Mo Bamba shares hilarious story after fight with Austin Rivers


Orlando Magic star Mo Bamba has shared a hilarious story after his recent fight with Austin Rivers of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Orlando Magic travelled to the Target Center in Minneapolis to face the Minnesota Timberwolves in their recent NBA outing on Friday night. While it was the visitors that came out on top in a 127-120 win courtesy of a strong display from Cole Anthony who racked up 20 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists – the headlines were dominated by an on court altercation.

All hell broke loose at the Target Center as the Magic’s Mo Bamba and the Timberwolves’ Austin Rivers were among five players to be ejected in the third quarter of Friday’s game at Target Center following an on-court altercation. The Magic’s Taurean Prince and Jaden McDaniels and Orlando’s Jalen Suggs were also ejected for their involvement in the brawl.

While it is unclear what exactly started the brawl, tempers escalated while Rivers was near the Magic bench. Bamba, who was on the bench, appeared to get up from his seat and take a swing at Rivers before the two exchanged more punches and others got involved. While the NBA will hand out fines or suspensions to everyone involved, Bamba’s story on Instagram made headlines.

Right after the game, Bamba took to his Instagram to post a story of a meme that went viral in no time. In the meme, a professor is referring to a graph plotting “F**k around” and “Find out” – a referral to the phrase “F**k around, find out” – serving as an ultimatum to Rivers.

Bamba is having a respectable season for the Magic, averaging 7.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 39 appearances mostly off the bench while Rivers, who also plays primarily off the bench for Minnesota, is averaging 5.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 42 appearances.
