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

I think we all agree that Smart should not have pushed a fan, however...

The problem with some fans is they have a total sense of entitlement when it comes to what they feel is inbounds at a sporting event. That old guy has likely been an asshole his entire sporting life and probably should have been shoved years ago. (I know this is an assumption, but something triggered Smart and my guess is the old man wasn't complimenting his style of play.)

IMO, no one should get a pass on their behavior just bc they are attending a sporting event. Especially when you are talking about amature athletes.

Let's just say, I'm not surprised this happened in Lubbock. Texas Tech is a cesspool

That kid's a thug. OK State needs to kick him off the team so he can come to South Carolina and let Frank straighten him out!

Didn't a fight at a Ware Shoals High School game last week start with about the same thing? Somebody used the n word and then there was a fight, then fans waited by the other teams bus after the game?

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

Even if a racial slur was used (and I have no doubt that it was personal or a racial slur), do you honestly think it's the first time that's ever happened? However, it does seem to be the first time a college player has gone up in the stands like that. No matter what was said, Marcus needs to be punished. You just don't do that.

If this fan does indeed have a history of this type of stuff (which I also honestly believe because of the "I got ya" smirk on his face after Marcus pushed him), then Texas Tech has every right to tell him he'll never step foot in that arena again.

Bottom line is both schools need to found out what happened and make it clear that it's not to be tolerated.

That's another reason after thinking about it, that I believe they were baiting him. Still doesn't make him pushing the guy acceptable.

When I say he got in the ref's face, I'm not referring to the one that called the Technical, I'm referring to another ref after he'd gone to OSU's bench. That ref could have easily T'ed him up again, getting him ejected. For everyone's safety, that wouldn't have been a bad thing.

Yeah, looks like the same guy. All I saw in that video was a flip-off, which although childish, is totally harmless. Him sticking out his tongue was in response to the A&M player doing the same exact thing.

Of course he was. He was calling him the "N word" and telling him to go back to Africa presumably around other black people in the crowd while pulling for his team that has black people on it.

Smart obviously went too far, but TT should discipline the fan as well. Buying a ticket doesn't give you permission to be an asshole.

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

Marcus smart made a poor choice and reacted like a kid, but calling him a punk is uncalled for. When you tell a young black man to "go back to Africa" when he is already emotional in a losing game, you are asking to get shoved, or knocked out. Smart should apologize to his team, but should not be cast down as some kind of thug, as he did what most young men would do when insulted in such a way. He should've just pointed at the guy and made known what was said after the game.

Is "srs" some strange abbreviation for serious?

If so, yes, I'm asking is there video of the fan saying whatever he said to the basketball player before he got up and pushed him.
