And those too young to remember the “Malice at the Palace” can get a prime look inside one of the wildest — and most violent — endings to an NBA game in league history. A Nextflix docuseries in one of its episodes will feature the Nov. 19, 2004, brawl inside the Palace at Auburn Hills. The “Untold” trailer shows a lot of Ron Artest, former Pacers star now known as Metta Sandiford-Artest who first entered the stands that night, saying how he wants the full story out “frame by frame.” It also features an animated Stephen Jackson who proclaims “I’m never talking about this sh– again.”
Storyline: Malice at the Palace Documentary
Ten people (five players, four fans and Ben Wallace’s brother, David) were charged and pleaded guilty to varying assault or battery charges. Some blamed the players for the melee, some blamed the fans and the guy who threw the drink apologized in 2006 for the whole thing (and was the only person to serve jail time related to the incident). For more, you’ll have to check out Netflix on Aug. 10.
Davis suffered a knee sprain in Game 3 but played through the pain in Game 4; however, he took a hard fall in Game 4 and suffered a groin strain. From that moment on, the balance of the firepower tilted towards Phoenix, who ensued to blow out the Lakers in the final games of the series. Though it’ll never be known how things would’ve transpired with a healthy Davis, Metta World Peace believes the Lakers would’ve advanced when discussing his thoughts on the Bucks-Suns matchup and Giannis Antetokounmpo being a great player, via Chris Sheridan of BasketballNews.com: “Now imagine, Giannis, one of the greatest players in the league, doesn’t really have to go up against the greatest team, then you would say Giannis was going to win. Because the Lakers got hurt. The Lakers were going to beat Phoenix before Anthony Davis got hurt.”
The Big 3 draft took place on Monday evening and featured some notable names. In fact, former NBA Champion and Los Angeles Lakers star Metta World Peace was selected 9th overall in the first round and has joined the Trilogy. Metta World Peace in the Big 3 makes too much sense. Another former Laker– Earl Clark– went 2nd overall. Metta was previously a co-captain for the Killer 3s and will be joining a new team in 2021.
