Former San Antonio Spurs player Pops Mensah-Bonsu, who is now playing for Galatasaray, has been suspended three games for brawling in a recent game against Olympiakos Piraeus during a Euroleague Game.
Apparently Pop's team and Olympiakos are bitter rivals and things got very heated towards the end of the game when a Greek player forearmed Pop's in the back of the head while going for the rebound. That's when things got messy and Pop's retaliated. Bonsu threw a punch back and the fighting continued.
Check out the fight.

San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been one to embrace social media early on, and utilize it to be able to deliver his own message.
This apparently was not lost on NBA fans who voted in Hoopshype's Tweeter of the Year voting. Ginobili won in a landslide with over 18,000 points and 520 #1 votes, over 400 votes over second place finisher Kobe Bryant.
Although the Washington Wizards fell to the Milwaukee Bucks in overtime, Wizards guard John Wall provided us with one notable block.
As time was running down in the third quarter, Bucks guard Nate Wolters thought he had some time to hit a driving shot.
However, Mr. Wall had other thoughts and chasedown Wolters for the rejection:
