If you’re a hardcore basketball fan you likely remember the name Jeff Pendergraph. It’s a name you won’t be hearing again as Pendergraph legally changed his name this offseason to Jeff Ayres which coincided with his addition to the San Antonio Spurs after spending last season with the Miami Heat.

The Heat who’ve been in a war of words with the Brooklyn Nets this past week were hoping for a bit of quietness when they took on the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night though quietness is not what they received. Instead they’ve been accused of attempting to hurt players on the opposing side of the court as Ayres said he felt as if the Heat players were going for his knees potentially in retaliation for his ejection against the Heat last season in the playoffs.
