On Friday, Boston Celtics center Tristan Thompson revealed that he has had it with unruly fans and threatened to follow those who spit at players “right to their houses” to confront them.
Thompson’s comment came after a fan was banned from New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Wednesday for spitting at Atlanta Hawks player Trae Young.
On Friday, the Athletic’s Jared Weiss posted a snippet of Thompson’s comments demanding that unruly fans face a “criminal fine.”
“There probably also should be a criminal fine because if you spit on someone on the street, don’t you get fined and arrested or some shit like that?” Thompson reportedly said.
“If you spit on someone in the arena and you can’t spit on people in the streets, it should be the same protocol. I dare a mother f**ker to spit on me. I’ll follow you right to your house,” Thompson
