muoneke attacked after game in china

What in the world...? In China, basketball player Liu Wei of the Shanghai Sharks has been fined and suspended by the Chinese Basketball Association over his part in a post-game attack on former NBA forward Gabe Muoneke, who plays for the Yunnan Running Bulls: EX-NBA PLAYER MUONEKE ATTACKED AFTER GAME IN CHINA.

Muoneke, who has played for Houston, Charlotte and Utah, was uninjured in the November 28 incident following a game between the Running Bulls and the Sharks. Liu and teammate Cai Liang must each pay a 50,000-yuan fine and serve a 10-game suspension. Their team was fined 100,000 yuan.

After clashing on the court as they wrestled for the ball, Liu, Cai and other members of the Sharks apparently confronted Muoneke as he was leaving the stadium with his wife, three children and mother-in-law.

Muoneke was hit by a water bottle and chased into a corner, where he was surrounded by Shark players. The attack was captured on security cameras, and the footage was reviewed as part of an investigation.

You've got to be kidding me. What kind of idiots do something like this? To a guy who's with his family! How stupid do the Sharks look now? Gabe Muoneke actually has a blog entry about what happened during the altercation here: China madness. I'm just shaking my head. (Thanks, Eric.)
