When Washington Wizards forward Etan Thomas isn't busy extolling the virtues of Abe Pollin's prostate in lyrical poem form or reminding us that David Stern doesn't care about black people, apparently, he whittles away the hours getting in fights with teammate Brendan Haywood.
The deal: Thomas was angry about comments from Haywood's agent about Thomas, who recently "won" the starting job over Haywood. Thomas threw a punch, and Haywood "responded to the punch by body-slamming Thomas to the ground, tearing out at least two of Thomas' dreadlocks in the process." It's actually the second fight between the two; Haywood was suspended a game last year for another fight with Thomas.
We'll say this: We're not the least bit surprised Brendan Haywood is a hair-puller.
