    At least for the first few games in the first round, all the young talent more or less crushed the old guard. The future looks bright for the NBA.

    Was the movie racist because two white guys kidnapping a black guy isnít a good look currently.

    Danny Ainge is an ass hat.

    Celtic Pride! hahahaha... great call. I completely forgot about that movie.

    BTW - if they really want to get these asshole fans to stop this shit, then instead of just kicking them out they should publicly reveal who they are. Then it has real consequences and people will be far more likely to stop.

    The popcorn dumping fan should be prosecuted for assault, which is simply "an intentional offensive touching." Doesn't matter if the touching is his hand or the popcorn. I have definitely seen prosecutors charge more trivial, minor assaults. You would need the victim to agree to testify that they were offended by the act, but Westbrook would probably be willing to do so. Then that fan can deal with all the ramifications of being convicted of assault (like never being allowed into Canada or becoming a nurse) that millions or Americans have to deal with. And any criminal charge is public record.

    And what is it with Jazz fans dropping racial taunts?

    Cause theyíre surrounded by a bunch of other white people. If they were standing next to some other fan whoís black, youíd better believe those chumps wonít say a fucking word for fear of getting a beating. Hell in CA other white people would kick their ass just the same.

    You all should read Jaylen Brown's response to Kyrie. Kyrie always seems to be trying to convince himself he's the smartest guy in the room by dropping semi coherent "wisdom." Brown IS the smartest guy in the room and actually delivers.

    What Brown said was thoughtful but also contained a degree of what-aboutism to it. Iím not a Kyrie fan at all but considering how Boston fans feel about him I donít blame him for being concerned ahead of that game.

    Racism is a plague on the United States. It's rampant everywhere. It's not just in Utah, but yes the dominate culture in Utah (Mormons) have a very racist history.

    Obviously it's not an isolated incident in Utah, but I like how many want to spin it that way. Some are all too quick to bash Mormons.

    I'm honestly surprised it has become a pattern at Jazz games, not because Mormons aren't racist. It is because they know the world thinks they are racists and are extremely self conscious about this. Of course, it's just a few bad apples. The Jazz have always fielded some of the whitest teams in the NBA and you have to think this pattern either does, or will, affect their ability to attract free agents. Portland is the second whitest big city in the US after SLC but you read about Blazers who enjoy the community, buy houses, and stick around even after they are traded or retire. Not as much in SLC. I lived next to the Marriott Residence Inn back in 2002 in SLC. Mark Jackson was living there and I got the impression he was in the state to play ball and then was going to get the fuck out.

    True. But they were asking Brown about Kyrie's statement, racism at the Garden, etc. So I don't think he was engaging in whataboutism so much as he was saying "I don't want to get sucked into that microscope, I'd rather pull back and talk about the much bigger picture if you want to talk about racism."

    I don't think what Kyrie said was bad or wrong, and I'm not sure Brown was intending to criticize Kyrie, I think he was just trying to show perspective.

    I haven't seen folks say this only happens in Utah, it happens everywhere, but Utah has its fair share (as does Boston, in a Celtics fan and I can acknowledge that). And in my view, most/all of these player fan interactions are racist, even when racist words aren't used. How many of these interactions involve a black fan? A white player? Whether it's popcorn or spitting or racist words, it's always a white fan and a black player. At least that's what I see.

    Sorry to see. RIP Big Guy.

    ďDuring his 1984-85 season, the 7-footer set an all-time NBA record of 5.6 blocks per game. Eaton also holds the NBA record for the most blocks in a season with 456.Ē

    5.6 blocks per game? Thatís insane.

    Those two towns seem to have a disproportionately high number of racist incidents from fans. Kinda ironic that they put Damon Wayans in Jazz jersey for the movie poster, kidnapped by Celtics fans. It's even made it hard for Jazz to attract Free Agents.

    Irish Catholics and Mormons have big families, fairly homogenous. But who knows, probably turns out that the Jazz fan who said "I'm going to put a coin in your back and make you dance, boy" to Ja Morant's dad was a just a non-Mormon run of the mill racist.

    Interesting way for the Zers to achieve a blowout. Nice to see others have sold game when Dame is off.

    Too bad Dillon Brooks fouls out of every game. I've seen a couple games in the last few weeks that the grizzly could have used brooks and he's fouled out......

    Now Morant impresses me every time I see him play. Dude has to be one of quicker players in the NBA. His cross is deadly and he gets his shot up fast. Seemed like he was going right at gobert all night, which you gotta love that competitive spirit.

    Nice to see Conley light up his old team tho.

    RIP Mark Eaton. Mark was a friend of my father's and he was always engaging and friendly when I met him. Plus how many NBA legends can you say you saw lined up at Alta pre-opening bell on a pow day? I definitely saw Eaton on a number of occasions, you really can't miss 7 footers skiing. He will be missed and my heart goes out to his family.

    eh, who cares if he "stomped" on a logo on the floor? Kyrie was playing in a hostile environment, probably heard "fuck you' all night and he balled out (39 pts/11 rebs/2 assists/2 steals). Do celtics fans cry every time they do a jump ball? Looks like Kyrie is winning out there, both mentally and on the scoreboard.

    Kyrie is making Celtic fans look like fools and racists.

    Not really following the jump ball comparison... not even close to the same thing.
