Kung-Fu Fighting: Shawne Williams vs. Bill Walker

During yesterday's scrimmage in San Francisco, Shawne Williams got a little peeved with Bill Walker's physical play and decided to do something about it. Alan Hahn reports:

So when Bill Walker caught him with a hard foul early in a post-practice scrimmage here at The Olympic Club on Thursday, Williams got up and went right after Walker, furious with the overzealous foul.

The players had to be separated and Williams had to be restrained by two teammates, including Eddy Curry, as he clearly wanted a piece of Walker, who glared back. It took a few minutes for his emotions to cool and when the game resumed, Walker went right next to Williams to guard him again. But the remainder of the game went without incident.

I present this more as a piece of behind-the-scenes arcana than as an item worthy of concern. That is, as long as a moment like this can be channeled into determined team play. You got anger, Shawne Williams? That's good. You're gonna need it. You got aggression, Bill Walker? That's even better. You're gonna need that, too. But any little two year-old child can throw a fit. Basketball is about controlling that anger, harnessing that aggression into a team effort to achieve PERFECTION!

Let's go to work.

Update: I bet both of these guys were just feeling feisty because they got smoked in Halo by Wilson Chandler.
