I say this all the time and some people disagree, but I believe it to be true.
99% of fans would never say or do the things they do while they are in the crowd or online, if they were standing in front of the player on the street.
I have a motto anything I write or say about an athlete, I would say it to their face because hiding behind a keyboard or 20 rows up makes your moist.
I wish security would have let Grant Hill catch up with this loser who spit at him last night after the game.
As Hill left the floor after the game, he was held back from a fan who he said cursed and spit at him.
“He said some profanity and spit in my direction,” Hill said. “I’m not going to let somebody spit at me. He knew he did wrong because he took off running.”
Hill was held back by security, who caught the fan.
“I just saw the anger in his face,” Carter said. “When you see Grant like that, you know something’s up. Grant doesn’t say anything to anybody. He competes and does his job.”
Beyond disagreeing about his reaction to the Fab 5 documentary, Grant Hill has been a model player and person for two decades, so for him to be ready to throw blows you know it was something serious.
When you are in the spotlight you are going to get criticized that comes with the territory. You are going to get made fun of and ridiculed at times.
But there are some lines you never cross. I don’t think you should curse at players, cause you wouldn’t do that face to face. If you spit at someone I think it is well within the players right to punch you in the jaw.
The fan showed his true colors by running away.
He isn’t angry at Grant Hill, he is mad at his miserable existence and because of his low self esteem has to pump himself up by trying to act like a tough guy 20 rows up.
That is weak and if you are currently doing that, just stop because you are embarrassing yourself.
