We here at That NBA Lottery Pick always like to embrace debate but we don’t condone violence of any sort regardless of how heated the debate gets.
Last week, three people were stabbed at the Ba’runi Hotel & Grille in Baden, Pa and the violent situation started over an argument whether Michael Jordan or LeBron James was the better NBA player.
The folks over at NESN have the full details:
Michael Landeros and his nephew, Armando Encinas, were reportedly drinking at the Pittsburgh area establishment when they began engaging in heated arguments with fellow patrons. They debated whether LeBron James was better than Michael Jordan and expressed their distaste for the Steelers, Harmony Township police chief Jim Essek told WTAE, and Encinas began swinging a knife when police tried to defuse the situation.
None of the injuries are reportedly serious, and both culprits were arrested. Landeros was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and simple assault, and Encinas faces charges of attempted criminal homicide and aggravated assault.
Below is the WTAE news report of the incident:
