The Knicks did well to investigate and act so swiftly. Spitting on players is obviously completely unacceptable.
Like with the Philadelphia situation, some might question why the fan received only an indefinite, not lifetime, ban. But there’s a case he should have an opportunity to earn redemption. How can he demonstrate he should be allowed back into games some day? I have no idea. That should be his problem after such a disgusting incident.
