Little white dude, but he f***ing tough as nails” – Bonzi Wells recalls getting into a fight during his first-ever NBA practice

Fights happen in the NBA. Competitive guys going at it for a game they are extremely passionate about is bound to yield some incidents where tempers flare and fists fly. It certainly doesn’t happen as frequently as it once did, but it still happens occasionally.

Bonzi Wells, though, may have made history when it comes to fighting. That’s because he somehow managed to get into a fight with John Crotty in his first-ever NBA practice.

Bonzi Wells vs. John Crotty

Wells was drafted with the 11th overall pick in 1998 before he was quickly flipped to the Portland Trail Blazers. The 6’5″ guard was just happy to be practicing with his new team until he made an enemy out of Crotty.

The latter was an undersized veteran guard fighting for a spot on the team. He became frustrated with Wells beating him in a drill, which resulted in him shoving Bonzi and then tripping him when the rookie guard tried to walk away from the situation.
