Heckler banned for season after alleged racial slur
ESPN.com news services

The NBA and the Orlando Magic on Monday banned for the season the fan whose alleged racial slur incited Houston Rockets center Dikembe Mutombo at a preseason game last week.

Season-ticket holder Hooman Hamzehloui allegedly called Mutombo a "monkey" Thursday in the third quarter of the Rockets-Magic game. Mutombo yelled back at Hamzehloui and gestured from the court.

1. You'd think someone named Hooman Hamzehloui would
be loathe to use racial/ethnic slurs. I guess it takes all kinds.

2. Black people are 'low man on the totem pole'
...so it behooves other ethnics and immigrants to show just how 'American' they are by engaging in one of our country's favorite pasttimes....it's a way to show solidarity with white people and to keep THEMSELVES from being discriminated against. Not surprising, really.
