Bold statement. But to be honest, there's nothing wrong with this as long as he doesn't do it. It would be very annoying to have a bunch of cocky, fairweather fans screaming at you (God knows what the hell they're saying).

I didnt see them complaining when they had more fans at the Pacers and Hawks arena. First hostile arena all season and it's a problem? Do you understand what Bron, Wade and Bosh has gone through but still kept their composure?

Should LeBron use the word "********" to refer to a question?

Everyone knows what he meant. And everyone should know what Deng is saying here.

I got to 5-6 Chicago games a year (usually to watch the other team) and Chicago fans are just as bad as anyone. They were yelling at LeBron this year asking if Delonte is still punishing his mom.

Uhhh maybe he shouldn't have said it but, with some of the **** I have heard fans and people say to players I am blown away there aren't fights more often. While I understand they have to keep it professional there is still a line too which these guys are only human and crossing that line would make the nicest of people go off.

He was saying it in regards to backing up his teammate. Just cause our players don't say something to every fan that acts like a ****ing neanderthal doesn't mean they don't face it every game they are at.

I have nothing wrong with him backing up Jo and at least letting people know that a line was crossed and this wasn't just a simple unprovoked attack.

Terrible word choice but, I think allot of us are guilty of having a bad mouth.

Noah's gone through it his whole playing career. If you watched him at Florida, then you know what I mean. I'm surprised he hasn't done something like this sooner.

Kentucky and Tennessee games his junior year, arena-wide chants of "Noah's ugly" and "Noah sucks" were heard constantly. It's different when fans involve family.

I find it hilarious that some fat goon with a Coke in one hand, and a hot dog in another, would talk ish to a supremely conditioned athlete in the prime of his life.

look, every fanbase taunts other players. They go to the arena and drink all game. They get drunk and they are already obnoxious because its a playoff home game. If you're the road team, you do your best to let it bounce off you. Sometimes it does get under your nerves, but the absolute worst thing to do as a player is to say anything to a fan or to the media about the fans in general..... The Bulls have done this 2 times in 2 days, not a good idea. Thibs needs to get his players to stop talking to the media about the fans, and to keep quite to the fans...

Not very educated responses here at all. Deng said this as a defense to what players feel like when they hear this verbal garbage. He said they are human, and even he has felt like hitting a fan. He never said it has happened in this series to him. He has taken alot of flak from bulls fans the past couple yrs, so he was probably referring to that.

To the people talking trash on him, especially that "bright" one calling him a thug. Deng has won the NBA sportsmanship award, the NBA community assist award and has been nominated for a UN humanitarian awards. It crazy how far people take some off handed comments and then gossip like school girls

Boring nonstory here. Every NBA team has idiots at the games, and obviously it bothers Deng like it would any player. Deng is pretty open if you ask him questions and doesn't bit his tongue a ton. So all Deng is saying is what most NBA players probably feel. As long as he doesn't do anything, it's a non story. FWIW why are Heat fans trying to make something out of nothing here and in a few other threads?

I hate that argument. Should I be able to walk into a pizza hut and just start yelling at the cook a bunch of obscenities because I paid his salary? Because they would not get paid if it wasn't for me, the consumer buying a pizza. Of course not. Only in sports, a man can get drunk and liquored up, and start acting like a complete moron around women and children, and think that it is acceptable behavior. Which it is not.

does that cook make $5 million dollars a year to entertain you in a competitive sport?


As I said, heckling has been around forever. Deal with it. If you can't, become a cook at Pizza Hut...

Not very educated responses here at all. Deng said this as a defense to what players feel like when they hear this verbal garbage. He said they are human, and even he has felt like hitting a fan. He never said it has happened in this series to him. He has taken alot of flak from bulls fans the past couple yrs, so he was probably referring to that.

To the people talking trash on him, especially that "bright" one calling him a thug. Deng has won the NBA sportsmanship award, the NBA community assist award and has been nominated for a UN humanitarian awards. It crazy how far people take some off handed comments and then gossip like school girls

Exactly, there's no story here. But people trying to make something out of nothing.

What the heck are you talking about? You are making no sense. Deng got asked a question and answered it honestly. Yes most NBA players are cowards and lie when getting asked this questioned all the time. Why does Deng have to shut up and play basketball, when he got a question on a off day and answered it? Shut up and play basketball. Usually means a player is whinning on the court and during a game. That is not happening here at all. So again none of your post makes sense, especially the part about him backing it up. Backing what up? He never said he was going to go hit idiot fans he just said they get on his nerves sometimes and he almost wants to go hit them. Which 80-90 percent of NBA players probably feel the same way at times.

Okay, how about a movie star. How about the President? They make lots of money to do their jobs. We as movie viewers buy tickets and pay these million dollar stars. Should we yell at them and talk about their failed marriages, and drug addictions? Should I be able to yell at Maria Shriver about her cheating husband because she makes a lot of money? Of course not because I would be a complete jack *** to think that I could or should be able to do that because of her bank account. I guess she should go work at Pizza Hut as a cook as well.

none of them play in a competitive, by the second, environment, for a living dude. Hecklers have been around forever. Athletes, ESPECIALLY in the NBA, since they are right on top of them, need to get used to it. Its always been that way.

Look, I am not defending the jerk who made a comment from the crowd. I am simply saying, in order to be a pro basketball player, you need to learn to deal with the fans in a hostile environment. They get payed ridiculous amounts of money to do so. Man up.

Its PC comments like some of the ones I have read in here that make me understand why the nation is headed down sensitivity alley (and I don't mean that at you).

and his way of dealing with it is this way. call it stupid, call it whatever you want but I don't care if I was a millionaire playing a sport or making minimum wage. If I continually got harassed by people like you or whoever condone talking about someones family I'd say what deng said without hesitating.

Fans can say what ever they want because they paid for at ticket, that's fine. But that doesn't give them a pass for being complete ignorant idiots. The only thing deng did wrong was say it to the media the amount of money he gets has nothing to do with his reaction to being disrespected.

Would I have said what Deng said to the media? No. Is what deng said to the media a big deal? No.

I commend Lebron for having the restraint to not belittle fans talking about his mom.

You got enough balls to talk about my mom being with a former teammate then you've earned the right to be called a fat slob if you're obese.

As a fan as long as it doesn't impact his game enough to actually do it, I couldn't care less about what he says to the media.

you mean like lebron james gets about his mom at every arena multiple times a game. its about how the player handles it. u cant let it get under ur skin. if the fan actually approaches a family member then by all means do ur thing, if not then let ur play do the talking

They shouldnt be doing it to heat players either. Friendly taunts I have no problem with, like saying a guy he sucks.

But when you start saying stuff about peoples families(including lebrons mom) thats where it gets out of hand.

I think people tend forget that athletes are also humans. I mean I know everyone on here is tough as nails and a super hard *** and no words will ever irritate you, but not everyone can be as bad *** as you guys.

Some of you guys are acting like the fan must've said something not sooo bad. Players can act like profesional athletes.. but what happens when fans don't play their part and cross that line? Basketball players are human beings too.

I think the other article said that the fan was drunk, yelling all night, and even a lot of the other fans were looking at him like "dude.. stop".


anyways, Deng didn't hit anybody, so chill.

I wouldn't say anything like that about the people who write my cheques, if I did, I'd be unemployed. Yes telling the media that you wanted to punch a fan for getting into your head is being weak, he needs to be able to tune that out and just play, like every other player or he shouldn't be playing. You're obviously just defending your team's player out of emotion, because if you think logically, players are harassed all the time by opposing crowds and they say the worst possible things, but you still need to be professional at all times... Saying something like that in the media when you're considered a role model for people of all ages is just not acceptable.

This is the kind of thing that Doc Rivers said helped strengthen the HEAT team. The HEAT have had to deal with this behavior (to an extreme) all year and they have hardened themselves to it. Other teams that haven't had to deal with it to such extremes are at a disadvantage in the playoffs when the adversity kicks in. We saw Noah lose his cool/composure. He needs to learn to block out the fans, no matter what they are saying. He gets paid way too much money to let a low life throw him off his game.

Tell that to Bryan Stow the guy that was beaten opening day at the Dodgers game. I understand he wasn't attacked by a player etc, but so say in America we don't just hit people is asinine, frankly I've had my fair share of fights, who hasn't punched someone in thier life for running thier mouth or worse? The fact is that we do live in a violent society, and most professional sports figures grew up surrounded by that violence. I was at the Malace at Palace game when the Pacers and the fans when at it. Regardless of these guys being athletes with money they are human first, and anger is a common emotion. I personally am shocked that athlete / fans don't get into more altercations than they do. And if Noah, LeBron, Kobe or any other player called me name I can gaurantee they would never be able to play ball again!

I know some of the Miami fans can be douches since I've been to so many Heat games in my lifetime, but if your Deng or Noah, I'd take daleja's advance and just ignore it. People are going to say things, some things nasty, rude, annoying, whatever word you wanna use. Personally, I'd just ignore it, but I definitely get where both Luol and Noah are coming from. Especially during playoff games like this, it's almost impossible to not say something to a heckler.

I said, I am not defending the guy. Hell, a heckler went after MJ with a comment about his murdered father. That is horrible.

Point is, no matter what is said, you need to act professional at all times towards the fans in pro sports. They pay your salary, and its a lucrative one at that.

I understand Bulls fans will come to Loul's defense here, but I highly doubt you would had it been LeBron in this situation. Think about the situation, not the player involved (unless its a raving lunatic like Artest obviously)

does anyone here seriously think Deng hears 1/100th of the **** LeBron, or Kobe has over their careers? And yet they have said nothing to fans. I can tell how young many are on this site with threads like this. This country is producing the most over-sensitive young men and women. Do you think Deng hears 1/100th of the **** MJ, or Bird did? Yet, they moved about their business.

Stop defending Deng here. Fans can be douchebags. If the players don't like, it, don't play in a competitive sport where they serve fans beer and sit them 8 feet behind you.

I feel the exact same way towards PSD sometimes. Deng's just answering questions, telling it like it is. I'm just glad this Bulls team has the balls to say something.

Plus "feel" doesn't mean "do". Everyone has had that urge to punch someone they found annoying. He was empathizing with Noah as the article stated. And it's clear that there has to be an ability to hold your emotions in check, which Deng has proven he can based upon this article.

I don't get why people are so offended by this.


NOPE. I would realize that I make millions of dollars and the guy yelling at me makes MAYBE one hundreth of that. I would realize that the fan is just trying to get into my head...and I wouldn't let him. I would go about my business and shut him up the professional way, but taking his team to school on the court.

I know some of the Miami fans can be douches since I've been to so many Heat games in my lifetime, but if your Deng or Noah, I'd take daleja's advance and just ignore it. People are going to say things, some things nasty, rude, annoying, whatever word you wanna use. Personally, I'd just ignore it, but I definitely get where both Luol and Noah are coming from. Especially during playoff games like this, it's almost impossible to not say something to a heckler.

As I said, it's easier said than done. I commend players in the NBA because they have to deal with this day and night, and do a very respectable job, as you rarely hear these kind of stories.

But looking at PSD, and the amount of back and forth bickering that goes on between people, do you really thing it's easy to 'ignore' it?

For example, people say "to get rid of a troll, ignore them", and how often does that happen?

Regardless, I agree with your overall statement.

Directing your anger at fans that make your nba career/millions possible isn't about having balls, it's stupidity. Without fans there wont be any NBA, anyone that paid $500 for a ticket should have the right to say whatever they want. Luol Deng is not the one paying here, it's the fans.

Luol just said what he felt and that's okay. I don't have a problem with it. I'm obviously a Heat fan, and there have been numerous times I wanted to hit another Heat fan for being just so damn obnoxious during the games, and potentially ruining a great experience watching a live Heat playoff game. But keep in mind the players are here to play a game they're getting paid to play, not to muck it up or get into verbal or even physical confrontations with morons that spend the entire the game drinking for God knows how long. Noah is a very emotional guy, and that can be one's greatest asset, and one's greatest Achilles heel in the same breath, especially in the heat of a game of a series that's as physical and as intense as it gets. We all saw how chippy Game 3 was and it's easy for fans to get sucked into the game being played.

However, here's the problem I have. Cameramen know how emotional and hotheaded Noah can be, so after picking up his 2nd foul, knowing how frustrated and miffed he'll be, why not just show his frustration for a little and then get back to the game and not focus on what Noah says after the fact while he's on the bench. The NBA has to do a better job of protecting the players as well, because even though fans pay to get tickets to go to these games, it shouldn't warrant these idiots to say whatever they want to say, obviously with negative intentions. There needs to be a line in the sand here. Hawkeye mentioned a fans juvenile shot at MJ's father who died, that's unacceptable and very punkish.

That's why I said I understand why Noah would say something he didn't mean and why Deng would feel the way he feels. I know how bad Miami fans can be and I know how level headed off the court Noah really is. We have no idea what the fan said, but it must have been awful for Noah to respond the way he did, and might be even worse considering Deng felt like hitting someone, which is something I simply couldn't see Deng doing. Still, players have to rise above stupidity and let it be.

Like what could've possibly been said from that fan...it wasn't like Deng played bad. If a fan can get under his skin that badly, same with Noah, then I don't see them touching the Heat for the rest of the series.

I totally get what he is saying. These fans say things because they know the players can't do anything about it. But wouldn't it be great for some loud mouth to get his teeth knocked out because he acted like a tough guy. I find it hilarious that some fat goon with a Coke in one hand, and a hot dog in another, would talk ish to a supremely conditioned athlete in the prime of his life. Some of these fat lards need be made an example out of, so other out of shape losers know they cant just run their mouths all the time

+1. If fans are lucky enough to be that close, they should have more class than that. Its like in baseball, you are more likely to get trouble makers out in the bleacher seats.

He isn't defending Noah's actions. He's trying to support his teammate. He's saying it should go both ways as far as treatment towards players/fans in that situation.


"[Noah's] got to do a better job of controlling his emotions,"

So, yes, there are times when you feel like doing something, but you have to control your emotions.

What Joakim said/did was unprofessional, but I don't believe Deng is in the wrong.

True, but the name "Luol Deng" doesn't exactly hold the same weight as "Lebron James" or "Kobe Bryant". It's obvious as top players in the league, you're going to hear to more flack because you're better known, etc.

Still, his comments weren't directed towards the number of things heard by fans. It was directed towards the general idea, that the player/fan relationship needs to be looked into, as only the players are being held accountable for their actions.

I don't know the situation between Noah and the fan. I don't know what was said, and how long it was going for. Therefore, I will not pass judgement on what should have and should not have been done. Only that Joakim certainly has to do a better job with his emotions.

Still, I don't understand the flack Deng is getting, as I feel people in this thread are just holding on to the idea that "Deng wants to punch someone" rather than the whole idea/article.

And I don't care what deng and noah say. Especially if I was making millions?....oh no, stern got his panties in a bunch and is going to fine me 50K. That's like a normal joe getting fined $100; you would notice it, but it wouldn't hurt you. What a joke.

The point was that in DET the players actually got to beat on the fans. In Miami, would get a million times worse and the players would get hurt because we (Miami fans, not me) tend to be more agresive in the stands. Now I'm not saying that if he goes after a fan it wasn't warrented, just that he would be met with more aggresion than he would in DET. Anyone that has gone to any U of M games wearing something not orange or green knows what I'm talking about. Now college football and NBA basketball are 2 diffrent animals.....but still animals. I don't think Deng has the pair it takes to go into a crowd here, unless it's the uppety first row of people who missed the REG season but show up in the playoffs. Now, I'm in NO WAY condoning any violence against anyone who goes into the seats but I just know that it would be the case and the player would get the worst of it.

DET is the murder capitol of the world but I can bet you none of those murders took place in the palace..... as far as Africa, I think Deng is as far removed from the violence in Africa as you or me.

Lmao wow I can imagine some going to the fullest extent to prove his point.

All this thug talk is funny....90% of these posters probably never been in the hood. NY, CHI, CALI & N.O? Have the most dangerous hoods but what does have to do with the Deng situation?

I am a teacher. I hear crap from students all day everyday and manage to remain professional... and I make less in a year than some of these guys make PER GAME. Professionals need to act like professionals... always. If I snap on a student I could get fired.... forget about a silly little fine...

Did Deng snap or hit a fan? NO, he remained professional. Deng obviously didn't really mean that he was going to go in the crowd amd hurt someone.

Probably something he should of kept to himself. I'm sure many players feel this way but best to keep it inside.

He shouldn't have said that but to be honest I can't blame him. You Miami fans have become absolute *******s since you got Lebron, I have never seen a more annoying fan base in my life. This is coming from a Giants fan who has to deal with Eagle fans cause I work in south Jersey which is Eagle country.

There have been so many times I have felt like jumping thru my computer and punching a Miami fan. So I can relate to what Deng is saying.

I don't blame him. Fans get to say whatever they want when players are not supposed to be human and just ignore it all. While I will never sympathize with a millionaire's misery they should be allowed to speak back if they choose too. You see ignorant comments on this site all the f$cking time(joking just making a point). Just imagine what some coward is going to say all liquored up with his friends and knowing the person he is yelling at can't do a thing without being fined. As long as he hasn't done it who cares? Fans overstep their boundaries all the time.

This isn't a big deal at all...How would heat fans feel if Lebron said this? Would love to hear what Dnew has to say about that? And no I'm not mad

I really think Deng is speaking for not just himself but all of other NBA fans. Miami fans have gotten so freaking annoying.

Only the PSD NBA forum could have a 16 page thread about a comment that really isn't a big deal.

I got to 5-6 Chicago games a year (usually to watch the other team) and Chicago fans are just as bad as anyone. They were yelling at LeBron this year asking if Delonte is still punishing his mom.
Understatement. I'm from Chicago, and Chicago stadiums are easily the douchiest in the world.

There's a huge difference....we were always a-holes, it stems from decades of living and dying with our teams. You guys get Lebron and and now there is such a thing as a Heat fan? You got to earn being a jerk through years of pain and suffering.

Our obnoxious disposition has always been there....its tolerable, but bandwagon fans who've never rooted for **** (except Marino and the Hurri-Co-caines), who now think they are the **** is very ANNOYING.

You gotta earn the right to be a dick. Trying to buy your way into the club isnt cutting it.
