Not good for Bobby. Mediocre players rarely survive things like this.

I keep hearing cheap shot and sucker punch thrown on Twitter, et.al. but no specifics on what that means.  I'm sure for some of these east coast sports writer any time a shoving contest turns into a punch that qualifies as a cheap shot.  I would like think that Mitotic kept coming at him and Bobby finally had enough.  I really hope it wasn't a punch from behind or anything like that.

Seriously if the guy charged at BP multiple times and BP threw one punch and knocked the guy out why should he be suspended?

If he had say instead, swept the leg, and the guy was neutralized without any serious injury would they suspend him?

So it's BPs fault he throws a nice haymaker and European guy has a glass jaw.

I'm seeing a lot of positive reactions to this.  Or at least bemusement at this adding to his general reputation of being slightly crazy.  Crazy Eyes is now the One Punch Man.

I think they should suspended Mirotic, too. At least a few games. He had a pretty role in this and he charged at Bobby.

I like what I read from this one.

Yes, me too.

"While Portis will still likely face some discipline, he will probably keep his roster spot. Vecsey also reported that Portis was well-liked, working hard and had asserted himself as a leader in the off-season. Now the Bulls have to figure out what to do with Mirotic. He's out for the foreseeable future, but he might have some trade value."

I thought Joe Kline was going to come unglued on The Buzz - after some listener sent in a message that Portis should be charged with assault and battery. Kline said it happens ALL the time in the Pros especially this time of year after guys have been going at each other hard in practice for weeks.
Kline's attitude was - you hate to see someone get hurt, but this type altercation wasn't unusual.
Also too bad that Portis will likely face punishment for being the better fighter.

I'm glad Portis wasn't the aggressor.  But he shouldn't have thrown the punch either.  These teams have too much money invested to have the players hospitalizing one another.

If Portis had allowed himself to be shoved and pushed around with no response  / he would have lost the respect of his teammates. Probably been viewed as weak. A sports team isn't a place where turning the other cheek works very well.

Who's this Kline fellow you speak off? IF you're going to be on a Razorback board at least get the name spelled right.

It has been stated they were talking smack, Bobby P was not the aggressor. He was defending himself, thugging it up is not his style.

Bingo.  Portis good Miratic dumb

Well, read some comments from his Bull's teammates.  They will confirm that no matter how heated the pushing and shoving had become he shouldn't have thrown the punch.  No offense, but you have a completely backward view of how sports teammates should behave and how teams should operate.

Idk, I've seen plenty of fights between teammates in the heat of the battle. Punches were thrown but no one was knocked out. Normally both players were sent home for the day. That stuff is gonna happen, but either Mirotic has a soft jaw, Portis got him really good, or Mirotic got caught with his hands down and it may have come off like a bit of a sucker punch.

Yes - I'm sure everyone is upset that Mirotic got hurt (after the fact).
I'm certain that wasn't Portis' intention but sometimes unintentional things happen when fights break out.

It's bs to claim this stuff doesn't ever happen when it does all the time. His team mates said both guys were at fault.

Portis not being suspended for fighting. He is being suspended for the damage one punch caused.

The problem is it gives the rookie drafted at the same position 8 games to show what he can do while BP sits ... might make him dispensible

http://hoopshype.com/team/chicago-bulls/

Peter Vecsey: Contrary to counterfeit reports by ESPN and Yahoo, Bobby Portis did not “cheap shot” Nikola Mirotic at Bulls’ practice this afternoon, a source attests. Nonetheless, there is no denying it was a damaging one-punch knockdown. The Montenegro forward was taken to the hospital with a concussion and facial fractures that will require surgery, and is out indefinitely. Mirotic initiated the skirmish. “He was the aggressor, not Portis,” I am informed. “Mirotic shoved Portis twice, maybe three times. When Portis retaliated with a hard shove, Mirotic charged him. Portis put him down.” 12 hours ago – via Patreon

Josh Lewenberg‏: Dwane Casey on player fights when he was an assistant in Seattle… So, Gary Payton and…? “We had some doozies in Seattle, I’ll tell you what, some fisticuffs. One that started on the court and went in the weight room and went outside, come back in. It was a long one. I’ve seen those. The good thing about that, the people that were involved in that were able to come back together and bond back together, which is the hard part. You can’t let what happened yesterday come into tomorrow or next week or next month or hold it inside. That’s the trick and luckily in Seattle we had some of those but guys were able to get back together and maintain the team chemistry.” 4 hours ago – via Twitter

I agree this wouldn't even make the news if the injury wasn't that bad.

While it may not be a best practice to file a grievance against your team, I think BP should take advantage of any recourse he might have through the CBA.  They are basically docking him 10% pay because he knows how to fight and put Mirotic in his place. 

Mirotic is the jack ass that kept going at Portis.  BP finally said enough was enough and ended it.  Seems there was enough time for coaches and/or teammates to step in and pull them back, but they let them keep going at it and BP dropped the bum.

It's not right to put BP behind the 8 ball for this in a contract year.

If there is a plus side BP probably gained a lot of respect from his teammates and Mirotic comes off looking like a PAB that got dropped.

Relieved to hear that the story is not as bad as it initially sounded, still very negative overall, but looks like his career is moving forwards.

Yeah, it's unfortunate Mirotic got really hurt in the altercation, but maybe don't come after someone who can knock you out of playing for 1-2 months with a single punch

I remember hearing Steve Kerr talking about getting punched in the face by Michael Jordan in practice. Luckily for Steve, he doesn't hit as hard as Bobby though
