Watch the video of that little Troy Murphy vs. Tyrus Thomas fracas last night.
Thomas takes his swing and then O'Neal enacts the role of the greatest bouncer ever. Just stops the fight in about two tenths of a second. That's man time. Didn't get hot. Didn't jump in. Just acted the adult all the way. And the physical accomplishment alone was non-trivial -- moving a motivated combatant the size of Thomas as if he were a child.
