Daniel Orton Gets in a Nasty Fight in Chinese Basketball Game

NBA: Washington Wizards-Media Day

Have you wondered what Daniel Orton has been up to? Well if you guessed, “playing in China and getting involved in a brawl that ended up in the stands”, you would be correct. The fight in this video is odd and gets ugly…and it also includes quite the musical soundtrack to accompany it. Daniel is one of the great “what might have beens” in UK history and this melee probably won’t help him going forward.

    Seriously Matt, what is his problem? Has he just been a malcontent his entire life?

    Orton fights like he played at UK, weak.

    I gave him a pass for his behavior at UK because his mother died before his freshman year, but he is apparently a punk now. Maybe he gets locked up in a Chinese prison and they just keep him over there? There is hope.

      You are a sad individual. I am sorry I associate with a fanbase with people like you.

      You ASSUME you know anything about me from one post that you disagree with? Ummm… ok. I’m happy he left, because he is clearly a turd, then and now. Not all former UK basketball players are worthy of the undying love and adoration of fanboys like yourself. Michael Porter, Rex Chapman, Ed Davender and Derrick Miller/Millar are a few more that fit into that category. If you are so sorry to associate with this fanbase, then go cheer for someone else.

    Is Trez going to be his tag-team partner some day? 😉

    You people make me sick. You ASSUME you know this person’s character..calling him a “punk” and “malcontent”. HOW THE HECK DO YOU KNOW??
    The guy lives in China. He is the only African American on that floor. And everyone is screaming at him in Chinese!!! Give it a break.

    All you people are sooo selfish and berate a member of our own for what? Because he chased the money and left without completing some silly freshman level class.

    And the stupid link to the troll with the afro….come on man..

    Show some class Big Blue Nation.

      Agreed. We have some angry people that post out here. The guy kicked at him first. Has everyone forgotten Cousin’s forearm shiver to stropeshire? At least he’s not getting props as one of the 10 best point guards in college like one of our former players.

      Please go back and review the video. Swopshire kneed Cousins in the head; Cousins retalliated with a forearm.

      Never was a fan of Orton or Cousins but it does seem like Cousins is starting to get it and hope he continues the way he is going.
      This does not look like Ortons fault, the dude kicked him when they were on the ground and Orton went off. Now it was not the right way to handle it but he did not start it……..Refs could have called him for a foull when he first comes down the court and probably have prevented, or at least delayed, the situation.

      25or624. I remember the knee to the head so there is nothing to review. Swopeshire was scared shitless, the knee was accidental.

    “Malice at the Sichuan Provincial Stadium” doesn’t quite have the same ring.

    Speaking of which: Ron Artest also plays for this team, the Sichuan Blue Whales.

    Daniel Orton is garbage. He should have never come to UK.
