The Palace of Auburn Hills, 2004


The Pacers and Pistons brawl.

It was bad enough when the players started fighting on the court, but the situation quickly grew out of hand when Ron Artest started fighting with fans in the stands. Nine players were suspended without pay while fans learned a valuable lesson: Don't throw a cup of beer on Artest -- now, ironically, Metta World Peace -- no matter how much you've had to drink.
