Wall, Westbrook in club where shooting happened

A number of NBA and NFL players were partying at a New York City nightclub when a gunman opened fire, killing an ex-con and injuring two others, according to the New York Daily News.

None of the NFL or NBA players were injured. Among them though were John Wall, Russell Westbrook, Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon and Kemba Walker, as well as five New York Giants -- Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Aaron Ross, Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty. The NBA players were still in New York, presumably after the players' meeting that happened Monday.
The gunman, clad in a white leather jacket, crashed the crowded party at the Juliet Supper Club on W. 21st St. by squeezing off five shots shortly before 2:30 a.m., police said.
[...]

In Tuesday’s bloodshed, the killer is thought to have fired the shots in a bid to get even after a woman was bumped on the dance floor — but her relationship to the gunman was not clear, the sources said.
Also in the club was actress Reese Witherspoon and her former husband Ryan Phillippe. Again, no players were involved or injured. They were just there when some psycho came storming in firing off shots. Which is extremely scary.

What?  No mention of the white thugs that were in the club, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe?  Sounds like it was an upscale club to me where a psycho started shooting, but evidently many of the people posting on this incident assume it was some sort of "thug" hangout and all NBA players are "thugs."  I guess all the "thug" comments are a veiled way to say "black" or worse.  The racist undertones of a lot of these posts is sickening.  If you don't like the NBA, fine, but leave your veiled racist comments in-between your ears.

i could not agree more with DrukenIrish. It's is so frickin awesome not to have to suffer through listening to NBA analysis when watching shows like Mike and Mike, First Take, etc. Hopefully the NBA thugs never come back! Of course, that will never happen, but let's just enjoy the time without the torture.

Life without the NBA is awesome.  I love hearing more about the NFL, NHL and NCAA-BB.

Anyone that likes to go to clubs at the age of 30 is a looser. Who cares about these thugs. The NBA is one big thug fest.

I wanted to make a Plaxico Burress comment but when I noticed there were 13 pages of comments I assumed I was beaten to it and I didn't bother.

Too bad that loud mouth classless punk bitch Brandon Jacobs wasn't shot.


Sorry, BJ was busy giving DeSean Jackson public relations tips.
