17. Card Game
“Tony Allen and O.J. Mayo’s fight on the team plane pretty much sealed the deal on the NBA’s anti-gambling rule on team planes,” “tb1-6” observed. Allen was a great defensive player but a very volatile individual. His fight with Mayo came while they were teammates in Memphis. The pair were on a Grizzlies team flight when their card game got heated.
However, Allen and Mayo didn’t receive the memo. It all kicked off because Allen demanded that Mayo pay up. But his teammate refused and began to antagonize him. Then Allen punched Mayo in the face. Their teammates separated them but the scandalous story seized the imaginations of fans. It’s definitely one of the wildest teammate fights out there.
