For liability reasons the NBA must have a zero tolerance rule re: players going into the stands. If they didn't and a fan was injured by a player, the nba could be considered more negligent, and be on the hook for millions. In today's out-of-control litigation environment, this litigious Axelrod slime-bag figures the scratches to his skin and the emotional "pain and suffering" could net him tens or even hundreds of thousands in settlement money.Any time a player enters the stands misguided fans are standing by ready to cash in on the lawsuit lottery. Our country is run by greedy trial lawyers who thru their advertising have to many off us trained to call them for almost for anything resembling misfortune, even if we are primarily responsible for it.
