Marcus Smart Suspended Three Games for Shoving Fan

Although the college basketball star apologized, he initially accused Jeff Orr -- the man he pushed -- of calling him a racial slur

Marcus Smart will sit three games as punishment for his shoving a Texas Tech fan last night in Lubbock. The Red Raiders athletic department released the above video, alongside a statement from "superfan" Jeff Orr in which he claims he only called Smart "a piece of crap."

That statement is in considerable disagreement with what Smart allegedly claimed courtside as well as what the Internet decided Orr said. The video, meanwhile, is next to useless and is clearly there as some kind of GoPro sponsorship deal (Texas Tech is clear to mention it's GoPro footage in multiple places.)

It does sound like somebody says "piece of crap" at some point, but since you can't see anything the video's relevance to the audio is impossible to verify.
