25. Ruben Patterson vs. Zach Randolph
Both Patterson and Randolph had dark pasts. Patterson was a former juvenile delinquent, while Randolph was a convicted domestic abuser. For some reason, the Trail Blazers decided that having a lengthy criminal record should be a requirement to play. Unsurprisingly, things didn’t go well.
Randolph sucker-punched Patterson in the face when the latter got into an argument with fellow ‘Jail Blazer’ teammate Qyntel Woods. Then Randolph received a $100,000 fine and was suspended for two games. Needless to say, this feud simmered beneath the surface for a long time.
