Top 10 worst fights and cheap shots in NBA history

  • 10. Raja Bell vs. Kobe Bryant, 2006

    (CBS/AP) In the 2006 playoffs between the Lakers and Phoenix Suns, Bryant had the ball at the top of the key and was being guarded by Bell. When Bryant made a move to his right, Bell took his left arm and wrapped it around the neck area of the Lakers guard, throwing him to the floor. After the game, Bell said he was retaliating for taking an elbow in the jaw from Bryant. It was one in a series of memorable dustups between Bryant and Bell, who later acknowledged a lack of judgment. Bryant apparently got over it — four years later, he was trying to lure Bell to sign with the Lakers.
