SportsPotato: Serge Ibaka Lands Clean Right Hook to Blake Griffin’s Dick/Balls Area [VIDEO]

The 2014 NBA playoffs have been rather chippy, to say the least. During game 4 of the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder series yesterday, Thunder power-forward Serge Ibaka responded to a shove from Blake Griffin by switching to southpaw stance and landing a lead right hook directly to Griffin’s crotch. Griffin limped off downcourt following the punch, very much like a man who had just had his nuts racked.

Keep in mind that this happened in the very beginning of the game, when the score was still tied at zero. Indeed, a message had been sent early, though Ibaka later said the low blow was an accident. The Clippers went on to beat the Thunder by a score of 101-99, tying their series at 2-2.

SportsPotato: Josh McRoberts TKO’s LeBron James via Flying Elbow


(Props: watchnba201415 via Deadspin)

Near the end of last night’s NBA playoff game between the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Bobcats, Josh McRoberts hit LeBron James with a beautiful jumping elbow, sending James crashing to the court in apparent agony. In the NBA, that’s worthy of a flagrant foul. In the UFC, McRoberts would be pocketing $50,000 for Performance of the Night. The Heat hung on to victory, and are up 2-0 in their series against Charlotte.

Five NBA Players Who Could Crossover to MMA During the Lockout


If Chris Andersen had half the mean mug that Anthony Johnson has, he’d have a spot on this list.

With the NBA lockout in full effect, many players are beginning to weigh their options for ways to stay busy. Kevin Durant is considering playing overseas, while Nate Robinson is considering a jump to a more attractive lockout. With the way that things are looking, it shouldn’t be a surprise to see an NBA player decide to put on the four ounce gloves and try his hand at MMA.

Normally, lists that focus on tough NBA players are composed of cheap shots, sucker punches and bush league fouls. This is not one of them (Ed. note: For the most part, at least). This is also not a fusion of this year’s All Star teams made under the assumption that all it takes is a lot of success in one sport to be a professional MMA fighter. We already have numerous examples disproving this. One more rule: Retired NBA players, like Charles Oakley and Jerry Stackhouse, are ineligible.

Rather, this list will focus on current players who may realistically accept an MMA fight during the NBA lockout. Coincidentally, most of them are heavyweights. Let’s start by getting this guy out of the way as soon as possible:

5.) Ron Artest, F, Los Angeles Lakers
