Two Lakers teammates tried to play-fight, and it ended with a slap

Get enough young-ish men in a competitive environment, and they're going to do some not-so-smart things.

Perhaps at the top of that list is play-fighting, which just never goes well. It starts with two friends pretending to go 'round and 'round, and it inevitably ends with someone taking an inadvertent shot to the face.

It's a lesson that Los Angeles Lakers guard Lou Williams learned the hard way on Wednesday, after he challenged big man Roy Hibbert to a friendly sparring session:

Fortunately, it looks like Hibbert barely got a hold of the side of Williams' face. Any stronger and there could have been a real issue.

Having one teammate accidentally knock out another? That would have been the perfect summation of this Lakers season.
