Marcus Smart pushes fan near end of loss to Texas Tech (UPDATE: Smart suspended three games)
Obviously, Smart can't do that, no matter how justified it may be. That's not necessarily fair, but it's reality, and he'll likely face some sort of suspension, and is certainly to be given a reputation as a "hothead," or worse, a "thug."
The Texas Tech fan, according to Deadspin, is one of those self-proclaimed "super fans." There are reports that the fan said something racial, perhaps the N-word. If that is the case (and again, that's far from confirmed), I can't say for certain how I would've reacted. That's all I have to say about that.
Smart will face consequences for his actions, but here's hoping this "super fan" doesn't get off scot free.
UPDATE: Smart has been suspended for three games.
