Sure this has been said but OSU radio said immediately after the incident that Smart told the OSU coaches that the fan said THE word

Radio analyst John Holcomb confirms what he said on air: He heard Marcus Smart say the fan called him the n-word.

We will have to see if other people back up his claim, but if this is true, I believe the fan Jeff Orr who has a history of inappropriate behavior should be banned forever. I also do not believe Smart should be suspended, unless they think it is ok for fans to call players niggers.
Before anything else, Marcus Smart is a human and if he was called a racial slur, he should be forgiven for losing his cool.
*Thank you to BlackSportsOnline for this information.
Here is the same fan previously acting a fool:
This kid shoved the fan after being called the “n” word, and all most media outlets are focusing on is the shove. And the racism from white people online is horrendous.
Fat mother fucker should have got knocked out.
