@KingJames am I the only one who heard this guy in the crowd yell “hey Jamaican dog they want their bobsledder back! Hey @Patty_Mills Jamaica just called, they want their bobsledder back!” 😳😠🙅🏾♀️ #SundayFunday ??? @NBA pic.twitter.com/RvHdu88Gzd— Zandra Ashley (@thats_Z_Truth) February 25, 2018
Thanks @thats_Z_Truth. I am a proud Islander. Like my Jamaican Brothers, me & my family in the islands of the Torres Strait have experienced racial slurs for decades. Hope your efforts will enlighten this confused, hateful fan. #BlackHistoryMonth https://t.co/yH3nKlGv4A— Patrick Mills (@Patty_Mills) February 26, 2018
As a die hard #Cavs fan, this is totally inexcusable. That fan should be banned from the arena for life!! I'm not a #Spurs fan, but as an individual player, Patty Mills has always been a class act & has conducted himself that way. The #Spurs run an impeccable organization.— Chester Johnson jr.

Here’s a thing about @Patty_Mills ... we had traveled all the way from Tasmania recently to see him play. He gave us a wave and the first thing the security guy said standing next to us: we love Patty in this city, most generous, lovely guy. You Aussies should be proud of him.— David Bartlett (@Bartlett_DJ) February 26, 2018
You are a true champion Patty and do your culture proud. I am sure many of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island kids look up to you. Keep Strong 🇦🇺💪— Kezzac (@kazbah19) February 26, 2018
