I listened to it again, heard it. I was listening for "piece of crap!" but he says it like "piece of........ ...crap!". It's clearly audible though.

Not sure why this caused Smart's reaction

That is what I've said all along. People just want a reason to be outraged. Smart is a headcase and shoved a fan. People jumped on the race bandwagon and trumpeted him a hero.

It doesn't matter what was said.. he was never a hero

People cheering him on really don't give a crap about Smart. If they did they'd want what's best for him and what's best is heading into the NBA draft with a solid reputation

you add this to his other outbursts and now he's looking like a head case that might make teams pause

My god you are truly brain dead :

If job opportunities were more prevalent for minorities up north.. they could afford the cost of living and wouldn't be moving down south.

And please stop moving the damn goal posts on this discussion.. show me where I said people of color were "running from racism up north". You are a complete moron. I simply said if racism was as bad in the south as you and other morons try to suggest, people of color wouldn't be flocking here and they wouldn't have the type of opportunities that is given to them down here.

The argument that people in the south are a bunch of racist or more racist than people up north is completely a false stereotype. Again, I've lived in both places.. in multiple cities in both places. I've never experienced blatant out in the open racism like I did when I lived north of the Mason-dixon line.. including by law enforcement.

Case closed. "Piece of crap" is what you clearly hear be yelled at him.

Yeah the rest isn't really audible. No case closed here.

Right after this happens, the ESPNU camera caught Orr saying I'm sorry about that. It's done. Over.

That's not what I said. I was just pointing out that he's been a jerk.

I don't like it when fans (especially an adult like Orr) disrespect players like this but I wouldn't pass a rule against it.

In Europe soccer fans routinely throw bananas at black players, and over here people are losing their minds because some fat dude called Smart a 'piece of crap'.
