NBA had to stop this type of stuff. It would only escalate, and someone would take it too far eventually.

I don't think it's a great from an entertainment standpoint either. I don't want to hear random sound bites after every other play. I'm there for the professional basketball game, not the DJ.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but there are already rules against the home DJ playing music or sound when the opposing team is on offense.

ryguy613 wrote:yeah, you can call me a grumpy old man (Im sure most of you will) but to me this kind of stuff just shows the overall decline of the nba. Professionalism is becoming an endangered creature. Trolling has become pervasive in all aspects of the game, and more and more it is becoming the primary method for communication, whether its in the national media, local broadcasts, arenas, or the players themselves. The NBA is essentially becoming an extension of NBA Twitter instead of NBA Twitter being an extension of the NBA.

Russ's attitude to the media and attention seeking in general could suggest that he has brought this on himself. But you are right, there may be a line being crossed here

Was anyone even insulted by that though?

That's incredibly dumb...

What's the point of home court advantage then?
No travel, getting to sleep on your own bed, fans cheering for you, familiar gym, more pressure on refs, and being able to do many other things, just not that :wink:

If you see him as just an entertainer like a WWE wrestler no problem, he is certainly a very well compensated entertainer, which is why old players past their best hang on as long as they can I guess.

As someone who argued extensively on here that Durant was right to look for a PG who suited him better than Westbrook I am sad to see it come to this when I consider what an athletic marvel and star player prime Westbrook was. I guess there are others like him though, and such players unfortunately for the Lakers seem to have a tendency to gravitate to the Lakers. Carmelo and Dwight were once also iconic players.

This is why having fundamentals is important. Westbrick was all athleticism no skill and now you're seeing what he is without his elite athleticism.

Kings have done this type of thing to a visiting team before:

https://www.espn.com/nba/news/story?id=2224062

The Sacramento Kings were fined $30,000 by the
NBA on Monday for showing derogatory images of Detroit on video
screens prior to their home opener against the Pistons.

When the Pistons were introduced Nov. 8, the Arco Arena
scoreboard flashed pictures of abandoned buildings, burned-out
cars, piles of rubble and other negative images of Detroit
. The
Pistons won the game 102-88.

What?? why would the NBA not allow this to continue?? it's hilarious, it's entertaining, for players it's part of the experience when you play in a hostile arena with opposing fans.... i don't get why they would disallow this




The league had to stop this fast. Can you imagine they'd done this to Booker? He'd demand DJ was escorted from building. :nod:
