    Watch An NBA Player Punch Another NBA Player Over Totally Legal NBA Play

    If any two teams should avoid punching during a game it should be the Pistons and the Pacers playing in Detroit.

    On Sunday, during the Pistons-Pacers game, Tyler Hansbrough set a pick for DJ Augustin on the Pistons' WIll Bynum.

    Totally legitimate basketball play by Hansbrough. No big deal, right? Wrong. Bynum was frustrated...

    And took out that frustration on Hansbrough's gut.

    But thankfully it didn't escalate. Bynum was just ejected and escorted off the court.

    Which is good, because these two teams have a bad history with violence at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
