The Charlie Villanueva Cheap Shot Video

By now most of you have seen this.  If not, here's your chance.  If you missed out, the Cavaliers and Pistons played a game last night and there was, well, a bit of a scuffle.  The two involved - Charlie Villanueva of the Pistons and Ryan Hollins of the Cavaliers - got a bit tangled up, leading to both men getting ejected.

It didn't end there.  Villanueva had to be twice restrained from going after Hollins, and even after the ejection was trying to get at Hollins in the Cavaliers locker room.  Talk about poor sportsmanship!

A look at the video sees that the instigator - at least in terms of the final confrontation - was a Villanueva-left-hook to the jewels of Hollins.  In other words, Villanueva broke the code of the athlete.  No matter what, never, ever, go to the loins.

I expect Villanueva will hear from Mr. Stern about his behavior, considering it happened on the same floor that Ron Artest fought fat guys in the stands in Detroit.
