You would think after watching the “Suns in 4” fan do his thing that people would avoid starting fights with Phoenix Suns fans, but some folks haven’t learned their lessons.
A video went viral on Sunday that shows a pair of Los Angeles Clippers fans getting into it with some Suns fans at Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. A fan in a Kawhi Leonard jersey was talking trash with a Suns fan wearing an orange jersey. The Clippers fan took a shot at the Suns fan, and then other people joined in.
One of the Clippers fans ended up getting punched and kicked on the ground by multiple people:
Shaquille O’Neal has no tolerance for the sort of poor play Ben Simmons displayed for the Philadelphia 76ers in the playoffs.
Simmons took responsibility after the Sixers’ Game 7 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night for his poor play in the series. Simmons answered all the tough questions despite being completely gun shy on the court and costing his team.
Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith complimented Simmons on facing the tough questions. Shaq acknowledged he liked what Simmons had to say, but said he would have been fed up with an important teammate not producing.
“If I play Game 1 and 2 and I know I’m not helping my team, what do you think I’m going to do in Game 3? I like what he said, but it don’t take seven games to know you’re not playing right. Get right. Be aggressive. I don’t want to hear all that,” Shaq said.
Then O’Neal got down to business.
“If he was in my locker room, I would have knocked his a– out,” Shaq said.
Now that is a threat. Some people probably don’t like hearing that, but that might help explain why Shaq won four championships during his career.

Jacob deGrom has been one of the league’s best hitting pitchers this year, but it sounds like that might have to change going forward.
deGrom admitted that a swing in his last start aggravated his shoulder issue, and it informed his thinking in his first start since on Monday. deGrom initially planned not to swing at all, but was put in an awkward situation when he came to the plate in the second inning with runners at second and third and two out. deGrom explained that he opted to take a more conservative swing, and he ended up flying out.
"I felt like I aggravated the shoulder on the swing last start so I was just trying to be smart there"
deGrom had been hitting .423 on the season, so he was more than holding his own at the plate. However, this was something the Mets wanted. deGrom wants to be healthy enough to keep pitching, so he has every reason to follow that advice.
The Dodgers have the second-best record in MLB behind the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants. The Padres are a top team too and only 3.5 games behind them in the standings. Plus, they have Darvish going in the game.
