Don’t touch the players.
Occasionally players will high-five people courtside, crash into them and spill a beer chasing a ball, and there is trash talk, but a person sitting courtside risks getting tossed from the arena if they reach out touch a player.
Which is what a young Nuggets fan did to Russell Westbrook on Tuesday night — standing, reaching out and pushing him — and Westbrook handled it like a patient father.
Westbrook said he spoke to the dad about this, not the boy.
It was a young boy making a mistake, and Westbrook is a father. He gets that, and good on everyone for not letting this go over the top.
But you can’t touch players during a game.
