By now you probably heard what happened with Jusuf Nurkic.
Jusuf Nurkic got into a confrontation with an Indiana Pacers fan on Saturday night that resulted in the Portland Trail Blazers star being fined, and we now know what exactly went down that lead up to Nurkic throwing a fan’s phone.
Nurkic was fined $40,000 on Tuesday for grabbing a Pacers fan’s cell phone and tossing it aside following Portland’s blowout loss in Indiana.
The video of the altercation did not show what happened that made Nurkic so angry. You can watch the video below:

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, the fan made derogatory comments about Nurkic’s family.
The fan reportedly shouted “your mom is trash” at Nurkic and also called the star center’s grandmother a “b–ch.” Just for some reference, Nurkic’s grandmother died from COVID-19 in 2020.

This is why you don’t talk trash about people’s family. You really never know what’s going to set someone off, but a family chirp usually does the trick.
