If you didn't see the shove that Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart put on a Texas Tech fan, you must be living in a hole. In fact, before you read any further, watch the GIF below.
As you can guess, Smart was ejected seconds after and left us all stunned. Looking closer at the GIF, he actually pushes the lady right next to the old guy. That's messed up. This reminded me kind of the "Malice in the Palace" which you can watch here. It of course didn't turn into a horrific fight like the one with Ron Artest and Ben Wallace, but the way that he immediately got up and shoved reminded me of it.
Smart is declining in draft stock. That means loss of money. He will be a top ten pick for sure, but as far as a top 3 or maybe even 5, I don't see him going that high. Who wants a guy with that kind of attitude? Nobody. Actions speak louder than words, and this is a prime example. Smart will now have to deal with a bad reputation. I haven't watched a whole ton of college basketball this year, but when it comes to a big name player like Smart, I pay attention. I am curious to find out what the overweight old man said to shoved by a lean, young, strong basketball player. Check back for future posts, as I will try to keep my blog updated.
