NBA referees are cracking down on fans who come to games strictly to be abusive to players. As a way to avoid what happened several years ago in Detroit refs began handing out “Red Cards” to fans at games.
A Reddit user posted a photo of a card they received for their behavior at a game. The card reads that their words, or actions had been abusive to players, officials, or spectators, and it’s a one-time warning. If the card holder is found violating the NBA Fan Code of Conduct again then they would be ejected from the game.
Don’t be the the first fan of your team to get one of these.
