In their first unofficial court meeting last week as Nuggets teammates, the team's reigning macho forward and the All-Star prototype imported from New Jersey for $90 million exchanged hostilities in an ugly confrontation.

An extra on the scene informs me Nene and Kenyon Martin, on opposite sides, had been battling for turf and respect for some time - neither is a center, thus the starting four spot is up for grabs. Meaning, they weren't about to keep their hands to themselves. The usual infuriating pushin' and shovin' ensued each time either one tried to establish inside position. Suddenly Martin reverted to brutal form of a few years ago. He spun around on Nene, recounted the eyewitness, and punched the 6-11, 260-pound Brazilian, hitting him square above one eye, opening up a gash that necessitated stitches. Teammates prevented further bloodshed. Temporarily. Nene is far too bad to the bone to let Martin get away with a sucker punch.

At least one Peja Stojakovic confidant believes the Bulls or Pacers still have a decent chance to pry him away from the Kings. Miami, where Peja has a home, is his preference, but the Heat neither has the available assets nor comparable salaries to make it happen. "Don't count on Peja going anywhere," underlined a Sacramento hall monitor. "Management is much more intent on trading Chris Webber but can't seem to drum up any interest." C-Webb's ongoing knee problem and prohibitive contract might have something to do with it.

Martin is always gonna be a thug. That's all that seems to come out of the University of Cincinnati anyway.

And Peja ain't comin' here. Thankfully.

Thug or not I'll take Kenyan Martin any day of the week. If you like Artest you have to like KMart
