Old friend T.A. involved in fisticuffs


Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that former Celtic Tony Allen and Grizzlies guard OJ Mayo were involved in a fistfight of some sort Monday night. Mayo supposedly got the worst of it.

Woj reports that T.A. and Mayo were involved in some gambling/cards on the Grizzlies' charter flight on Monday. An "unpaid debt" and some running of the mouth by Mayo apparently fueled the fire and led to Tony cracking Mayo in the face.

Wojnarowski's full story is now up on Yahoo's NBA page, and CBS' Gary Parrish also has a brief post on the altercation.

Allen's been playing well of late for Memphis- he's averaged 8.5 points, 3.5 steals and 2 assists in his last 4 games.

    Typical TA. Has a 19pt game – career high probably – including TWO 3s!!, a couple of assists and 3 steals…. and that night has a fight with one of the team’s star. Up, down, up, down… that’s our boy.

    B welshes on the bet AND gets belligerent.
    B CONTINUES the ‘conversation’ and gets up in A’s face.
    A warns B to back off.
    B does not.
    A opens can of whupass.
    These are the accounts of those on the scene/know the facts.
    Yeah, B def deserved it.
    Good Tony!
    Extra points for not ‘going Arenas’ on the mofo.
