Artest looks like he'd probably punch you then back off and scamper back into the group. Carmelo pulled the same crap in the Knicks brawl. Typical gangster bullshit, it's not like these guys are brave or anything. Ibaka and Artest would be like any fight between two even weight classes who have little to no experience professionally fighting, whoever got lucky with a shot or a misstep by the other guy would win. Artest is unstable and would probably just flail like any NBA player in a fight, a composed and experienced fighter would wait for him to make whatever moronic move he had in his mind, and deck him quickly and efficiently.
I hope you guys realize that those who make it out of third world countries such as Ibaka are much different then those you see on television. They are generally the 1% in third world countries... he was probably spoiled there considering both his parents were basketball players. Do you really expect others to believe he fought wars during the day and balled at night? Please, dude lived it up on congo... he's no fighter.
Lol @ everybody acting like Ibaka was some type of soldier or something in the Congo civil war. That war actually ended when Ibaka was 12 years old. He then lived in Spain for his teenage years and was drafted to the NBA at 18. He was a child during the war and then left to Spain when the war was over.
Assuming Ibaka is some sort of guerilla warfare fighter is like assuming every player from Chicago or LA is a hardcore gang banger. It's just stupid.
Not saying Ibaka was one, but have you ever heard of child warriors of the Congo?
