The NBA seems to have a short temper when it comes to dealing with fans. After an altercation with a fan of the Lakers after their loss to the Phoenix Suns, guard Rajon Rondo felt like he had very few options left. The guard ended up removing the fan from the stadium.
The Staples Center match was a major match up between the two teams which had faced each other last season. While this was a match up for the Lakers to get a score up after losing to the runner-up team last season, they ended up losing with the score of 115-105.
The incident with the Lakers fan start off rather quietly. No one really knew what happened until the match up started off. At first, Rondo was seen pointing a finger at the fan. After a while, the fan slapped his hand off, which aggravated the guard. That led to the fan being thrown off the Staples Center.
A fan took to Twitter in order to show the clip of the altercation. The player has been with the Lakers for a one-year, $2.6 million deal. The guard performed six points and four rebounds in his 14 minutes into the field. While this altercation led to a fans’ removal, it just goes to show that players shouldn’t be tampered with in times of great stress.
