Cavs fans had nothing on fans in Greece, just ask Josh Childress

1 Comment

There was a lot of anger in Cleveland last night, a lot of “a—hole” chants and a handful of people tossed from the building.

It reminded the Suns Josh Childress of Greece (where he played the last two seasons).

Well, not really, the Cavaliers fans were not angry enough and did not throw explosives or bodily waste onto the floor. Which is what Childress told FanHouse he saw launched while in Greece.

“Pieces of marble to ceramic, M-80s, lighters, cameras, cell phones, coins, bottles of urine, feces. Everything.”

Wait a minute? Bottles of urine?

“Actually, some of my buddies got hit with them,” Childress said. “I don’t even know why you would think to do that.”


“It’s as bad as it sounds,” Childress said.

Childress said the rule was not to pick up any paper or anything thrown on the court because people would wrap the explosives in them.

Anytime I become disappointed in how we as Americans act as fans at sporting events, I can count on the fans in other countries — usually soccer fans — to remind me just how bad it could be.

Somebody is in midseason form.

Stephen Curry put up 30 on Portland in a preseason game Thursday night, hitting six threes and getting to the line 15 times over the course of his less than 26 minutes. It was quite a show.

Portland won the game 118-101 behind 25 points from Allen Crabbe and 22 from Damian Lillard. Not a lot of defense in this one but it was fun to watch.

Anthony Bennett moves around, dunks on Lakers’ Upshaw (VIDEO)

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.
