Chris Paul calls out NBA, Mavericks fans for putting hands on his mom, wife

Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns

Suns guard Chris Paul angrily tweeted about Mavericks fans putting hands on his mother and wife, calling out the NBA for not doing anything about it.

Mother’s Day is supposed to be a celebration. For Chris Paul and his family attending the Suns playoff game against the Mavericks on Sunday, it was anything but.

After Phoenix fell 111-101, Paul took to Twitter to reveal that Mavericks fans mistreated his mom and wife during the game.

“Wanna fine players for saying stuff to the fans but the fans can put they hands on our families….f*** that!!” Paul tweeted.

Mavericks fans allegedly put hands on Chris Paul’s mom and wife

Dave McMenamin of ESPN reported that “Paul’s mother had hands put on her by Dallas fans and Paul’s wife was also pushed.

Paul’s kids were present and witnessed the whole thing, feeling “unsafe” during the exchange.

During the game, camera caught Paul looking heated. Talking to an apparent law enforcement officer, the guard appeared to say, “he put his hands on my mom, he put his hands on my mom.”

The Mavericks released a statement acknowledging the incident and the removal of the fan in question.

“The Dallas Mavericks are aware of an incident between a fan and the family of Chris Paul. It was unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated. The Mavericks, along with American Airlines Center, swiftly removed the fan from today’s game,” the statement said.

Dallas could take further action against the fan but that will have to be determined down the line. For now, it’s a shame an NBA Playoff game was marred by such unacceptable fan behavior. Whether a fan is interacting with another fan or a player’s mother, there is no room for physical altercations at a sporting event.
