    This is pretty badass how Vernon can hear someone talk crap to him and pin point that guy in an arena of 20,000 people.

    Vernon is a super hero

    NBA used to have hackers follow the players and talk tash to them all game long.

    That's bad ass to see that angle !

    Side note. That's Tim Breux next to him. How was that last name pronounced.... brew or bro.

    It was Bro I believe, although I have heard people mention Ro with a silent B.

    Nah fellas, it's Breaux.

    Tinman, that was ****ing badass to see that. I remember seeing a crappy version of it when it actually happened, but that's clear as day.

    Not sure why Paul Allen, Inside Stuff, and Jerry Seinfeld are in the video.....

    To this day, Paul Allen still wears a bandaid in honor of the fan.

    I love Vernon and his attitude on the court, but he took it way too far. He can claim the guy said something about his dead daughter all he wants, I don't buy it. There was another version of this a couple of years ago where Rudy said: "They do it to me too", in response to heckling. It was a bad night, Rockets got whooped, Vernon was off and he just couldn't take the nonsense the fan was spewing. He should've kept his cool and it's quite odd how nobody on the team made sure Max didn't go into the stands. Not even security stopped him!! That could've turned into the first malice at the palace easily if other fans had gotten involved.

    Vernon shows up this week and looks 20 years younger and a much better citizen than Steve Francis.
    I didn't know that the fan was sitting way the hell up there . That's some super human hearing and the punch was quick.

    Sometimes fans are punks

    Thanks Vernon!

    Don't let Corey spoil other Rocket memories.

    It's BRO, bro.



    And, yeah... nice angle.

    I can't remember ever seeing video of this, just the picture of the guy and max, at this same angle...so this is a new angle, but there was video before, right?

    This is the first time I've ever seen the video.

    It's glorious.

    What part of "kiss my ass m*fk*r" did this Portland idiot not get?

    Just head over to http://keepvid.com/ and put in the URL and download the video and keep it forever.

    Is it just lore or is it true that the guy said something in regards to his still born child which finally set him off and sent him to the stands.
