TCU Fans Waste Their Justin Bieber Taunts on Deaf Texas Tech Guard

Luke Adams is a freshman guard on the Texas Tech basketball team. The 5’9″ 150-pounder from Big Spring, Texas played 11 minutes for the Red Raiders in a 75-69 loss to TCU Tuesday night. Adams recorded 3 points, 3 assists, and a steal playing some mop-up duties. He also was the recipient of some fan taunts — for obvious reasons.

Texas Tech insider Chris Level tweeted that TCU fans were taunting Adams for looking like Justin Bieber. Between the hairstyles and Adams’ small stature, the comparison was natural. Only there was one key problem: Adams is deaf and can’t hear the taunts.

I’m not about to tell you that def players should be pitied on the court. I believe the opposite — they probably want to be treated like everyone else — and as long as they’re on the field or court, they’re fair game.

My point is that if you’re going to taunt someone, TCU fans, at least do a little research beforehand to make sure it works. Maybe next time some cardboard cutouts would be more appropriate. Ask Celtics fans about that if you need some help.

    “Do some research first”  says Larry Brown.  Research the background of all players of an opposing team before a basketball game?  Really Larry?  REALLY?

    I believe he can hear just fine now — he had an implant awhile back and is in line for another one.

    Um, what does the C in TCU stand for?  Classless?

    Yes because heckling a player for resembling an extremely metro-sexual teen pop singer is so classless. Give me a break.

    No because acting like 3 year olds on a playground makes them classless punks, if you think differently, then you must be a child yourself,

    I’ll skip over the slant about me being a child myself. May I ask what you think is appropriate behavior from rowdy students at a sporting event?
