PJ Hairston - YMCA Altercation


Seeing lots of posts on twitter saying that PJ punched a minor at a YMCA in Durham. Not sure how credible it is. Even if it is not true, it is disheartening that he would continue to be mentioned in things like this.

    Seeing lots of posts on twitter saying that PJ punched a minor at a YMCA in Durham. Not sure how credible it is. Even if it is not true, it is disheartening that he would continue to be mentioned in things like this.

     

    Also, i would try and post a link or image but i still cannot manage to figure out how to do it.

     

    This is the twitter link. I'm assuming that it's BS though.

     

    That has to be bullshit. NC State fans being NC State fans

    ok, please tell me how you posted that. i tried several things and couldn't get it to work. i copied the code from the embed tweet option but cant figure out what to do with it on this site.

    "@SpearsNBAYahoo: Hornets rookie PJ Hairston got into a minor altercation with a prep senior in a pickup game in Durham,NC,today his agent confirmed to Yahoo"

    FUCK

     

    Uhh....

    Didn't throw first punch

    Didn't throw first punch

     

    Says his agent. 

     

    Hope so. Might be a good idea to quit running it back at the Y now that you're a first round NBA pick trying to walk the straight and narrow.

    All you have to do is post the link that you get from hovering over the tweet's timestamp, like the link below. And the forum sotware handles the rest.

    Video of the incident has surfaced.

    He should probably just get to Charlotte now.

    He should probably just get to Charlotte now.

     

    Yeah, This.

    That's what I was saying when he had the party announcement: you've obviously done some partying already in your life. Now you have a very lucrative career.

    For what it's worth, haven't seen anything in the media about it yet. Maybe it wasn't as serious as people think. 

     

    Regardless, pretty clear that P.J. and Raleigh/Durham don't mix. Time to get an apartment in Charlotte, buddy. Better yet, bunk up with Al. He'll punch P.J. in the face if he starts this bullshit.

    Those rankings are kind of whack, honestly. Noel above Wiggins? 

     

    Only a summer league game, but... 

     

     

    Even though he was injured all season, he's also been working out with pro coaches for the last several months. 

     

    He had a better day than Hairston.

    Cliff is probably in his car driving up there right now to drag P.J. to Charlotte. 

     

    I will bet my avy that any interest we had in Lance Stephenson is kaput.

    I think that if Spears is reporting it, it is in the national media. The question is does anyone care (yet). Maybe it will get traction once Melo makes his "decision."

    I said it myself in the summer league thread, it was surprising. 19 points and only two rebounds.

     

    But it's SL. Cody averaged, what, like 16/9 last summer league?

    That's what I was saying when he had the party announcement: you've obviously done some partying already in your life. Now you have a very lucrative career. 

     

     

    He's actually had two "draft parties", the one that was the weekend of the draft and another on the 3rd in Raleigh 

    man i wonder how clifford & cho is feeling about this.  we've invested a lot in this guy and it took him like 10 whole days to already be involved in bad news? we need some of the lockeroom vets to seriously take this guy under their wing.

     

    but like bill simmons said; i'd rather have a guy that's gonna get in a little scrap here and there than a guy that has no competitiveness whatsoever

     

    and

    "The game got intense. The kid got too excited playing against P.J.," agent Juan Morrow said.

    "It's getting blown out of proportion because it's P.J., and he's home."

    The player on the other side of the altercation, Northern Durham small forward Kentrell Barkley, told HighSchoolOT reporter Zach Mayo that it happened, but didn't offer further detail.

    Well, he wasn't arrested. There's that. If it was serious, he'd probably be in some cuffs.

     

    I dunno, we'll probably never know what ACTUALLY happened unless someone posts a video. If the kid threw the first punch, I would've thrown back. Human nature. If P.J. started it, it's way more serious. Hopefully Hairston's agent is right and it's being blown out of proportion.

    I feel like that's a hashtag I'm going to have to get used to this season.

    "Shoving match" sounds way more palatable than "fist fight." Just saying. #PJOptimism
