Earlier this year, former NBA stars Gary Payton, and Gilbert Arenas sat down with DJ Vlad to reveal some details regarding shocking lockerroom stories about violence amongst teammates. Gary Payton shared that he once threatened to kill Ricky Pierce, while the latter went into even further detail about his infamous "gun incident" with Javaris Crittenton. Arenas recently sat down with former NBA champion Vernon Maxwell, as the interviewer during the taping of No Chill with Gilbert Arenas, to dive deep into his past. This prompted Maxwell to make a rather shocking statement about his ex-teammate with the Houston Rockets, Hakeem Olajuwon, a man who is largely known to the public for his niceness and calm demeanor.
"Before he [became a] Muslim, that motherf*cker was tough to deal with," Maxwell said. "He'll slap the sh*t out of you and all that."
The former shooting guard then shares a story about an incident that took place during halftime of an away game at Seattle. He stated that while the team was walking back to the locker room, he voiced his complaints to Hakeem about not sharing the ball enough. This prompted the seven-footer to take action rather aggressively.
"That motherf*cker slapped the sh*t out of me!" Maxwell recalled as the co-hosts howled in laughter. "And you know them Africans got them hard ass hands...He knocked me out the chair...I jumped up, grabbed my chair and threw it at that motherf*cker and busted the glass all in the damn lockerroom. The police came in with their guns drawn and said, 'What the hell is going on here? Max please put the [big piece of glass] down.' Oh lawd, I was like damn they got they guns on me at a professional halftime [of] a professional game...I broke the glass and picked up a big piece of glass, I was going to chase [Hakeem] and stab the sh*t out of him, but everybody ran out the damn lockerroom so I couldn't get to no body."
