Carmelo Anthony furious at several Sixers fans who “crossed the yellow line” | NBA

With the Lakers largely trailing on the Sixers’ floor, play was halted for several minutes as Carmelo Anthony warmed up with a group of fans in the front rows of the field.

The winger explains that the supporter who provoked his anger called him “boy”, a racist term.

“Some things have been said”, explained Carmelo Anthony afterwards. ” This is unacceptable. I don’t mind the fans sleeping around, trashtalking, cheering for their team or booing the other team, I’m okay with that. But when you cross certain yellow lines, as a man, you’re going to get those kinds of reactions. That’s what you’re going to get, as you seen tonight. “

If he expelled the first fan, who could be banned from the room in the future, Carmelo Anthony then took the lead with another supporter. This time it was Joel Embiid who stepped in.

“I was just trying to calm the situation because they were answering each other again and again, and I really wanted to go home and finish the game”explained the center of Philadelphia. “So, yes, I wanted to calm the situation down so that we could play and move on”.

It’s not the first time that Philadelphia fans have crossed the “yellow line” and Russell Westbrook is well placed to know it, he who received a shower of popcorn at the Wells Fargo Center last year.

On the side of the Lakers, we therefore hope that the penalties will be there.

“Unacceptable language and unacceptable behavior from fans is the simplest way to put it”replied Frank Vogel, coach of the Lakers, when asked about the event. “There must be higher standards. And I hope it will be handled in the right way. “
