Clippers guard Patrick Beverley returns to the site of his ejection against the Mavericks in early December when Los Angeles takes on Dallas at the American Airlines Center tonight (7:30 pm tipoff)
Only this time, he will not
According to ESPN, the Mavericks have ban Don Knobler from the arena for the remainder of the season after an investigation into the encounter confirmed by Beverley's account of the exchange. Fans complained that Knobler, known for his flamboyant wardrobe, inappropriately heckled opposing players on other occasions as well, ESPN reported
The incident happened with 9:10 remaining in the fourth quarter of a 114-1
"I told the referee, I told security," Beverley told media members after that game. "I've never been ejected from a game since I've been in the NBA." I play hard, I play in the rules, of course, but I'm a grown man, and I have morals, I can accept [derogatory remarks aimed at me]
"I've never heard [bleep] your mother. Never. And there's only so much you can stand for. When you bring family into it. There's just so much you can tolerate as a man. "
