Magic Fans Like to Heckle Their Own Players, Drink

It’s a terrific combination: “A Magic player was heckled by a fan — just outside the team’s locker room. ‘Blue’ is an exclusive club located directly outside the dressing room, a place where well-heeled season-ticket holders congregate to eat, drink and be merry. They can root on the team as they enter and exit the locker room, and many linger after the game to chit-chat with players, who usually stop by on their way out to sign autographs. Shooting guard Mickael Pietrus apparently was in no mood — too blue for the ‘Blue’ folks after the loss — and walked past to head to the players’ parking lot. Pleading by some fans did not persuade Pietrus to turn back. A security guard and Pietrus himself told me that somebody yelled, ‘Better go work on your jump-shot!’”

    hope he screamed that in french. This reminds me of the entourage episode where Drama was swooning over Odom’s calves at an aftergame party.

    He gets told to work on a jumpshot… which needs work.
    btw, my first comment wasn’t directed at you Tuomas (or Darksaber).

    That’s really the best part Hursty. What’s he gonna say back to that even if he tried? Just hang his head a bit lower and make a quick exit.

    I bet that somebody fan was none other than just Stan Van himself, crticizing one of his players again.

    I dislike stupid fans. Without them, the Pistons/Pacers brawl would have never happened.

    The above post is thick with irony.
