ ‘I’m just looking for my dog,’ ” she recalled him saying.
“I go, ‘What dog?’ and he said, ‘A red dog, Clifford.’ And I went, ‘There’s no dog here.’ ”
He hopped in a black SUV and left, but the woman called cops, who soon arrested a man near the trailer park on a burglary charge, according to a report.
It was Kellen Winslow Jr., once the highest paid tight end in the league and the son of San Diego Chargers Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow Sr.
Winslow, whose publicist downplayed the arrest, posted bail the next day and was released. But prosecutors say the incident was a critical clue for authorities who a week later charged Winslow Jr. over a string of sexual attacks from March to May 2018 on women in Encinitas., where he lives.
Winslow stands accused of targeting five women, ages 54 to 86, in charges including forcible sodomy, rape and kidnapping. If convicted, he could end up behind bars for the rest of his life.
Senator Ted Cruz has claimed the title as King of the Court after defeating Jimmy Kimmel in a charity basketball game.
The Republican politician, 47, and the late night host, 50, brought out their best moves and trashiest talk for the basketball game Saturday at Texas Southern University.

Earlier this week when Connecticut held its CIAC Track & Field Championships, the previous records for girls were broken in both the 100 and 200-meter runs. A transgender, won the events. Another transgender, was the runner up in the 100 meter dash. According to the Connecticut Post, the results are causing some controversy. “A lot of people have asked, can you run a separate race, can you put an asterisk next to their name, do something that shows there is a standard that is different from that?” said CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff. “When you get into that playing out, you have got civil rights issues.
“Then within the same gender, you are taking one population of the gender and you’re separating them and creating another class. That’s what Title IX speaks to. That’s what Office of Civil Rights guidelines speak to. You cannot discriminate based on gender. And in our case in Connecticut, gender is gender identity.” Yet what about the two girls who worked for years who got knocked out of the finals by Miller and Yearwood? And what about the two girls who finished seventh and eighth in the finals who were denied a chance to compete in the New England championships? “We do feel for them,” Niehoff said. “Fully agree it doesn’t feel good. The optic isn’t good. But we really do have to look at the bigger issues that speak to civil rights and the fact this is high school sports.”
Uh That's Hurt.
Oliver Rioux is only twelve but he's a star basketball player and now, a global sensation.
At 2.08metres, the Canadian preteen stands well above his opponents on the court and has already passed the average for most NBA players, of 2.01metres tall.
He rose to fame after a video of him smashing his opponents was shared online and within hours, viewed by over 1.25million people.
While much of the sports world has moved past the NBA Finals to the summer of LeBron James, Stephen Jackson isn’t quite ready to let go.
The former Golden State Warrior and NBA champion with the San Antonio Spurs lit into James Wednesday during an appearance on Fox Sports, taking him to task for quitting during the Finals and making excuses after the Cleveland Cavaliers got swept.
Stephen Jackson: LeBron James was ‘selfish’ when he hurt his hand punching a white board.
Jackson started his diatribe by calling out James for talking about his injured hand after the Cavs got swept and for injuring it in the first place by punching a white board after a brutal Game 1 loss.
“The series is over,” Jackson said. “There’s nothing you can do about it. You can’t go back and start over ’cause your hand hurts. It wasn’t a good decision by the guy you expect to carry your team.
“For him to do that, that was real selfish.”
For the first time in 32 years, the men’s World Cup is coming back to North America.
FIFA’s 200-plus member associations gathered in Moscow on Wednesday and voted to award 2026 World Cup hosting rights to the United States, Canada and Mexico.
The North American bid – the product of over a decade of planning and campaigning – beat out one rival bid, Morocco’s, by a vote of 134 to 65.
Almost cleared the pit.
Justify’s emergence as the only undefeated Triple Crown champion after Seattle Slew and the 13th horse overall to complete the rare sweep went from a feel-good story to one awash in controversy on Sunday.
Queens native Mike Repole, co-owner of fourth-place Vino Rosso and last-place Noble Indy in the field of 10, hopes Belmont Park stewards will question jockey Florent Geroux about his handling of Restoring Hope, Justify’s stablemate, for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.
“Justify is a super horse. He is a Triple Crown winner and he’s undefeated,” said Repole, emphasizing his admiration for the powerful, 6-for-6 colt. “But I can see the stewards looking into this over the next couple of days. I probably expect them to look into reckless riding by Florent and bring him in to question him about what he was thinking and what his tactics were.”
While Justify and Mike Smith, his Hall of Fame rider, smoothly accelerated after breaking from the rail to seize the early lead, Geroux rode vigorously to hustle Restoring Hope toward the front. He soon assumed a position just behind Justify and to his outside.
“It definitely seemed to me he was more of an offensive lineman than a racehorse trying to win the Belmont,” said Repole of 37-1 Restoring Hope, “and Justify was a running back trying to run for a touchdown.”
Gary West, who owns Restoring Hope, was livid about the handling of his horse.
Colby Covington, who won the interim welterweight UFC championship on Saturday night, said that he is going to visit the White House, unlike the “Filthadelphia Eagles.”
“I’m going to do what a real American should do. I’m bringing this belt to the White House and I’m putting it on Donald Trump’s desk,” Covington said in a post-fight interview.
Covington — who is known for his trash talking — went after the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, whom Trump disinvited to the White House last week after only a small Eagles contingent said they could attend. Trump cited differences with players concerning their stance on kneeling in protest during the National Anthem.
“I told everybody I was going to make the welterweight division great again and now I am going to celebrate like a real American should … unlike the Filthadelphia Eagles disrespecting our country’s flag by kneeling for the national anthem,” Covington said in a press conference after the fight.
NBA superstar LeBron James said Tuesday that, no matter who wins the NBA Finals, neither team will attend a Trump White House ceremony honoring the championship team.
James made the comments during a press conference ahead of Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
A reporter asked James if he had any thoughts about Trump disinviting the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from attending the customary White House ceremony, after many players said they would not attend.
“I actually just found out about it,” James said. “It’s typical of him. I am not surprised.”
“I mean, I know no matter who wins this series no one wants the invite anyways. It won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going,” James said.
Earlier this year James sounded off on Trump during an interview with ESPN, saying that Trump doesn’t “really give a fuck about the people.”
A match between two Brazilian football teams was brought to a temporary halt after players and fans were attacked by a mob of angry wasps.
The game, between Altos and Nacional-AM in Brazil's Serie D, had to stop for six minutes as both players and fans took cover from the winged insects.
Players and match officials lay on the pitch to avoid being stung until the swarm subsided.
The wasps are reported to have been a rare kind - the 'Marimbondos' - which are found only in Brazil and usually feeds on spiders.
Damn that kid almost got impaled!
This looks super painful, but we're glad that the boy eventually recovered and jogged off court.

Referee charity Ref Support UK have branded this sickening attack on an official as the 'worst assault of a match official on British soil'.
The attack occurred on Sunday during a cup final at New River, in Wood Green, in the Turkish Community Football Federation.
The ugly scenes came at the final whistle - after blowing for full time, the referee attempts to flee the pitch as a group tried to chase him.
As he crosses the half way line he is tripped by a flying kick before a man in what appears to be a Galatasaray home shirt rugby tackles him to the ground, leading to the mob kick him on the ground.
The league have opened an investigation into the incident, with one club and its player due for a disciplinary hearing.
This happened in the 12th round of the WBC light-heavyweight title between Quebec’s Adonis “Superman” Stevenson and Badou Jack “The Ripper.
