Marcin Gortat thinks that fighting should be allowed in the NBA, similar to how it's allowed in the NHL. As much as fans would clamor to see some players throw down, we all know fighting will never be allowed. But if it somehow is, here are 10 fights that fans would love to see.

Honorable Mention - Kobe Bryant vs. Raja Bell

Remember when Kobe got clotheslined back in the 2006 Playoffs? Yeah, that was Bell doing the clotheslining. I'm going to guess Bryant would like to get some revenge.

Dwyane Wade vs. Kevin Durant

These two had some social media beef before the start of the 2013-14 season. You can't tell me that fans wouldn't pay to see these two go at it.

Kevin Garnett vs. Tim Duncan

Word has it that Duncan hates Garnett (not a shocker). That would make a fight between the two even more intriguing.

Ray Allen vs. Paul Pierce w/ KG

These two have had beef ever since Allen left the Celtics before the 2012-13 season. Wouldn't it be great to see the former friends settle their differences the old fashioned way?

JR Smith vs. Matt Barnes - Loser Leaves Town

Both of these guys are dopes. I say the loser leaves the NBA for good.

Noah has made no bones about his dislike for the Heat. I'd pay money to see him throw down with the world's only living dinosaur.

Delonte West vs. LeBron James

This one would be personal. Why? Remember the rumors about West sleeping with James' mom? Yeah...

Dwight Howard vs. Kobe Bryant

We all know that Kobe doesn't like Dwight, so why not let them loose in the ring? Could the undersized Mamba take down the Giant?

Marcin Gortat vs. Reggie Evans

Gortat proposed the idea of fighting in the NBA, so he has to get matched up with someone. Why not resident NBA tough guy Reggie Evans?

Kendrick Perkins vs. Zach Randolph

These two apparently don't like each other. Anyone surprised? No? Alright, let 'em duke it out in the parking lot.

Remember when Hansborogh got all puffy because someone was on his back? Then he realized it was MWP. That was awesome. You know what else would be awesome? A fight between the two.
