Good-Guy Tussle

Got back to the hotel in time to watch highlights of Keyon Dooling and Ray Allen in an all-out brawl in Seattle.
That was one of the strangest things I've seen, only because Keyon and Ray are two of the genuinely nicest guys in the NBA. I always make it a point to talk to Ray whenever the Heat plays his team, and he's always great. And Keyon last season was one of the nicest guys I've ever covered.
So there must have been some nasty physical contact going on between those two for them to get into it that furiously. I don't know of a history between the two, either.
And not only was the on-court fight strange, but Keyon tried to get to the Sonics locker room to go after Ray again. That just floored me. And this was Keyon's first game since Nov. 25 because of a foot injury.
I guess it just goes to show that when competitive juices start flowing, it can get the best of anyone.
Doesn't have anything to do with the Heat (other than the Keyon connection), but I just thought it was worth a mention.
