If the fan called Smart the N word, then his ass should be banned from TT events for a considerable time... Smart has had some issues, but I he was called that, I really can't fault him for pushing the guy.

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

White racists aren't usually big time basketball fans with 1st row seats. I am skeptical of this accusation. The situation of the game with 6 seconds left lends one to believe he was talking smack about his team being about to lose and his failure to stop that shot from going in. It's more likely Smart is playing the race card to make some excuse for him losing his temper.

I think Smart is the racist. This is a hate crime against white people. I bet he called that guy a honkey.

Well you can mock if you wish, but doing what he did will result in a suspension and loss of millions of dollars over his lifetime in loss of draft position.

Security guards are at the floor level by the way, to prevent guys from going on the floor.

Still funny?

The halftime of the Clemson vs 'Cuse, two commentators were talking about it(One being darrin horn) and they said that as of today, TT interviewed fans around him, and photographers and such and none of them said they could hear a racial slur being said.

By far my favorite part. He wailed the guy with his own shoe until someone else knocked the shoe out of his hand.

It wasn't knocked out of his hand. He chucked it onto the ice so the guy had to go home with one shoe on.

He called him a "piece of crap." If that justifies a fan getting pushed, then a lot of fans at Williams-Brice and Carolina Stadium deserved to be pushed. Hell, I bet half of this board called Darrin Horn worse at some point.

Sticks and stones, my friends. Words are only words. I don't think being offended is a reason to become violent. Since when did hearing a racial slur, even one being directed toward oneself, become a green light for attacking the person who spoke it?

Look at it again. At about the 2:10 mark, #21 is wailing the guy with a shoe, a fan reaches over from the left and gets the shoe out of his hand. It drops right there, and number 21 doesn't react at all. Kind of like, "Yeah, that's a little much."

you guys are so beautiful. I've been out of town and I knew that this thread would exist and just be wonderful. Thank you all for being you

EDIT:

HIS STATEMENT, WHAT A THUG

Quote:
"I want to apologize to the fan, whose name is Jeff Orr. I want to apologize to him. I want to apologize to my teammates, to my coaching staff, Coach Ford, my family, Oklahoma State University. This is not how I (conduct) myself, this is not how this program is ran. This is not how I was raised. I let my emotions get the best of me.
"Just can't let that happened again. This is a lesson I'll have to learn from. The consequences that are coming with it, I'm taking full responsibility. No finger pointing. This is all upon me.
"I just want to really apologize to those that are very important to me. I feel like I let my teammates down. These guys mean a lot to me. Not to be able to be out there with them, it hits me in my heart. I have a lot of people that look up to me, a lot of little kids, so once again, I truly apologize. This is not me. I really do apologize for it. Like I said, I take full responsibility and the consequences that come with it."

What do you mean "you all"? There are a variety of different opinions expressed in this thread. A few prejudged the kid a thug, a few prejudged the fan a bigot, and the rest were somewhere in between.

If you're so much better than the rest us, then you should have stayed away.

The guy is human, give him a break. He shoved an old man with a big mouth, get over it. Probably deserved it. People get what people deserve and if Smart deserves a 5 game suspension then so be it. The old guy deserved what he got, shouldn't have been talking sh*t.

He should've just pointed at the guy and made known what was said after the game.


So much for turning the other cheek.....If the fan truly used a racial epithet, he should lose whatever privileges he is entitled to as donor/fan/alumni. If the aim is to turn young black men, in to upstanding citizens, if not professional athletes, then Marcus Smart, regardless of the heat of the moment, casts serious doubt on the mission statement of student-athlete athletics at OSU.

Two wrongs (fans language/players reaction) don't make a right. If the aim is to teach life lessons to these guys, that is a life lesson applicable to all of us.
