Arguably one of the most shocking moments in sports history, and perhaps the most famous LIVE footage of any sporting event in the 21st century, former NBA Champion and then Pacers starter Stephen Jackson opened up on The Rich Eisen Show about what actually triggered what we now refer to as the ‘Malice at the Palace’.

Jackson described little-known details about that night, including what then-Pacers point guard Jamaal Tinsley said to Ron Artest at the free throw line seconds before the hard foul on Ben Wallace triggered the melee, and the outrageous things Artest was saying in the locker room after the brawl with Detroit fans had mercifully ended.
