Confrontation between Charlie Villanueva and Ryan Hollins ends in double ejection, before Villanueva attempts to charge Cavaliers' bench, then break into locker room to continue altercation.
Posted by Matt Moore

Update: Villanueva after the game on why he went "bonkers": "You've got to be careful with the quiet ones, right?" The word you're looking for is "Yikes." 

Charlie Villanueva lost it on Monday night versus the Cavaliers after a confrontation with center Ryan Hollins. Hollins and Villanueva became entangled in your protypical tussle during a screen, resulting in Hollins shoving Villanueva in the face, and Hollins swinging at Hollins. The two were separated by teammates, and that's when things got weird. 

It was announced that Villanueva was ejected, and at that point, Charlie V. went nuts. He started to charge the Cavaliers' bench to get at Hollins, and had to be held back and pushed towards the back by an assistant coach, and Rodney Stuckey, who was hanging off the power forward trying to avoid a scary incident. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer cites a Pistons reporter who says Villanueva was saying he was "going to kill that dude (Hollins)." On his way out, Villanueva motioned for Hollins to meet him in the back.  The weirdness doesn't end there. 

Once back in the locker room area, Villanueva had to be restrained trying to get into the Cavaliers' locker room, presumably to get to Hollins, who was also ejected. 

If I may, that story is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S. 

During the ejections, the Pistons P.A. announcer took the time to remind the fans not to throw anything and to stay in their seats. Gee, I wonder why

Considering the fact that Villanueva didn't react this way when Kevin Garnett may or may not have called him a cancer patient, you have to wonder what Hollins said to Charlie V. 

Here's footage of the incident:

BTW, poor job by the article writer to explain or at least make a reasonable guess as to what really made Villanueve so violent toward Hollins. I went to another sports site and noticed in an up-close picture of the fight that Hollins had his clinched fingers over and inside Valllaneva's mouth. Then there is a very good chance that Hollins scratched the inside of Vs mouth, which hurts like a bugger. Some posters on here obviously don't understand fighting and how sneaky and slimy NBA players can be with the undercover fouls. People who don't understand fighting and how slimy NBA thugs can really be and how most NBA players and absolutely unarguably some of the worst kind of lowlifes around are the ones who scream on the top of their lungs that guys who react (to this type of torture, which occurs of a regular basis,) should be kicked out and fined a lot of money and blah blah blah blah blah.  Those of you who are like this, and you know who you are, because you are constantly hiding behind real mean to defend your wet noodle of a carcass, should have to stick it out in a similar situation before you make any more comments or even have any more thoughts in your head about why a man would want to rip someone's face off for being a slimy bag of sewage all the live long day. Stop being a bunch of little girl robots and read between the lines for once. If any of this is not immediately obvious to you, you really have no clue as to how a real man should react when he defends himself. Have fun sheep. Haha. You are so scared of everything. That's funny 

SHEEP rhymes with SLEEP

Yes this dude is off by a lot, and fighting of course needs to be dealt with to keep things civil, but some of you posters sound like you are afraid of even the idea of a physical confrontation. You want to hang these guys of something that is going to happen in a high-stakes competitive sport between alpha males. Such wusses some of you are. Can't handle seeing a fight. Oooweeeweee scary scary men help me NBA so I don't get scared at what's on tv.

It was the incessant grin that set him off. I don't blame him. That grinning made me too want to beat Hollins severely.

LOL. It is 10:36AM (almost half a day has passed) and they still have not made a correction to the "Hollins swinging at Hollins" part..

What a nutjob Villanueva is.  Watch the video from the onset and you will see the initial punch he throws to Hollins' groin.  I sure hope the NBA suspends him for a couple of games and into next season.  He was absolutely out of control.

I'm not a fan of either teams or either players, but its obvious Hollins said something to piss him off. Hollins is a dirty player no doubt, but this Villanueva dude needs to chill out. Both guys should get suspended for the season. Charlie needs anger management and Hollins needs mental help and to be reminded his team is in last place so stop trying to be the next Dennis Rodman.

If you're not man enough to absorb a little contact then don't set a pick.

I say put them both in a fight(without a gun) and let them go. I don think either one will be smiling. Then kick their dumbazzes out of the league! I would love to watch these punks throw a punch at each other.
