In the NBA, most “fights” involve guys trying to act tough while waiting for their teammates to jump in and separate them before they actually have to do anything. It’s a lot of posing. The NBA’s fines have had the desired effect.

Not so much in Spain. This is from the Laboral Kutxa vs. Bilbao Basket basket game. Which was a blowout, by the way, it was a 16-point game with 10 seconds left when a Bilbao player went for the bucket, the hard foul came, then things escalated quickly. This is a fight with actual punches thrown.

Followed by the classy move of one player to apologize to a child in the audience

Hat tip The Big lead.
