This could well be one of the best NBA fights in the history of the National Basketball association. It won’t be the best because players are running up in the stands fighting other fans and stuff like that! It’s the best NBA fight because it was between two of the greatest legends to ever play this game. The Larry Bird versus Julius “Dr. J” Erving brawl is epic!

Long time referee Dick Bavetta who was an NBA referee for over four decades has seen the majority of fights in person, only recalls one that sticks out in his mind. it was over thirty years ago when the top NBA fight occurred on Nov. 9th, 1984. The game was played between two of the top Eastern conference teams, The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers. These teams despised each other way back in the day and even though it was early in the season you still could feel the chippiness in the air. The Celtics eventually one the game 130-119, with Bird dominating with 42 points in just 30 minutes of playing time before getting ejected. This is what sports is all about, go hard or go home!
