I totally agree with professional athletes who claim that fans pay for their seat, not for the right to scream obscenities and act childish…
That said, I think we can all agree that Keven Durant took things a little too far this time.
During the Brooklyn Nets’ 113-111 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, courtside footage caught one Nets fan trying to urge KD to “take over” the game. Some players would hear something like that and get motivated, but not Durant.
Rather, he looked at the fan and told him to “STFU and sit down.”
It’s not like this was a fan from an opposing team heckling KD. This was a Nets fan! Rooting Durant on! And he reacted like that?
