Let’s cut right to to the story, according to NBC Bay Area Masai Ujiri allegedly punched a sheriff in the face:
“(NBC Bay Area) – A sheriff’s deputy was allegedly pushed and struck in the face by a Toronto Raptors executive who was trying to make his way to the court after Game 6 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena Thursday, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said.
The incident occurred moments after the Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors to give Canada its first-ever NBA championship. Sheriff’s officials said the deputy denied the executive access to the court because he didn’t have proper credentials.
Witnesses on the scene tell NBC Bay Area the Raptors executive involved in the altercation is Masai Ujiri, the team’s president of basketball operations and former general manager
Deputies are calling the incident a misdemeanor battery on an officer and they, along with the Oakland Police Department, are investigating the matter.
The executive is not in custody, but officers plan to hand the case to the district attorney, officials said.”
Masai wants all the smoke

Honestly, not to make light out of a situation that could result in the district attorney trying to file charges, but let’s make light out of it. In know way should you punch a cop in the face, but; how the hell did The Raptors GM not have any credentials to go down to the court, how was the deputy officer not instructed who Masai was? And lastly is Masai just a big jerk? I mean instead of probably explaining who he was, he felt like a punch in the face was the right move? At the end of the day, I’ve said this whole finals I don’t like this Raptors team. First of all, they are in Canada and that’s not cool. Second, they cheered Kevin Durant’s injury, and now Masai is punching officers in the United States. Maybe Trump is building the wall on the wrong side. Obviously, I’m joking about the Canada thing. But man, I’m salty The Raptors won this thing. Congrats to them and Masai and hope he doesn’t catch a case.
