People were less sensitive back then, they didn't act like every screw-up by an athlete was another nail in society's coffin.

I see, today's NBA just stinks. By the way Stern not being the commissioner in 1981 probably had a lot to do with it-lol

Vernon Maxwell slugs Portland heckler (Houston Rockets at Portland, 1995)
With the Rockets on the way to a 120-82 loss, Maxwell lost his cool and plunged 12 rows deep to punch a fan who had been heckling him. "If I had been there, I'd have probably cold-cocked him, too," said Maxwell's lawyer. "You can't think of anything more vulgar, more fighting words, than what this guy said to Vernon." Maxwell got a 10-game suspension and $20,000 fine from the NBA.
