Video: Don’t Kiss Z-Bo, He Will Punch You in the Face

by Marcel Mutoni

Especially if your name happens to be Louis Amundson, who Zach Randolph claims tried to kiss him last night during their tussle.

Check out what Z-Bo did in Phoenix as his Clippers were in the process of getting demolished by the Suns:

You stay classy, Zach Randolph.

From the looks of things, Amundson did absolutely nothing to deserve a facial re-arrangement courtesy of Zach’s fist. On a seemingly innocuous box out, Randolph knocks Louis to the ground with his forearm, and after the pony-tailed forward collects himself, he is greeted with a swift punch to the face.

A suspension is obviously on the way; the only question is how long should Randolph be forced to sit in street clothes?

    Glad to see the old Z-Bo back.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    I think this is going to be of the 3+ game variety. It was definitely a closed fist and I still can’t tell what exactly Amundson did to piss Z-BO off that bad.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    F*ck him….give him 10 games.

  • Torrance

    There goes the Clippers’ season!

  • Andy

    Some would say that could constitute crowd incitement. I’m with Eboy…double figures seems about right.

  • IndyB.

    give him half of the remainder of the season…

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    @ciolkstar: he is a white guy with a pony tail that apparently went a little too far into Zach’s personal space. pony tail + standing really nearby a person = a try to kiss by his definition

  • Todd Spehr

    Torrance, the Clippers still had a season as of last night?

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Things MUST have been said prior to that incident. I mean, Almundson basically got thrown to the ground, stared down, almost stepped over and punched in the face. Then again, Z-BO is a crazy lunatic so you never know… I’m just surprised at how soft the league is now. Nobody is willing to step up for a teammate anymore. Then again, I’m not sure that Shaq knows his first name.

    Maybe Z-Bo is pissed by Amundson’s fratboy look

  • http://slamonline.com Chris O’Leary

    10 was the first number that came to mind for me. Maybe Amundson told Z-Bo the Clippers’ record as they went for the rebound.

  • jay

    the clippers season was long gone before this. At least now Z-bo can show them how deep the rabbithole goes…

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    I bet there was some banging back and forth before the incident, and it may have just been the way Amundson hopped up after the initisl foul. Z-BO is a complete moron though. And yeah, I never know which way the league will interpret fights, but that was pretty much unprovoked and comepletely unneccessary, 10+ is not out of the question. Oh well, it looks like Eric Gordon will have to keep lighting it up for my fantasy team.

  • Ken

    LOL at Torrance. Great joke.

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/nba/overdribbling/index276-pa30.html chiqo

    10? i was under the impression that punches warranted one game. maybe two.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    i will now call Louis ‘Sunshine’ in honor of the QB from ‘Remember the Titans’.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Izzo

    Um,NBA players don’t much like the gheys,do they?

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    BETCATS ftw

  • riggs

    double digit suspension, i dont know why he tries to act hard all the time during games, when ive seen him get punked at parties here in NY

  • riggs

    haha Sunshineeeeeeee

  • Lz – Cphfinest3

    10+ for sure – if that happened in Walmart, hustling for the last turkey the day before thanksgiving, Z-Bo (the 5th ninja turtle) would be facing jailtime.

  • donlaker

    dude if you want a vacation from the clippers
    you should have punched mike dunleavy and donald sterling…

  • http://myk31.com Myk

    z bo is an idiot. the step up and the stare down prior to the punch were necessary too?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBQEmmgDl9I Boing Dynasty

    Im completly okay with this…

  • CHE

    I think you should let the fools fight. They do it in hockey. Let them knock each others teeth out. I want to see Kobe and Shaq go at it just once. lol

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBQEmmgDl9I Boing Dynasty

    Ya Myk, they make it waay more gangster.

  • rikson

    or maybe Elgin Baylor – wait, never mind…

  • Sebastian B. O. Bunionstow, esq.

    Could be a new feature at the All Star Game, “Punch Out.” Perhaps somewhere before HORSE/GEICO?

  • http://www.twofistedpress.com Pve84

    I sincerely hope that Amundson said something SERIOUS to provoke Zach…for one adult to punch another full in the face after having already knocked them to the floor over foul or some trash talk is ridiculous, especially when you’re being paid thousands of dollars per game. I’d like to hear/read a more detailed version of Zach and Amundson’s version of events. And yes the fact that there Zach didn’t even get a light shove from any of the Suns is a bit deplorable…I’m glad to see that they’re scoring again though, even it’s against the Clippers.

  • tenorca

    Louis Admundsun: “We got Zach Randolph….EJECTED, y’all!”

  • joe

    Z-Bo probably just didn’t want to guard Shaq for the rest of the night or tonight!

  • riggs

    amundson has some slow ass reflexes though, he couldve dodged that punch easily, even caught randolph with a counter

  • http://allanzuss@yahoo.com Mendel

    Although I really enjoyed it, it was a good follow up in the day to Langs Best Line Heard at Party, but it was uncalled for and very dirty. I think he should get like 10 games. You cant just do stuff like that.

  • http://allanzuss@yahoo.com Mendel

    Thats why I don’t really like to shoot ball in bad hoods because you never know when some jaily will bust you in the head for talking smack or for giving him a cleaqring box out

  • underdog

    What a stupid player.

  • doyouwantmore

    I think Zach Randolph is a big, lazy chump who likes to start s***. He probably did this so he could take a few days off.

  • http://www.alloutblitz.com cordeazy

    NO SUSPENSION!!!! that was HILLARIOUS!!! i’ve never seen someone get punched at the free throw line essentially all the way to the baseline. Why did he walk that far away? why? he should get suspended for having one of the oddest past punch reactions in the history of punching….Ok, ZBO 1 game.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    amundson was probably a little too far in zbos siht in a blowout for zachs liking. amundson is one of those type of guys. im thinking 3-5 games suspended.

    Z-Bo is gangster…..

  • Bballrehab

    Randolph is nothing but a moron. It’s a shame someone that dumb can earn millions.

  • vtrobot

    i like 10 but it will be 4 or 5. that is odd how no one is sticking up for teammates much these days. maybe they’ve been so well trained after the boris and amare suspensions for leaving the bench. zbo is a an idiot, but if you have a ponytail, you have to realize that you’re probably 5 or 6 times more likely to get punched.

  • Blinguo

    Damn, What would he have done if he got the Wedgie Evans…

  • http://www.nba.com JE

    Amundson took that hit like a champ. Imagine getting hit in the face by a guy that big and NOT falling to the ground.

  • ColdVicious24

    on the floor:
    Goran Dragic… rookie who wouldn’t fight his little brother, Jared Dudly… prob wouldn’t help his little brother in a fight, Matt Barnes… probably out of phoenix next year and Alando Tucker… who did a little hold back on zbo… its not like the suns had team chemistry before tonight though.

  • Fat Lever

    Amundson just got RONDO’D

  • Fat Lever

    Blinguo, if it came down to Reggie Evans and Z-Bo, my money’s on Reggie. If you watch Sixer games like I do, you know that man is certifiably crazy.

  • http://double-technical.blogspot.com Zee!

    Thanks for playing my fantasy team for the week Z-Bo.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Cub Buenning

    I knew there would be slack for the guy that got punched.

    Frat-boy, sunshine……

    Give the Colorado boy some love!

  • Blinguo

    Is Reggie crazy enough to Wedgie Randolph, today?

  • thesubwayconnection

    Boo. Video taken down?

  • h00paholic@hotmail.com

    it was more or less of a really hard bi$%& slap….his fist wasnt closed….else dude would have hit the ground…..

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    If Ruben Patterson tried to kiss Zach Randolph, Zach would’ve taken it, then ran out of the building.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Randolph is suspended for TWO games. Is this a joke? He decks somebody in the face and gets two games. Wow.

    Hey Louis Amundson is as scrappy and ‘blue collar’ as they come and he’ll be AWESOME when the Suns have to play the SPurs in the first round…THEN we’ll see who’s getting B-slapped… I tell you now you thought the last few years was a battle scene between SA and PHX…hell no. This year the sun is going to explode. supernova stylee`.

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    lol @ doyouwantmore! you were right: he went to visit his sick dad in indiana right after he heard about the suspension. Now, maybe some of you can hold back on the harsh comments a little. His dad is seriously ill and that kind of stress can easily trigger agression.
