Most of you know that I like to follow international basketball and well, I usually consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the game. However, I had not heard about the Jones Cup until I read about the Hamed Haddidi’s incident.
Current Memphis Grizzlies center Hamed Haddidi is playing for team Jordan and got into a little brew-haha with Team Iraq. After the little brawl, Jordan took their players off the court and forfeited the game.
Haddidi added a Mutombo finger-wag, kicked the basketball and got into a fight with a player who is shorter than him. I guess the Jones Cup brings out the worst in people.
