As fans continue to fill up arenas around the country to see their favorite NBA teams battle it out in the playoffs, more and more stories of unruly fans continue to surface. The New York Knicks rookie told reporters on Monday that a fan threw a beer in his and teammate Nerlens Noel’s direction during last Wednesday’s Game 2 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
“Not sure why, not even sure who did it, but it happened,’ Quickley said, per the New York Daily News. “I guess that’s part of having fans in the game.”
Immanuel Quickley said a beer was thrown at him in Game 2 at MSG.

The older I get the more I think Ron Artest wasn't in the wrong with his reactions. People need to stop acting like it's a right rather than a privilege to attend sporting events. Act right and respect everyone 👏👌💯 https://t.co/dlvypohSJ8

You would think it wasn’t a Knicks fan, but you really don’t know, there’s no video evidence this even happened.
Bad behavior has always been a part of having fans at games.
Now some of the bad apples are getting bolder than ever. Only a matter of time before something really bad takes place.
