3. Tree Rollins vs. Danny Ainge

Date: 4/24/1983
Teams: Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics
Round: Game 3, Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
Winner: Tree Rollins
In retaliation for being called a sissy, Tree Rollins elbowed Danny Ainge in the face. Never one to back down, Ainge tackled Rollins to the ground and the two began to wrestle. Tree then bit Ainge's middle finger requiring a couple stitches. The crazy part? Ainge was ejected and not Tree. The Celtics went on to win the series, 2-1. Yeah, you read that right, the top two teams in each conference had first round byes in those days.
