Days after NBA Commissioner David Stern fined the San Antonio Spurs $250K for ‘sitting their players’, a photo on Reddit.com is making the rounds…and not in a good way.
The image-allegedly taken around Halloween this year- shows Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, both in costume, pointing toy guns at the head of a man dressed as NBA referee Joey Crawford, with a noose hanging overhead.
How this escaped becoming media-fodder is beyond us, but according to most threads on reddit, fans are not happy about it.
We’re still stuck on the noose. The words ‘NBA player’ and ‘noose’ should never be heard together, let alone be immortalized in a photo. And the irony? Yesterday was the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery.
