Blazer fan throws projectile, hits Mark Cuban with it

Come on Portland, this is why we love Mark Cuban.

You want another faceless owner who sits in a luxury box with his friends and views the team as an investment? We need passionate, committed owners. Ones willing to sit with the fans and tell them what is on their mind.

Cuban was sitting near courtside at the Rose Garden and during the fourth quarter got into a little verbal sparing match with some Blazers fans in his section. Then some idiot threw a projectile that hit Cuban, reports ESPNDallas.

“I don’t know what it was, but something hit me in the face,” said Cuban, who encouraged fans to boo him more by putting his hand by his ear.

Rose Garden officials put some extra security in the area and that was the end of it.

But come on idiot Portland fan (and we’re talking to the one that threw something, not the lot of you). It’s a game and Cuban’s a fun owner. Don’t be an idiot.

    There is a fine line between being a passionate owner and being a bit of a jock strap chasing d-bag. I’m not condoning chucking things at him (come on Portland, we’re better than that!), but I’m not surprised either. Seriously, egging on 20,000+ fans and you think not one of them will react in a poor way?

    Not to mention he was out on the floor during warm-ups shooting with the team. He knows he isn’t actually playing in the game, right? Maybe he should let the team warm up a bit more?

    I hate hate hate Cuban, but love what he does for the game. Heckle him mercilessly, and quit throwing sh**.

    Cubans an idiot, but he’s a funny idiot, you can’t help but like the guy. The first commenter is probably a kings fan and is jealous that the mavericks have an owner who is on the same level as the fans and knows how to run a team.

    Dude, Paul Allen sits courtside every last Blazers game unless he’s off in his submarine or buying Montana. He’s not faceless, just prefers to let his players and coaches and General Manager handle their business like the professionals they are.

    Cuban yelling at refs, opposing players and now fans is not only boorish but bad for business. Do you really think the refs aren’t human, don’t hear what he’s yelling and aren’t affected by it?

    Nice to be passionate, but if he really wants to affect the game he should suit up, or shut up.

    I would eat Cuban’s poop.

    If it was anything serious he would have known what it was. Cuban was hit by a spit wad after egging on the crowd for 3 quarters. Someone call a whambulance.
