Video: Von Wafer’s comedy of errors against Wizards

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s one thing to miss a dunk. It’s another thing to miss a dunk and celebrate prematurely. It’s even worse to miss a dunk, celebrate prematurely, and inadvertently cause your teammate to travel.

The Boston Celtics’ Von Wafer did all three on one play against the Washington Wizards. Click the video below and get at HoopsVibe News with thoughts.

West and Wafer make peace, laugh off Friday’s brawl

Delonte West and Von Wafer have moved on from their locker room fight on Friday and were laughing about it on Sunday.

"I'm competitive, he's competitive, as long as it's for the betterment of the team, there's nothing wrong with healthy competition and pushing each other to get better," West said. "Things went a little far, but at the same time, we were able to move past that. We're professionals."

Asked if he felt the two had patched things up, West added: "Oh yeah, no question. We laughed about it [Sunday]."


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Boys will be boys, I guess.

Yesterday, Delonte West and Von Wafer laughed off Friday’s scuffle, saying their rumble in the jungle was due to both players’ competitive streak getting the better of them –and nothing more. 

This would fly if it was West and Wafer’s first confrontation; however, Friday’s tilt was The Rematch. These two reportedly went head-to-head earlier in the month.

On the one hand, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers must like his role players showing such intensity in training. After all, practices are the games for West and Wafer.

On the other hand, Rivers won’t like spare parts – West and Wafer – making national headlines and creating a distraction.

If there’s another incident, the Celtics, a patient organization, will take action against these two.

Rumor: Celtic teammates Delonte West and Von Wafer brawl at practice?

Celtics guards Delonte West and Von Waver were involved in a physical altercation, team president Danny Ainge confirmed to the Boston Herald. The two players were guarding each other in a game of three-on-three when West repeatedly fouled Wafer, leading to the incident.


HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: These things happen. During practice, teammates lose their cool.

No big deal, right?

Well, wrong. This incident is a big deal for Delonte West and Von Wafer –two troubled players who need to steer clear of drama if they want to keep their jobs.

West has had mental health issues, been in trouble with the law, and involved in a bizarre rumor he had ‘relations’ with a former superstar teammate’s mom.

Wafer is trying to resurrect his career after failing in Europe. In the NBA, he often rubbed coaches and teammates the wrong way.

So this donnybrook won’t help either player. Not one bit.
