Pacers and Hawks should've brought "Almost Famous" kid with them to NYC to stay out of trouble

"[NBA players] Wake up!  Don't go to New York [nightclubs at 4 am the night before a game]!"

The Indiana Pacers play the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden tonight.  The Atlanta Hawks are also visiting the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center.  Around 4 am last night/early this morning, the Pacers' Chris Copeland was stabbed, then the Hawks' Pero Antic and Thabo Sefolosha were arrested for "obstructing the crime scene" outside a nightclub in Chelsea.

The details are still foggy (Copeland is OK), but my first though is how ridiculous it is that players from multiple visiting teams happened to be outside the same NYC club at 4 am the night before their respective games.

This scene from Almost Famous comes to mind:
