Video: Serbia-Greece Game Ends In Brawl

Sometimes friendly matches aren’t so friendly. We turn to Wcco.com: ” The friendly Acropolis basketball tournament finished in a brawl as the last game between Serbia and Greece was abandoned with 2:40 to go when a fight broke out and the benches cleared on Thursday. Serb center Nenad Krstic was in the thick of the action; the benches cleared when he grabbed Greek forward Antonis Fotsis by the throat. He then threw a chair at Greek center Sofoklis Schortsanitis, who was pursuing him. The chair hit Greek center Yannis Bouroussis in the head. Bouroussis, who did not take part in the game because of a hand injury was last seen in the locker rooms looking to take on Krstic. Blood trickled from his wound. Fotsis had moved threateningly against Serb guard Milos Teodosic who had fouled him hard. A stunned crowd of about 5,000 at the Athens Olympic Arena watched players from both teams exchange punches and kicks. Two or three spectators entered the fray and were quickly shoved out of the arena.”

    Was there a kristic sighting? Oh yeah, there he is… didn’t finish watching it. He was pretty scared lol.

    I definitely wouldn’t like to be in front of an angry Sofo…

    nenad krstic? wow lol cant imagine him in a fight.. totally awesome bro

  • Ngoie

    Lol, they don’t want it with the Greek Shaq.
    But at the same time it’s sad.

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/ Diesel

    Well Sofoklis has 200 pounds on him. I’d back up too.

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/ Diesel

    The Serbs are going to take the heat for this because that’s what people do, blame the Serbs, but the Greeks instigated all that mess.

  • baronrajo

    Too bad game ended like this. Teodosic is main guilt for this fight. Lets FIBA punish him well.
    Greeting from Serbia

  • http://soundcloud.com/boy-sanchez Boy Sanchez

    Teodosic is in Olympiakos and Fotsis in Panathinaikos, the two biggest rivals in Greek sports history. That answers a lot of questions…

    these teams could potentially meet in the quarter-finals at the World’s…

  • Ian

    @Matt, we can only hope

  • tgm

  • nastierthanu4

    I love when cats throw chairs. It’s just completely unnecessary. Plus it reminds me of the boondocks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMt55fi7ZQQ&feature=related

  • ab_40

    good luck darko wasn’t there to rip his own shirt and feel like the hulk like he did in memphis a few years ago. btw these guys can’t fight for isht. But hey these teams are young and obviously easy to f with. The worlds are gonna be crazy

  • http://www.twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    KRSitic-One going in!

  • Overtime

    Dumbass move by Kristic with the chair. Fair play if ur backing up, but dont back up nd then come back with a chair…then back away again.

  • PlanetAsia14

    I agree, the chair was unnecessary, just shows how big of a pu$$y Kristic is.

  • MusketeerX

    Well at least they waited until the end of the game…

  • http://Www.gmx.net Darksaber

    Why am i not surprised Fotsis (and Teodosic) were in the midst of this. A few months ago, the Greek Playoff finals between Olympiakos and Panathinaikos had to be ended prematurely because of riots breaking out in the stands, the Arena looked like an 80′s soccer stadium with firecrackers and whatnot being thrown at the Pana players. On the court, Milos was behaving like the spoilt brat he has become (Euroleague MVP award has gone to his damn head!) and was hacking Pana players all series long. And there might not be a dirtirr player on the planet than that f**ker, Fotsis, a player i’ve luved to hate now for years.

  • VinCE

    Don’t mess with Shaq!….uhh i mean…

  • http://Www.gmx.net Darksaber

    Last week Serbia DESTROYED Slovenia at a friendly, in Slovenia! This team is scary, stacked at each position. Krstic and Eurocup winner Perovic will man the middle, a soft but very looong center unit, the young and taaallll Guards Teodosic, Markovic, Rasic, csn all stroke the 3 and defend with grit. And then there are guys like the bull Macvan, a guy who will give most teams fits (think Charles Barkley with less hopes & attitude but a better jumper and loads of heart). The way they disposed of European Champ finalist Slovenia was utterly impressive. If this team gets to the elimination round, watch out.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    Whats that little move these guys do, as the brush a clenched fist up at the other guy then slap/pat him on the head or chin???… IF you want to throw a punch…. Watch these teams and others as well in the EU STACK their line ups with Zangeifs and Ryu’s…USA won’t stand a chance as we go over there with nothing more than Balrog and Guile

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    @Anton…hahaha – that chair throwing was completely funny. There were moe of HIS team mates in that little huddle than anyone else, and the dude he clocked was actually making sure he didnt get his eggs scrambled by euro shaq…!??!

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    On another note: how cool was that commentary of the brawl. Those guys were jabbering away… Wooooh!

  • The Philosopher

    Shout out to Victor Page…

  • Groves

    kristic threw a fkn chair =/

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    … that’s just messed up.
    Nenad came off looking like a massive punk though after backing away and then delaying before throwing a chair.
    All of these guys will get 1+ game FIBA suspensions.

  • flimo

    Serbs..no surprise.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Not cool that the guy Krstic hit with the chair was one of the guys trying to keep the peace. I don’t think he meant to hit that guy, but why would you throw a chair randomly with nothing but peacekeepers and your own teammates in front of you?
    And LOL @ nastier’s Boondocks clip.

  • T-Money

    Nenad is kind of a b-tch. You wait until the guy turns his back to slug him then you back up like a punk when he comes at you. ANd then you throw a chair? Punk. / allen: i see you.

  • Diesel

    @flimo – what does that mean you piece of sh¤t

  • JoeMaMa

    Nenad Krstic hits a guy from behind. The guy then turns around and Krstic runs away. He then throws a chair, injuring someone, and could have easily taken an eye out. He then runs away again.
    I hope he’s suspended from all FIBA games for at least a year. And I hope David Stern finds some loophole to suspend him for as long as he suspended Ron Artest.
    Krstic isn’t representing his country; he’s an insult to Serbians who would rather see their team win games than engage in his cowardice and idiocy. What a punk. PUNK.

  • pennydunk_1

    Too bad you can’t understand what the lame broadcasters are saying

  • http://soundcloud.com/boy-sanchez Boy Sanchez

    @pennydunk…: This is a replay, so the broadcasters just describe what they saw before and now.

  • pennydunk_1

    @Boy Sanchez Either you condeamn both of the teams,or you dont speak at all. What they saw was a brawl between two teams, no need to kiss their national team’s fans’ asses now

  • JTaylor21

    Now Kristin wants to act tough. Where was all this aggressiveness when he was playing last year? Europeans are “fresh out the oven” pillsbury dough soft.

  • JTaylor21

    Haha, great one The Philosopher. Also shutouts to one of V.Pages’ many victims, Ashraf Amaya.

  • neron

    Greeks started…nothing else to say…if there is gona be punish, they must punish players on both sides, but i think that FIBA will punish just Serbia like always… :SSS

  • http://soundcloud.com/boy-sanchez Boy Sanchez

    @pennydunk…: Man, the broadcasters are Greek. They both kept distance from the incident but what would you do if you were in their position..? They slightly put the blame on Teodosic for starting this and Krstic for acting the way he did. But I assure you, I watched the media here in Greece today in the morning and they all condemn what happened last night. There are 2 things that I know, 1) I could never know how this started because I wasn’t on the court and 2) it takes two people to start a fight.

  • JoeMaMa

    Krstic is a moron. A scared little girl. A heartless coward. He needs to be suspended for a good long time from every league. An idiot. A joke.

  • lowly

    I see alot of coward in this video ..

  • tavoris

    os Krstic can get into brawls in Greece, yet shy away from contact in the NBA? really?

  • tavoris

    Sofo reminds me of an ogre the way he was clubbing his fist down on dude

  • MVPballer

    You dont want it with Baby Shaq. That boy can throwdown.

  • Sparker

    some melo at the garden sh*t! good damn it’s lucky that these HUGE men don’t know how to throw a punch. i say krstic not playing in the worlds, though. that type of move leads to time off.

  • adams

    We do all agree that in an all-out Deathmatch the current Team USA would be beaten to a pulp by both the Greeks or the Serbs?

  • newzealanderinlondon

    Lame scrap – i swear basketball players are the softest – i have been playing rugby league and bball my whole life and dropped a couple of ballers simply cos they’re soft and im hard from rugby. Upper cuts and hooks baby – samoan styles!

  • Shadojoker

    @nastierthanu4…LOL at the Boondocks reference!! i was just thinking the same thing..whenever someone throws a chair = chaos!

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/ Diesel

    It makes both teams look bad. Krstic definitley comes out looking the worst. Especially since he threw the chair after everything had basically calmed down.

  • http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/chicago-bulls-confidential/ Diesel

    @Allenp…I see what you did there.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Krstic just got arrested by police btw.

  • http://www.twitter.com/RealBisi Bisi

    This guy Krstic should have been in Malice at the Palace throwing chairs. Aaron McGruder would be proud.

  • http://soundcloud.com/boy-sanchez Boy Sanchez

    Krstic got arrested by police in the morning and he has been released after a few hours, because Bouroussis didn’t sue him after all. Also, as I hear from the news, there will be no punishment for the teams or the players involved, at least before the World Championship starts.

  • SK

    It looks like the Greece player Fotsis spits at Teodosic (around the 0:11 mark). Teodosic didn’t do anything other than defend himself against that punk, and that’s what started this mess.
    Whether or not Teodosic was hacking or flopping doesn’t make a difference. Especially if Fotsis is as dirty as some of the commentators mentioned.
    Can’t speak for Krstic, he just lost it. Darko got suspended by the NBA a couple years ago for his interview rant so I can imagine Krstic getting at least a few games and maybe being fined by OKC.

  • 6marjons

    kristic might not play another basketball game the way things are going. good to see sekou smith standing up for his guys

  • http://www.slamonline.com wayno

    I better see Nenad Kristic in the next WWE game for Xbox…

  • Jelte

    What a disgrace. Stupid, spoiled millionaires. I guess Nenad is frustrated because he constantly gets dunked on in the NBA.

  • jammal o

    that was weak
