Honestly? They should probably ban everyone from having courtside seats. 

 

I’m good with that too. No one needs to be that close.

There are two things I remember from my legal environment of business class 1. The difference between assault and battery and 2. Contracts aren’t nearly as comically ironclad as portrayed in movies. 

 

Nothing like a nice morality clause to get you out of a contract for practically any reason!

Dude shouldn't have touched Lowry, no doubt. But DAMN is some of the reaction over the top. Toss him, ban him from the remainder of the series, and let this die down in a week like it inevitably will. 

 

Charge him with battery? Ban him for life? Pump the brakes, y'all. 

 

I like the people who want him to be banned for life and forced to sell his share of the team. Making him get cash for a fast-appreciating asset? g-g-g-g-got him

Look at the likes on his posts compared to yours. That’s the board’s de-facto downvote option, likes on posts calling out posts.

 

Not into the junior high clique thing but thanks anyway. 😉

Maybe others are right. You do need a break from the NBA & sports in general. The Warriors really seem get under your skin. Sports are meant to be entertaining. If you can't let things just roll off your back then I don't know what to do for you. Pleasant day sir. 

 

 

 

One other guy said that, and that other guy is a known superfan (for now) who just last night announced his commitment to trolling. I think I'm doing okay.

 

I also think accusing people of hysteria because they have opinions you don't want to read is poor message board ettiquette. If you read any of my posts about the Warriors, you'll see that I frequently give credit to that organization for all of the several things it does right, while also being annoyed by their ongoing success (at the expense of my favorite player) and the behavior of their fans.

 

This has always been the deal in sports -- if your team is really really good (like the Warriors or the Patriots), you're going to have people that are jealous/angry/annoyed/bored by your success.

 

I never tell people they can't like the team. I never say the Warriors should be disbanded. I only post my observations on the games and the general news and notes about the NBA. That's it.

 

Also, that Warriors dude should be shoved by Kyle Lowry while he's doing his work at destroying our economy and norms of shared society. See how he likes it.

The dude has been banned for a year and fined by the NBA. 

 

I honestly feel like that’s the appropriate response. You have to have a hardline on stuff like this; so credit the NBA for handling this swiftly and properly.

After listening to Simmons talk about Stren vs. Silver on his podcast with Klosterman on Tuesday, how would have David Stern handled this?

David Stern let Donald Sterling be Donald Sterling for decades. He wouldn't have done anything at all. Probably would have fined Lowry for getting in the way of the owner's hand.

If he wasn’t an investor the league would have made a big indulgent show of banning him for life, so hmmm.

If he wasn't an investor, would he have been outed so quickly?

Man, am I late to this "fan pushing player" stuff. I've been hearing about it all day on the radio and such, and just got a chance to see the video.  I gotta say, after all the wailing ancd moaning, I expected something much worse... is that really it? I mean, sure, he shouldn't have done it, and needed to be escorted out but I think I've been "shoved" harder in the ATM line.  Calm down.

My thoughts exactly. The guy is no doubt a douchebag but people act like he murdered a herd of elephants in cold blood.

I’m sorry, but no one is acting like that. C’mon man lol. 

 

Obviously the shove itself was as weak as I’ve ever seen, but it’s more about the principle itself. 

 

No other league in NA allows fans to be so close to players. They have to be strict about it.

You've never had a field pass for the NFL or NCAA football or been to an indoor football game regardless of league name.

What do you mean? Maybe not to the public, but there have been situations even this year where the league/teams have said “we caught the fan in question and they’re banned now”.

Like the Russell Westbrook incident this year. A fan yelled at him “get back to your seat where you belong” from several rows back. Dudes now banned for life. I’d say that’s much less than what the part owner did.

Probably, everyone gets off on tattling now.
