Former Chicago Bulls star Luc Longley has been praised for potentially saving the life of Boomer Chris Goulding during the vicious brawl between Australia and the Philippines last night.

Longley, who was the first Australian to play in the NBA back in 1991, rushed in to save the Boomers’ star shooter when he was shockingly set upon by the Filipino squad.

Goulding was laying helpless on the floor behind the basket when more than 12 Filipino players and assistant coaches began to mercilessly beat him, including one assistant coach resorting to using a chair to inflict brutal damage on the 29-year-old Aussie.

“Luc Longley might have just saved Chris Goulding’s life,” he tweeted.

“The assistant coach grabs a chair and pummels it down on his head while multiple cowards stomp on him.

“This is very hard to watch.”

Out of the entire ugly fracas, the Goulding incident, particularly with the view from the footage behind the basket, has caused angst from all involved as well as fans.

Moldovan has pledged to purspue legal action if FIBA does not issue an ‘adequate response’ to the brawl during the FIBA World Cup qualifier.

“What took place from those that flew off the bench out of sight and out of mind for those involved in the fracas, the team officials, managers, equipment guys, waterboys, whoever they were – going in in the fashion that they did, that’s where I take serious offence to what took place and that’s where I want to see FIBA come down with a very, very heavy hand,” he said.

“If FIBA’s response isn’t adequate, I’m going to pursue my own legal avenues to protect my clients.

“Serious measures would need to be put in place before I’m comfortable to send players to these environments again.

“Fines are inadequate. There would need to be serious sanctions against the federation.”
