Violence and the NBA have an unfortunately lengthy history of intertwinement.
On-court attacks have been stymied by League-wide crackdowns - after incidents like Kermit Washington nearly killing Rudy Tomjanovich, and the Pacers nearly destroying the Palace of Auburn Hills - but away from games, players still often find themselves on both sides of bizarre conflicts.
Tony Parker, former Finals MVP, and jetpack enthusiast, lives an interesting life and is one of the best point guards in the game. His San Antonio Spurs came within seconds of winning the championship, but as fate would have it this year was the Miami Heat’s year.
After winning the title, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and other members of the Heat went to a club and partied with Drake and 100 bottles of Dom Perignon to celebrate, and even Spur Danny Green stopped by to give respect to the champs.
