MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Grizzlies guards O.J. Mayo and Tony Allen got into a fight on the team’s charter flight Monday after a card game.
According to the report, which cited unidentified sources, Mayo owed Allen money following the game and became increasingly angry toward Allen when asked to settle the debt. Several players eventually had to separate the teammates.
Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace acknowledged the altercation in an e-mailed statement but provided no details about what caused the skirmish. He said: “The club considers the matter closed and will not comment further.”
Allen had 19 points in the Grizzlies’ 110-105 victory over Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. Mayo missed the game with bronchitis.
Poor etiquette. If you owe a man money it is on you as a man to pay up. Or else, Tony or one of his Chi-town boys may touch you up like he did on that infamous night in Chicago, http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2848099.
