D.C. bros get into it with Paul George

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of my favorite moments during last night’s Pacers/Wizards game came toward the end of the third quarter. The Wiz were trying to make a run and get back in the game, and as they started pushing, the crowd there in D.C. started getting into the game. And at one stoppage in play, as Paul George walked past the scorer’s table, a couple of bros in the front row let George have it. (I couldn’t find room to fit this into last night’s 24-Second Thoughts. 😦 ) George, not one to back down, went right back and them, which caused these bros to stand and redouble their efforts, and George turned away. These sports bros may have gotten the last word, but Paul George got the win…

    Fans need to stop having word with the opposing teams. They should be escorted out of the game. After the first time they should lose membership privileges if the have any.

  2. Lawrence says:

    He shouldn’t have said anything and he should’ve got a tech called on him

  3. joe dodson says:

    Paul george is overrated

  4. GO PACERS says:

    Fans should respect the boundaries of human interaction just because people are in the spotlight does not make them emotionless. People get to carried away with their team spirit. Also if you could please tell me in what way is P.G overrated? top 3 defenders in league and big time scorer.

      league top three defenders

      1. tony allen
      2. andre iguodala
      3. joakim noah (only because he was named dpoy) so I would say the three spot is up for grabs and personally I wouldn’t give it paul George who isn’t known solely as a locked down defender.

    And while these two are watching the season highlights of their Wizards, #24 is playing against LBJ in the EC Finals. They played Pacer-like basketball last Sunday. If they keep playing like that they will be in the Finals.

    good on them! they get those seats they have the privilege to slag off whoever they want. i would love to be in that situation to slag off pretenders like paul george.
