The Ambassadors of Basketball

On Thursday, the Georgetown University men’s basketball team, which is currently on a good will tour in China, forgot about the good will part and engaged in a bench-clearing brawl with the Bayi Rockets.

What I find interesting about the brawl is the way in which the Chinese players stand at the bench before a slight melee occurs and then run, almost in formation, to attack Georgetown. While I am not the blog's resident conspiracy theorist, the high level of coordination to fight and not restrain seems unfortunate to say the least.
