In our last You Tube Gold, about the Kermit Washington/Rudy Tomjanovich punch, we mentioned the Malice at the Palace, so it seems fair to follow up on that too.
According to Wikipedia, “[a]fter the game, the NBA suspended nine players for a total of 146 games, leading to the players losing $11 million in salary. Five players were charged with assault, and eventually sentenced to a year of probation and community service. Five fans also faced criminal charges and were banned from attending Pistons home games for life. The fight also led the NBA to increase security between players and fans, and to limit the sale of alcohol in games.”
