Man, they really take second-rate basketball seriously overseas.

A fairly entertaining match-up between Union Olimpija and Panathinaikos was interrupted by a vicious boot to the head by former ASU Sun Devil Mike Batiste.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

With things being tense on the court and the score stuck at 57-55 in the fourth quarter, Batiste tangled with Saso Ozbolt while trying to pull down a key rebound. As Ozbolt flopped to the ground, Batiste decided to give him a legitimate injury to worry about by stomping his foot on the back of the fallen player’s head.

Prior to this, Batiste’s biggest and most noteworthy accomplishment was leading the PAC-10 in blocked shots as a member of the Sun Devils during the 1997-98 season.
