Wizards preseason 2012: Deron Williams, A.J. Price have beef, for some reason

Nothing like a brief dispute to liven up an NBA preseason game.

The Washington Wizards played the Brooklyn Nets Monday night at Jay-Z's House of Rocawear and Armadale Presented by Barclays (we think that's the building's official name, anyway). It was a typical NBA preseason game. Martell Webster and Brook Lopez led all scorers with 18 points, Jan Vesely didn't score a point in 27 minutes, you know the deal.

And then A.J. Price decided to say something to Deron Williams. And then the two got into a shoving match. And then Williams decided to talk about it to the media.

Here's Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

Price, for the record, is a born Jersey guy (Orange) and went to high school in Amityville, Long Island, so it's entirely likely that he did have family and friends in the building.

And still more from Williams.

For the record, these teams meet for the first time this season January 4 at Verizon Center. We just wish Williams could have asked A.J. if he knew where he could get a great deal on laptops.
