Default Bill Cartwright whoops Isiah Thomas

Starts @ 2:18 ^^ ( More replays and angles in that footage)

Man I hate Isiah Thomas so much. I am so glad Cartwright whopped his ass. Although it has more to do with his actions off the court than on the court.

Come on now, Zeke is like 6'0" and Cartwright is 7'0".. Zeke is still my boy. The dude had stones. He did not fear anyone.

Where do you see Cartwright whipping Isiah's ass? Cartwright didn't even land a punch. The most significant blow landed during that exchange was a short left hook by Isiah. Isiah actually fractured his left hand landing that punch and missed a few weeks of the season but the Pistons still won that game (an April regular season contest) and the championship that year. That was the 6th regular season game between the teams that year and the fight had been brewing a while with Cartwright already having "accidently" elbowed Isiah giving him 6 stitches during a January contest.

Cartwright was a tough guy who was known for holding opposing centers (like Patrick Ewing) below their career scoring averages due to his flailing elbows. Cartwright gave many players stitches through the years and even used to draw the ire of (and start fights with) his Bulls teammates in practice with his elbows. He certainly didn't whip Isiah's ass though, Isiah's upbringing, competiveness, desire to win and leadership ensured that he was always ready for situations like this...

There was too many people in the middle of it. I believe that if it didn't get broke up Cartwright would have pounded Isiah's little ass.
