Mavericks forward James Johnson holds mythical status within the NBA for his black belt in karate, 20-0 kickboxing record and extensive MMA experience.
Late in the Hornets’ rout of the Mavericks yesterday, Johnson cleared out Cody with an unnecessarily strong shoulder/push. When Cody confronted him, Johnson headbutted the Charlotte forward. Then, Caleb – Cody’s twin brother and teammate – got into the mix.
Johnson and Cody got ejected. Caleb received a technical foul.
