 Recent NBA player-fan incidents show league has work to do


Over the decades, the NBA has thrived by wrapping fans and superstars in tight spaces, creating the best gaming atmosphere in any pro sports league. It’s good business to have fans of a stone’s throw at superstars — you know, as long as they never rock.

No one has stoned yet. But in the past two weeks, four future Hall of Famers have complained publicly about fan behavior. Kyrie Irving (in Boston) and Draymond Green (in Memphis) each gives fans a double-bird. Joel Embiid fired back at Toronto fans. Then, this past week, Chris Paul said Dallas fans were harassing and in contact with his family. Paul was understandably angry.
