You see, it takes a real man to go into the stands are start punching some douchebag that threw a coke at you. Oh, and if you disagree, you’re obviously a racist.
“Now, some athletes might shoot up, stand and start looking for the culprit, not really wanting any action. But thatâ€™s not because theyâ€™re thinking, â€˜Oh I gotta be cool here,â€™ if anything theyâ€™re scared of getting their asses kicked (think about how many NBA fights youâ€™ve seen and think about how many of the players involved have given the impression they could actually defend themselves).
Artest, though, is not that scared guy. Any person secure in knowing they can confront that fanâ€™s action with a reciprocal act in kind – will do so.
Artest is that guy.”
