Josh Jackson Involved In “Malice At The Palace” At Eight-Years Old

One of the most infamous brawls in sports history happened 15 years ago to date, and NBA G-league player, Josh Jackson, was in attendance.

As many other eight-year old children, their memories are very vague. However, the “Malice At The Palace” brawl is hard to forget.

Jackson was only eight at the time of the event, but still felt the need to get involved as he was a Detroit Pistons fan.
