Veterans Jimmy Butler and Blake Griffin probably won’t be swapping Christmas cards this year, judging by what happened during Friday’s Sixers-Pistons game.
It’s unclear what started it all, but Griffin bumped into Butler at the end of a play. The Sixers veteran clearly wasn’t having it, so he got right in Griffin’s face, and exchanged some words with his counterpart. Griffin then got him back soon after, putting his elbow in Butler’s face as if to say “talk to the hand.”
To their credit, Butler and Griffin led their teams in scoring, with 38 and 31 points respectively, so they earned the right to beat their chests a bit.
