Just surfing the web and gathering what I can, it seems like Smart was referred to by the white guy as the n word and told to go back to Africa or something along those lines. I can understand the anger when such a classless and disrespectful comment comes from an older white "adult" and don't blame the kid one bit. Should he shove a fan when representing his school? Of course not, but in a heated game like that the old man had it coming to him if the rumors are true.

Probably some truth to that.

Just once, I wish that someone would call me cracker and tell me to go back to England. It would be awesome. Pretty funny too.

On a serious note- even if something racist was said the kid still needs to walk away. It could have turned very ugly.

Apparently the "fan" has a history of being a douchebag. Still doesn't make what Smart did smart though. I wonder if the fan loses his seat over this.

If you don't blame him one bit, that is part of the problem. He doesn't need to be in this venue if he can't take it. Should it happen? No, but it does and if you can't deal with it on the court this will just continue. Now that fans know it bugs him, it will be twice as bad.

The correct thing to do is to get a security guard and point the guy out then have him removed.

Not sure what to say about a 50 year old yelling at a 20 year old that just fell into the crowd. The Fan should know better IMO. A close game against a rival does not excuse sportsmanship!

I can see it now.

Player: "Timeout, ref! Timeout!"

*Whistle Blows*

Coach: "Why are you calling a timeout?!"

*Player searches for a cop or security guard*

Player: "Officer, that guy over there called me the n-word."

Probably not. He is likely a big donor. They might issue some kind of minor reprimand.

The kid obviously has a temper and should suspended for 3 games minimum and have to attend anger management classes. There is no excuse for what he did.

see this is an issue. Smart was wrong and I think he deserves a 5 game suspension because of this and his incident 2 weeks ago. However Texas Tech needs to ban this "fan", donor or not. He is a disgrace to their university

Default Re: Marcus Smart....What a Punk!

I dont care what the fan said. It doesn't matter one bit what he said. A player CAN NOT go into the crowd and start shoving, punching, whatever fans. I dont care if the guy said the worst thing in the world, it doesnt matter. They are words. As for the n-word, blacks have made the word more and more acceptable in today's society. It's a horrible word, but if it was so horrible then blacks wouldnt say it all the time to each other as casually as they do. If they truly took offense to it they would stop saying it and it would become much more of a taboo word. It still makes no difference if he said the n-word or something different, Smart was completely wrong

It depends on what he said. Hecklers are a part of the game. You'd probably have to suspend half our student section at our games by the same logic and that is about 1/3 of our fans at games now a days.

Default Re: Marcus Smart....What a Punk!

I find it funny how quickly the excuse of he was in the heat off he moment or it's the fans fault came out in this thread. People need to be held accountable for their actions; stop making excuses for them. I don't know what the fan said, so can't attack him, but I know what the player did and he was an embarrassment to his team, school and family.

I disagree with the idea that the fan said something racist so it's ok to react that way. Does anyone remember Jackie Robinson and what he went through? Nothing compares to that and by responding to these attacks only encourages fans to say even worse things.

Default Re: Marcus Smart....What a Punk!

Let me clarify my stance. He deserves at least 5 a game suspension. I would be OK with him being bounced for the season. He had no business going into the stands. You have to be above the hecklers and keep it on the court.

My stance on the fan is completely seperate situation. The fan can say what he wants but when you allow a fan to be court side and he is yelling profanities and racial statements it reflects poorly on your institution. He has a documented history of being over the edge and needs to be put in his place.

Default Re: Marcus Smart....What a Punk!

The tune would change quickly have you probably come from the background Smart likely came from and it wouldn't be such a heated topic if he wasn't playing the game at that time.

It was also a flagrant foul, the dude was one row back from him. It wasn't like he ran into the stands on purpose cause of the term.

Athletes are people as well and you can say certain things to any certain individual and they likely will take action of some kind.
