Ramblings

During the Wizards / Sixers game today, a guy ran on to the court in what seems like an attempt to touch the backboard. It was, at least, relatively harmless in terms of in-game antics, and also kind of funny.

The NBA playoffs so far, though, are a different story. Fans have been punished for the following acts this week: throwing a bottle of water at Kyrie Irving, dumping popcorn on Russell Westbrook, spitting on Trae Young, and harassing Ja Morant’s family.

Now, while Philadelphia, Boston, New York and Salt Lake City aren’t known for hospitable sports fan-bases, I think what we’re beginning to see is more about where society is at right now than anything. Fans are just barely being allowed back to games and people already are going fucking crazy.

Looking out at the rest of the USA, and there’s plenty of violence and unease to go around. As the public begins to re-emerge, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if these incidents are actually indicative of general madness still to come.

(That being said, the playoffs are otherwise great, go Blazers.)
