It has begun!! New Celtic shoves newer (last year) Cavalier after the whistle!
What I saw: Williams and Williams both half-heartedly went up for a meaningless rebound after the buzzer. Shelden knocks Mo to the ground in a basketball related play- as in both players reach for the ball, one goes down. Mo gets up and shoves Shelden and Shelden two-arm shoves back. Rabble-rousing ensues!
I don’t know who actually started it. I’m going on what I saw the first time because I was so excited to post about it I missed the replay.
Rest assured it’ll get replayed and replayed and replayed and we can adequately assess what happened and perhaps I will have to turn my Homerism Filter on.
We shall see! Damn I’m fired up!
UPDATE: I just saw the replay and Mo Williams, come on man! Shelden is going hard! If you want to get in the trenches with a banger than that’s what happens. I seriously don’t care what anyone says, there was definitely contact, but Mo needs to ease up and get over it. He didn’t intentionally throw him to the ground.
Oh I can just hear Cavs fans now…
