Chill out, Juwan Howard.

I know you just want to stand up for your teammate, but the guy has 11 inches on the dude he’s “fighting.” Not to mention, maybe he shouldn’t get so upset about a guard trying to steal the ball from him, since that is pretty much his job. Considering he’s 7-foot-3, you’d think an easy way to keep the ball safe would just be to hold it over his head, like an eighth grader keeping a ball away from a third grader.

Plus, Juwan Howard, by just rushing in there and pushing JaVale McGee all willy nilly old-timer style, you’re going to get suspended. 63-year-old men should not be getting suspended, even though I understand that that’s how they played basketball back in the 1940s. Sorry, Juwan Howard, but basketball players are not “cagers” anymore. This is the 2010s, man. You’re going to throw your back out.

  1. I was at the game last night, and I fulfilled my TBJ fan duty by screaming “Chill Out Juwan Howard” during this fight.

  2. if he still doesnt get it:

    CHILL OUT JUWAN HOWARD!

    note for Z:
    that elbow on the chin is not cool.

  3. This is when you know you’ve made it.

  4. Hah, Howard should have stayed away…. Plus McGee would probably kick his ass anyway :D

    I dunno about the play before tho… I guess Z went a bit overboard trying to separate Wall from himself, I know that’s what big men are thought to do, swing a couple of times with your elbows apart to create space… But I surely think Wall reaction, with the mean face swingin was much more over the top? That might have actually been a punch?

  5. Wall thinks he’s tall, trying to uppercut Big Z. That’s the funniest part to me.

  6. Elbows from big men aren’t exactly uncommon in this league. Not cool, but not uncommon.

    It definitely looked like Wall punched Z IMO, Wall gets the over-the-top award in that exchange.

  7. That was certainly a punch by Wall. And it looked like McGee was about to attack Ilgauskas – Juwan was just trying to protect him (not to say that the way he did it was the right thing to do).

  8. He certainly chilled out when McGee squared up on him.

  9. YES! When I saw this I knew we needed a Chill Out Juwan Howard!

  10. That’s a hook, not an uppercut…

  11. That’s a hook, not an uppercut… Although I don’t know if “body hook” is actually a regular punch…

  12. I thought Wall got a glansing blow in on Z’s Johnsons – watch Z’s hip action, sure looks like he has been hit and is protecting against further damage.
    Didn’t show it in this clip but on the Score highlights you see Z give the ol Euro “horse dong up your ass” motion – priceless.

  13. This fuckn sucked. Kerby, eat a dick.
