I really hate when people indict an entire fanbase based off the actions of an isolated idiot or two. Like saying "Dodger fans are the worst!" just because a couple complete morons jumped a Giants fan.
But it's sort of hard to defend Bulls fans for this one. Spitting at people is low, but spitting at Grant Hill? That's bad. Via the Arizona Republic:
And no, the Bulls fan wasn't Jalen Rose. They made up, remember? I don't know what posseses people to forget these are sports and not really that important, but of all people, Grant Hill? Really? Hasn't the guy won the Sportsmanship Award like five times?
As Hill left the floor after the game, he was held back from a fan who he said cursed and spit at him.
“He said some profanity and spit in my direction,” Hill said. “I’m not going to let somebody spit at me. He knew he did wrong because he took off running.”
Hill was held back by security, who caught the fan.
“I just saw the anger in his face,” (Vince) Carter said. “When you see Grant like that, you know something’s up. Grant doesn’t say anything to anybody. He competes and does his job.”
Again, one idiot an entire fanbase does not make, but if you're going to act like a total moron to a visiting player, have it be someone other than Grant Hill at least. Because that makes you look even worse than normal.
