Besides first-quarter scores that actually matter, what's the variation in between the NFL and NBA?

Andrew Bynum might argue there's small distinction within the fashion of physical play, and JJ Barea might be prepared to agree ... if he could breathe long sufficient to spit out a complete sentence.

Bynum, the Los Angeles Lakers' middle, put an elbow towards the ribs with the Dallas Mavericks' Barea in Sunday's playoff game that gave Dallas a shocking four-game sweep while using the Western Conference semifinals series.

It was try out that acquired us pondering about how tame it really looked in comparison to some of the unnecessary roughness that happened on NFL fields final period:

A Titanic brawl

Feelings boiled more than for Texans WR Andre Johnson and Titans CB Cortland Finnegan in Week 12 at Reliant Stadium. Following exchanging shoves on the previous play, Johnson and Finnegan ripped each other's helmets off during a brawl that got each gamers ejected. Johnson acquired the very best of Finnegan, landing two haymakers.

Paying the cost

Each Steelers linebacker James Harrison and Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi compensated due to this hit in Week 6. Massaquoi was knocked from the game, and Harrison was later fined $75,000 for illegally hitting a defenseless receiver.

DeSean nearly decapitated

A monster collision in between Texans CB Dunta Robinson and Eagles WR DeSean Jacksonleft both players down for the count in Week 13. Robinson didn't lead together with his helmet but was penalized for hitting a defenseless receiver and later on fined $50,000.

Have a good trip

Maybe the most notorious "hit" with the 2010 season didn't even entail a player. Jets strength coach Sal Alosi drew the ire of many across the league -- he was eventually fined and suspended for that rest of the period -- after sticking his knee out to trip Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll on the punt.

Rookie mistake

Lions DT Ndamukong Suh created his presence felt all through his rookie period, including this hit on Bears QB Jay Cutler in Week thirteen. Whilst replays show Suh's hit was more of the one-handed push than just a forearm shiver, he was known as for needless roughness and later on fined $15,000 for the infraction.

From bounds

Tom Zbikowski has become a household name because of his boxing skills throughout the offseason. But he most likely would have already been docked a stage in the ring for this takedown ofPeyton Hillis. Sure, it is tame in contrast towards the others on this web page, but Hillis, knowing now the consequence administered by Zbikowski in the ring this offseason, is most likely counting his blessings.

No apologies

The discussion raged on -- and probably nonetheless does -- on whether or not Browns security T.J. Ward's vicious hit within the finish zone on Bengals WRJordan Shipley was illegal. Was it helmet-to-helmet get in touch with? Or did Ward hit him with the shoulder, as he claimed? Doesn't issue, truly, because the NFL nonetheless believed it had been right in fining Ward $15,000 for that hit, which drew a flag from the refs.

Heap of trouble

A sizable Week six matchup between the brand new England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens was bound to possess some big hits, and none was larger -- or more questionable -- compared to 1 Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweatherdelivered to Ravens tight finish Todd Heap. The head-to-head get in touch with drew a $50,000 fine in opposition to Meriweather, who, following the game said he would not alter his fashion of play. (View)
