Here's a good one: A linebacker and a power forward walk into a bar ... well, whatever happened in there eventually led to a fight outside.

Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar and former Sacramento Kings player Donte Greene were arrested for fighting each other outside of a Miami Beach nightclub early Sunday morning, according to the Associated Press. They could each be charged with battery and disorderly conduct, a police spokesperson told the AP. We're used to NFL and NBA players being pals, so what could these two have been arguing about? If LeBron James would have been better off picking a career as a tight end?

Whatever led to the altercation, it happened outside the Dream Nightclub in South Beach. Dunbar was getting in his last bit of fun before Rams training camp starts, and Greene was there too. The 6-11 Greene played four seasons with the Sacramento Kings, but hasn't appeared in the NBA since the end of the 2012 season. One would assume being arrested for a nightclub fight won't spark his comeback.

Dunbar is no stranger to driving the Rams nuts with his off-field trouble. He was suspended for four games to start the 2013 season for a violation of the league's PED policy. He came back to start 10 games for the Rams and is being counted on to start this season.

The good news for the Rams is there's no NBA team in St. Louis, therefore no NBA players in town during the season to agitate their linebacker.
