    Default Marcus Smart Shoves Texas Tech Fan

    Wow... I can't believe he shoved that fan in the stands and that he wasn't ejected for it? A few minutes later when the Texas Tech fans rushed the floor Smart was still really upset. I was worried that if he came in contact with Texas Tech fans this could have gotten really bad.

    damn davis should have run after him and shoved him for giving him the up yours symbol... kidding

    Smart was stupid, why? Because it doesn't matter what 1 hill billy to 100 hill billies say, you don't throw away what you've worked so hard for over something stupid like this.

    And while I agree with you, in the heat of the moment (close game) people's emotions are running high. I'm not excising his actions but I can see where he is coming from. I thought we were all above playing the race card on someone but telling them to "go back to Africa you N" (which is he apparently said) is over the top.

    Agree with your post, to a point.

    Smart was not very Smart for sure, and there are a tone of as%h*L* fans for sure.... of all back grounds. Don't label them all "Hill Billies", it makes us good hill billies feel bad:-)

    It's all speculation at this point http://deadspin.com/go-back-to-afric...art-1519336610

    Very simple, Do not engage with the fans. Not worth it.

    Oregon players and coaches could have gone into the stands to fight an ASU fan, but they didn't.

    Jeff Orr Statement
    "I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere apologies to Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State, Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Men's Basketball program. My actions last night were inappropriate and do not reflect myself or Texas Tech - a university I love dearly. I regret calling Mr. Smart a "piece of crap" but I want to make it known that I did not use a racial slur of any kind. Additionally, I would like to offer my apologies to Texas Tech fans that have been embarrassed by the attention this incident has created."

    How much has this kid hurt his draft st0ck by coming back this year? His attitude alone has probably cost him a few spots at least

    Depends how desperate a GM is, his apology was good, but somethings you just can't change. Still a first round for sure, not sure if this makes him fall out of the top 10, depends what happens down the stretch.

    I can't imagine Marcus Smart not being drafted top 10 - outside of him maybe knocking out a fan while at the same time spitting on another.

    Yea I'd like to think AG gains a spot after this but in reality it wont affect Smarts draft.

    True. I still think he will be a pretty good player in the NBA, but honestly he is becoming a poster-boy for not coming back for a 2nd year. Other than the first game against Memphis he hasn't shown any real dominance this year. His shooting has been really spotty to say the least, his flopping is out of control (maybe a plus for NBA GM's), and his attitude has pretty much been exposed.

    What Smart did was out of control, but I don't have a problem with him for doing it. The punishment fits the crime, and that fan is extremely lucky of his surroundings. He shouldn't be allowed back in that arena ever again as far as I'm concerned. People make mistakes, I'm sure he learns from that. It's not like this was Malice at the Palace.

    That fan gives too much money to program to be banned for life.

    Not sure a GM would necessarily care, especially if the NBA tickets keep selling, and the dollars keep rolling in with all the gear and sponsorships. Remember all the bizarre theatrics that Dennis Rodman used to get away with...the trash talking, instigating, bumping, and flopping, until opposing players would finally lose it, lash out, and invariably be the ones called on the TF? With Rodman's ever growing freakish appearance, the dude seemed psycho half the time, and it was somewhat entertaining to see how much of his antics opposing players could withstand. As long as it does not impact the sale of the product, GM's probably think ANY press for these loose cannons is good press.

    A player messing with other players is one thing. Going into the stands and putting your hands on a fan (even a d-bag fan) is an entirely different issue. I don't pretend to know what GMs are thinking, but I don't think the two scenarios are related very closely.
