This is simple... At the end of the Nov. 19, 2004 Pacers-Pistons game at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Ben Wallace was pouting like a baby because his team was getting drilled and nailed Ronnie with a hard playoff foul the possession before Ronnie returned the favor. Download the game on the internet and you will plainly see that. I'm not vindicating anything out of line that anybody did that night, but I'm sick of 90% of sports media saying that Artest's foul instigated the brawl. That is simply not true. Ben Wallace needs to be held accountable. In my opinion--other than the cup, chair and beer throwers, of course--Big Ben and his brother were the most dispicable human beings in the stadium that night. He basically was glad our players got suspended afterwards, and he refused to accept any accountability whatsoever. It has always seemed to me that he intended to get under Ronnie's skin in order to see ifhe could get him ejected and potentially suspended (he surely knew Ron's track record). I still don't think that guy feels any remorse for what he started. Rip Hamilton was also a big time instigator, just watch his situation with Stephen Jackson. Detroit has to take some accountability for this. I'm sick of Ronnie being villified. Was he wrong? Yes! Was he the only one? No! Were the Pacers the only team in the wrong? Hell no! The only people that I have heard talk about Wallace's foul are Scoop Jackson, Chad Ford and Marc Stein. What the hell happend to objectivity? Oh, I guess making Artest the bad guy sells. Annoying.
