With the Lakers facing the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, we can't wait for the rematch between Metta World Peace and beard-boy James Harden. Really James, that 'bow to your dome was an accident. 

Here are the Top Five most violent moments in Lakers history.



5. On Behalf of Lakers Fans, Rick Fox Goes Upside Doug Christie's Head

The Lakers' last, real, bad-blood rivalry continued during a 2002 pre-season game against the Sacramento Kings, when Fox fouled Christie by elbowing him to the floor. They trash-talked each other and Fox gave Christie a shove to the mug. Christie countered  with a punch to Fox's pretty face, and shit was on. Both players were ejected, and Fox went after Christie in the tunnel and put him in a headlock. Security finally separated the players. 


4. Shaq and Charles Barkley Go at It

During the first half of a 1999 game against the Houston Rockets, Shaq caught Barkley with an accidental elbow to head, after Chuck grabbed a rebound. Not in a grateful mood, Barkley threw the ball at Shaq's head. Shaq responded with a left that nipped Barkley, who then body-slammed him to the floor. Southern boy know how to git down. Both were ejected, fined and suspended for the rematch two days later.

Great quote by TV commentator/Celtics apologist Tommy Heinsohn seconds after McHale clotheslined Rambis:  "It's all part of the game!"

Shaq and Barkley were just rolling on the floor. It looked like they were playing Twister. I would of easily replaced it, either with Bynum's body check on JJ Barea or when Derek Fisher almost knocked the Houston Rocket's Luis Scola into next week.

Professional sports breed violence.  They should be banned.

Honorable mention: Andrew Bynum clotheslining J.J. Berea in 2011 playoffs. Bynum couldn't wait to rip his Laker jersey off as he heads to the showers.Bynum gets a 5-game suspension; Berea gets a headache and an NBA championship ring.
