A number of NBA and NFL players were partying at a New York City nightclub when a gunman opened fire, killing an ex-con and injuring two others, according to the New York Daily News.

None of the NFL or NBA players were injured. Among them though were John Wall, Russell Westbrook, Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon and Kemba Walker, as well as five New York Giants -- Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Aaron Ross, Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty. The NBA players were still in New York, presumably after the players' meeting that happened Monday.
The gunman, clad in a white leather jacket, crashed the crowded party at the Juliet Supper Club on W. 21st St. by squeezing off five shots shortly before 2:30 a.m., police said.
[...]

In Tuesday’s bloodshed, the killer is thought to have fired the shots in a bid to get even after a woman was bumped on the dance floor — but her relationship to the gunman was not clear, the sources said.
Also in the club was actress Reese Witherspoon and her former husband Ryan Phillippe. Again, no players were involved or injured. They were just there when some psycho came storming in firing off shots. Which is extremely scary.

Wall, Westbrook in club where shooting happened

I find it amazing that black people are constantly judged by the clothes that they wear. Here we have a horrible set of events that occured in this night club, and yet your response is about saggy pants and timberland boots. It doesn't matter how people wear their clothes the fact is that there are violent and un rational people in this world. Obviously the killer live by a different set of rules than most of the world and he and he alone is responsible for the tradgic event that took place. Noone ever says anything of a white person who wears leather and look like they belong to a biker club, but being black we are constantly scrutinized. I myself don't keep taggs on my clothes or sag my pants, but if I wanted to I don't feel like i should be judge or called an amimal for doing so. Night clubs are a breading ground for violence no matter who attends them. There are fights, and occasionally people do get hurt, and I believe that alcohol plays some role in that. Before we start casting judgement lets think about who the real culprit is, and that the one who took a life in the club, and not a race of black people with sagging pants.

COWBOY72128 I have heard it said that if you are ignorant and keep your mouth shut no one will know just how ignorant you are, but if you open your mouth and stupid spills out you are going to stand out like what you are an ignorant knucklehead.  Comments like let these animals shoot each other will be thought of a really stupid thing to say in this climate of PC.  I'm sure I know why you can only get a position as s server, your mouth is insensitive and stupid, just serve the paying customer and get the order right.

How come there were no white players there?
 
Those guys are all prejudice against white people.
There not player's, but Reese Witherspoon & Ryan Phillipe are white last time I checked.

Funny, so now it's these athletes fault that some punk was going around firing off a gun? You people crack me up. So if I go into a convenience store and some thug comes in there and robs the place, it's my fault?

Like my college coach always said, nothing good happens after 2AM.
Simmons recommended players hire college students or nerdy adults to play Madden and Call of Duty while drinking Mountain Dew at their McMansions to keep them out of trouble.  Probably a good idea.  If that's not good enough, couldn't you get girls to come to you?
Weird to be at a club with your ex-wife.
Royce Young still is a dumb Okie.

Actually B_lake #####    we do pay their salaries...
No, you don't...The owners pay their salaries...You pay the owner to see them...You don't pay the players anything..


nd "clubbin" is another sad aspect of a "look at me" and showy personality trait of specific end of our society that is old tire, worn and ridiculuos.
So are country clubs...car shows...etc.  Your point, please...

 Please see jail and prison stastistics....%'s are just a bit off the chart...it's not a stereotype, it's historical fact...not a coincidence!???  geezuz?!?!


What?


 High school kids and young college kids go "clubbin"...not mature , adult "professionals" &
;nbs
p; of any kind.  
Wow..You're so wrong that I don't think I should even waste my time with you..Clubbin is a way to blow of steam..some professionals play basketball, softball, etc.  Some go to nightclubs or strip clubs...It's what they choose to do..Each person has their own way of handling life and I won't judge a person for handling it in a different way...unlike yourself..

who you with, who i am, what i drive,....grow the f up! 
You seem really jealous of their lifestyle...Like I said, focus on what you can control and be happy that you can control it...
