Former NBA player Renaldo Balkman chokes teammate during game

Former New York Knicks first-round pick Renaldo Balkman was caught on video attempting to choke a Petron Blaze Boosters teammate during a Philippine Basketball Association game.

The incident begins with Balkman bumping an official while disputing a non-call. Balkman pushes and shoves teammates attempting to shield him from several officials, before he eventually grabs team captain Arwind Santos by the neck.

Balkman, who played for the Knicks and Nuggets from 2006-2012, apologized via Twitter.
