Balkman Melts Down and Chokes Teammate.
Renaldo Balkman melts down and chokes his own teammate.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is the very definition of losing control. Balkman needs to talk to Metta Wolrd Peace’s psychologist.
Renaldo Balkman was drafted by the New York Knicks in 2006 and then had an uneventful and brief stint with the Denver Nuggets before finding his true calling and heading to Philippine Basketball Association.
With theatrics like this though, it’s safe to say the Lakers must now be interested. Just think of the possibilities, if you could put Metta World Peace and Renaldo Balkman on the same team. You could still lose a lot of games, but dominate nonetheless.
No word on what the consequences are for choking your own player in the Philippine Basketball Association, but I’m sure David Stern would not have approved. I think this isnt’ the last we’ve seen of Balkman. If we have learned anything from watching Dennis Rodman over the years, it’s that when a car wreck is set in motion it usually takes years to play out on the floor. Can anyone say UFC second career?
