Blazer fan throws something, hits Mark Cuban

Portland fans have always been considered maybe the best in the league. Mark Cuban is one of the most outspoken owners and fans in the league. He was in Portland Thursday for Game 3 between the Mavs and Blazers. What we had here was, a combustible situation. 

Cuban, who is always loud and proud in his Mavericks attire, reportedly was jawing back and forth with some Blazer fans when a "projectile" came flying down and hit him in the face.

“I don’t know what it was, but something hit me in the face,” Cuban told ESPN Dallas. He continued to egg on the fans to boo him more by putting his hand by his ear.

From that point on, the Rose Garden amped up the security around Cuban and that was the end of the situation.

I think a little arguing is harmless, but throwing things? That's weak sauce. Taking things past that line is just never good. That's why these type of things never work out right. Because some idiot always takes things a little too far. Like I said, you might not like Cuban. Doesn't matter. Don't act like an idiot at a game.

I hope he got hit in the face by whale semen!
I sat next to the Blazer fan who tossed his load at Cuban.  The substance was, in fact, sperm whale royal jelly.  While snorkling off the Gulf Coast, the would be spelunker swam into a female whale's woo-woo, presuming it a large underwater cavern.  Before he could correct his muffed dive, the daddy whale unloaded his precious cargo.  Jarring the specimen, the fan immediately thought, "If the Blazers make the playoffs, I should take this just in case I happen to be in the intermediate range of Mark Cuban." After the strike, the fan was prematurely ejected from the game.

He should just buy the fan's life and sell it to Google.

Although I don't condone anyone throwing objects at another person, I'd have to say that it's quite ironic that Mark Cuban of all people is hit by an object. Cuban is the ultimate geek who used his money to buy into a certain lifestyle. He's "tolerated" in Dallas, but no one admires him or respects him because even though he's obviously extremely intelligent in business, he doesn't have a clue about sports etiquette. He has the typical mentality of a little boy who only gets to play ball because the ball is his.

Mark Cuban is lying. I was sitting right by him the entire game. There was a lot of jawing going on between some fans next to me and him, but no thrown objects. If there was, there would've been a really huge commotion about it during the game as the place was absolutely sold out. It seems to me that he is trying to villainize Portland because of our intense fandom and losing in our house. Take advice from the NBA commissioner and stop complaining. AND by the way, Portland fans wouldn't throw something at the bench. The reason why security was increased is cuz people were trying to rush him and say 'hi' or get his autograph. God, what a Drama Queen.
