10. Lin Maniac
Jeremy Lin was a phenomenon when he broke through with the New York Knicks. Lin-Mania was a real thing but it didn’t enthuse everybody. One NBA fan described how he endured a horrible experience at TD Garden. The Boston Celtics played the Knicks in a game where Lin received less love than usual. The fan, who was Asian-American, said that one grizzled Celtics supporter spewed racial abuse toward Lin.
He also spent the entire game swigging from a hip flask he snuck into the arena. Overall, his behavior toward Lin was unforgivable. The kicker in this story was the fact that it was an Asian-American night in Boston. However, to the horror of fans around him, this old man let the crowd down. It’s a shame that one person can tarnish the experience of others like this.
