La La Vazquez became distressed during a heated playoff game, after being verbally attacked by some opposing fans, who were using racial slurs, calling her child crude names and throwing ice cubes. She sent her son home early and was preparing to leave herself when she was physically pushed. Although shaken, she left the premises on her own will and is happy to be at home with her fiancée and child.
“Obviously the play-off games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable,” states LaLa. “The fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn’t show the abuse that was taking place.”
Kenyon Martin’s words for Cuban…“faggot motherfucker”…*dead*
Who was that crazy lady who got ejected from the Mavericks/Nuggets game last night? Why, that was just La La Vazquez, Denver Nugget fan and entertainer extraordinaire!
Ms. Vazquez, or just “La La” if you’re hip enough, has had a distinguished career as a DJ, reality TV host, and playing herself in any In basketball circles, she is also known as the fiancee of Mr. Carmelo Anthony, an engagement running over four years now. Anyway, she was asked to leave her courtside seat in Dallas last night after an unspecified “incident” with a couple of old white ladies sitting behind her.
It seems that things at the American Airlines Center were actually much uglier than we realized last night. In addition to Vazquez, Maverick fans got into shouting matches with Kenyon Martin’s mom (there was even a report that someone threw a beer on her) and Martin’s girlfriend, Trina. Martin himself was distracted by the incidents during the game and a Denver assistant actually went into the stands during the game to check on their own fans.
Asked if the game was hostile, [Coach George] Karl said: “I would probably use an uglier word than hostile. I don’t think (the fans) were very classy.”
