You’re not going to choke my brother and sit there and smile about it. – Michael Beasley
Up by 25 with 9 minutes to go in the 4th quarter, Clippers’ Ryan Hollins was able to celebrate the Clippers 50th win earlier than his teammates by getting ejected for putting the Suns’ Goran Dragic in a headlock, jawing at the ref and almost getting into a fight with Michael Beasley who was also ejected.
Here’s how it went down according to Beasley.
He choked Gogi,” Beasley said of Hollins’ foul on Dragic. “These guys in this locker room are my family. They’re my brothers. You’re not going to choke my brother and sit there and smile about it. I feel like the only reason he did that was because it was Gogi. He’s bigger than Gogi. I’d do it a million times. I’d do it for anyone in this locker room. That’s not right to do anybody. You want to pick on somebody. I got a 7-footer to my right (O’Neal) that likes that kind of stuff. Don’t pick on our smallest guys and then to put him in a headlock and hold it for five minutes? I just wanted to get him off Gogi and he threw his fists up at me. That’s when the situation got heated.
Congrats to the Clips on their 50 win season. Shake my head at the Suns for losing their 52nd game of the season – worst in the West.
