It's amazing how quickly people are willing to excuse such behavior once the race card comes into play. There is no evidence the guy said anything related to race that I have seen. I have seen no reports from anyone other than Marcus that it was said. I think that the obvious explanation right now is that Marcus screwed up and knew it and tried to get out of it. Now the TV had this fans personal info splattered all over the internet and people are tying to vilify him for the actions of Marcus.
The whole situation is sad and it is extremely disconcerting to see so many people rush to the side of the of the one who got physical with a fan.

The "victim" is on tape flicking off another player and we can all guess that he said something bad to get the reaction he did. He's not a sympathetic figure. But I'll agree that we can't be sure exactly what was said, and regardless of what he said Smart has to control himself.

Flicking off a player doesn't implicate a pattern of racist behavior.

Do you really think anyone's going to get worked up over that little speech? The only thing that's gonna do is make people laugh at the thought of your acne-ridden azz posting such dumb shit from your mom's computer

The irony of this situation is hilarious.

I'm done with you. You're going in circles because you have no argument.


gold, pure gold

If the guy really called him the N word to his face... I'm not surprised what happened, and I don't blame him (in an ideal world) for shoving the guy.

That being said we don't live in an ideal world and the correct decision would have been to not touch the fan.

Yeah that guy sound like the age his balls only halfway dropped but his point is that words can hurt someone, come on we aren't really arguing this are we? Can you imagine how much it must have hurt to hear fans making fun of your cancer-stricken daughter (Fisher) or your murdered father (Kerr)?

Yes because the only two things in this world are violence or slavery

I believe by law, the person who attacks his insulter is always in the wrong, meaning in a court of law you'll be the one found guilty of assault for kicking someone's ass for whatever they may have said.

That being said, the (US / Indian / Chinese) law =/= morality. By law slavery was legal in many parts of the world and even right now by law a man can beat his wife so long as there are no physical marks in the Arab Emierates.

When you do something that skirts on legal boundaries you have to be sure you know what you're sacrificing. Marcus in this case, was not smart about what he would have sacrificed trying to send a message. But I don't agree that in all scenarios it's best to follow the law for fear of persecution.

This. It would be a non story and Smart would get patted on the head for being a good little boy. This fan needs to get banned from games and the NCAA should look into how to better protect their players from this type of garbage. If this leads to some changes this could be for the better.
