Year: 2001
Game: Spurs @ Knicks

On January 15, 2001, the Spurs' Danny Ferry damn near took out the eye of Marcus Camby. While Camby was getting attended to, he suddenly decided to go over to the San Antonio bench to retaliate. But in true Jeff Van Gundy fashion, the then-Knicks coach stepped in and took the hit himself. Van Gundy needed 15 stitches in his head for the blow. Talk about literally taking one for the team.
