One of the Eagles fans who was involved in the Eagles tailgate fight with Sixers forward Mike Scott called into The Mike Missanelli Show on 97.5 The Fanatic on Tuesday afternoon, and things got wild. The man, who is currently known as “Microphone Guy” for his role in the social media videos of the incident, confirmed that someone at the tailgate directed a racial slur at Scott.
Mic Guy: As he’s walking through the lot, again, everybody on the sidewalk, in 50 feet of us, left or right, we had no idea who he was. We say, ‘Alright, here comes another Redskins fan. Here comes a Redskins fan.’ And we all just start in on him. Nobody knew he was an NBA player. The minute we found out he was an NBA player, you wanna talk about hearts sunk. Grown men with tears in their eyes.
Mike Miss: Alright, you guys use any kinds of racial slurs towards him? Mic Guy: It’s been coming out that it has. There’s a lot of us there. I wanna say no, but I would probably be justified in saying someone did, yes.
Pursuant with team policy on player attendance of public events, Scott was accompanied to the game by a member of the Sixers’ security team and was on the way to the aforementioned tailgate when he spotted a coffin surrounded by Redskins paraphernalia on it. A source close to the situation says Scott thought it was a funny thing to see at a tailgate, and approached the area in an attempt to get a picture in front of it.
Upon approaching the area with the coffin — which prominently displayed a “Party Like It’s 1991” shirt, a reference to the last time (1991-92) Washington won the Super Bowl — eyewitnesses say Scott was greeted with hostility by the group tailgating in that area. They did not recognize Scott as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers and instead appeared to view him simply as a large man in opposing colors attempting to start trouble at an Eagles tailgate.
Though some fans in the area initially engaged in the sort of accepted hostility you expect between division rivals — “F*ck the Redskins!” and “F*ck you!” were among the insults directed his way — witnesses say tailgaters who escalated the situation directed racial slurs, specifically the n-word, in Scott’s direction in the area by the coffin. The majority of witnesses who spoke to PhillyVoice painted it as the cause of the fight that was later captured on video, though a smaller group claimed not to have heard them until the shoving eventually broke out.
A team spokesman told PhillyVoice that based on their review of the available evidence, the Sixers are not treating this matter as a disciplinary incident at this time, and they will not punish Scott for his involvement absent a new development.
PhillyVoice conducted discussions with roughly a dozen people, reviewed photo and video evidence, and spoke with team personnel regarding Scott’s dust-up at the Eagles’ home opener against the Washington Redskins. All accounts painted the incident as unfortunate and avoidable, but nevertheless a noteworthy part of opening day.

There was, however, universal agreement that slurs were used during the incident, and multiple eyewitnesses in the area at the time say they continued to hear racially insensitive language after the incident had been broken up and Scott had moved on to go about his day.
New footage of that insane brawl involving Philadelphia 76ers player Mike Scott and a bunch of Eagles fans shows the 6’8″ baller throwing wild HAYMAKERS … and the video is crystal clear. 31-year-old Scott — a Virginia native and big-time Redskins fan — got into an all-out brawl with Eagles fans Sunday before the game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly.
Mike Scott may now play for the Philadelphia 76ers, but the 31-year-old forward hasn’t forgotten his Virginia roots, defending his Washington Redskins before the team’s game against the Eagles on Sunday. Scott was seen tailgating at the Eagles game while donning a Redskins’ Sean Taylor jersey and getting into a scuffle with Eagles fans before the game. It is still unclear from the video how the altercation began.
The ninja-style headbands gained tons of popularity in the NBA’s on-court fashion trends last season. However, fans won’t be seeing them anymore in the upcoming season as Nike and the league have reportedly banned it. Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott confirmed the development when fans asked on Twitter if he will sport the ninja-style headbands once again. Scott isn’t too happy with the decision as well and told fans to start a petition.
“I know my role coming into this year, so I will be a lot better and more comfortable, and you guys will be able to see ‘Ennis the Menace’ this year,” he said. Ennis, who, along with Mike Scott, was a key player off the bench in the playoffs, defined his role this way: “Hard-nosed player. Knock down shots. Guard anybody.”
Zach Gelb: . @mikescott of the @sixers says @JimmyButler is his boy & is just like him besides the country music but he will probably foul the s*** out of Jimmy when the #Sixers play the #Heat. Mike says Philly fans better boo the s*** out of Jimmy. https://omny.fm/shows/the-zach-gelb-show/8-23-19-the-zach-gelb-show-mike-scott-76ers-pf @CBSSportsRadio

“You know man, he’s just a regular dude,” says Jarrett Jack, who’s been close to Lou for the past 15 years. “One thing that I love about him—he seems like that regular dude that’s just from the neighborhood. Through and through, he’s still a ‘Let me get a 10-piece wings’ guy.” “He’s your favorite player’s favorite player,” adds Mike Scott, a friend of Lou’s since they were first teammates on the Hawks. “Lou is like an uncle. He’s just cool with everybody and everybody respects him. He’s like an old soul, man. He looks young, but Lou is really, like, 60.” “He’s Uncle Lou,” says Jordan Clarkson, who played with Williams on the Lakers. “He’s on his own wave, he’s on his own vibe. He’s going to do what he wants to do. I think that’s why people look at him and respect him for who he is.”
Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott spent the first five years of his NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks, and Saturday night he returned to Atlanta to get in some run. Scott played in the Atlanta Entertainment Basketball League Pro Am, and he showed off his jumper and more in a dazzling performance. Scott scored 58 points, getting buckets in any way possible.
“Mike epitomizes what Philadelphia loves – a fierce competitor with a tireless work ethic, who’s driven by the desire to win,” said Brand. “His toughness, grit and passion are palpable, as the city of Philadelphia has come to know. We are thrilled to have Mike back with the 76ers.”
Shams Charania: Sources: Free agent Mike Scott has agreed to a two-year, $9.8M deal to return to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Kyle Neuback: Mike Scott says he spoke with Brand and Brown and told them he would like to be back playing under Brown again next season, but will obviously depend on business, etc. Says coming to Philly gave him a jolt, felt like he was “ass” in L.A.

What was a wildly entertaining game between the Warriors and 76ers — one ultimately won by Golden State 120-117 — instead will be remembered for two head-scratching decisions by Philadelphia inside the final minute. Both of them — an intentional foul by 76ers forward Mike Scott and an intentionally missed free throw by 76ers guard Ben Simmons — kept Philadelphia from ever getting off a potential tying shot. “There’s so much situation stuff that we just really haven’t had the chance to go through with our new guys,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “Whether you need a 3 on a sideline, whether you’re trying to miss a free throw and position people around, whether you want a foul or don’t-you-foul type stuff, even though these guys are great players, have been around the league a long time, every coaching staff is sort of different.
The L.A. Clippers have acquired forward Wilson Chandler, center Mike Muscala, guard Landry Shamet, two first round draft picks and two second round draft picks from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for forward Tobias Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations Lawrence Frank.
“We are excited to welcome Wilson, Mike, and Landry to the L.A. Clippers. Wilson is a veteran player we have long respected for his toughness, versatility and leadership. His hard-nosed mentality will fit right in with the rest of this group,” said Frank. “Mike is a versatile big man who has the ability to shoot the ball and space the floor.”
Frank continued, “We have also admired Landry, a first round pick from Wichita State, since last year’s draft process. He has only justified expectations. Landry quickly earned a spot in the 76ers rotation and has been the most accurate three-point shooter in this year’s rookie class. In addition to Wilson, Mike, and Landry, we obtained multiple draft assets today that will be important building blocks as we continue to carry out our long-term plan — to construct a sustainable championship contender.”
“We are in the unique position to contend now and we think this trade positions us well for the postseason,” 76ers General Manager Elton Brand said. “Tobias is one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA and possesses an innate ability to impact the game on both ends of the floor, while Boban and Mike provide valuable skillsets, size and depth to our team. All three players bring high character to our locker room and we are excited about their fit alongside Joel, Ben, Jimmy and our entire roster.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Clippers and Sixers have agreed to trade Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, Mike Scott for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, 2020 first-rounder, 2021 unprotected 1st via Miami and two second rounders.
Jovan Buha: The Clippers list Lou Williams as questionable and Danilo Gallinari as doubtful for tomorrow’s game against the Spurs. Gotta think the team goes with Tyrone Wallace or Mike Scott to start (assuming Gallo doesn’t play).
Mike Scott may need to take a few days to gauge the market, and how much teams are willing to spend for a stretch-four who can get hot for stretches but still needs to improve defensively. Nevertheless, the Wizards like Scott and view him as a top target.
The Wizards are interested in retaining Scott this summer but are currently not set up to have much money to play with in free agency. They are in the luxury tax with three max contracts and others set to earn big money in 2018-19 like Ian Mahinmi and Marcin Gortat. They would likely need to use a salary cap exception to bring him back. Washington is also expected to make significant changes to their bench like they have in recent years. Though Scott was a bright spot, they could use their available resources to go in a different direction, perhaps to value defense over Scott’s scoring ability. There is also the draft in June that will affect their free agency priorities, depending on what type of player they bring in.
Scott didn’t flat-out say he wanted to remain with the Wizards during his media exit interview last weekend, but he did speak highly of the organization. He also mentioned how it was nice to play just a two-hour drive away from where he grew up. Scott’s father and friends would often make the trip to Washington see him play. There is comfort for him in D.C. and that is a good selling point. “It’s a brotherhood, whether you guys believe it or not. We’re all close. I’m close with everybody, I’m cool with everybody. Love this team, love this organization and the coaching staff,” he said.
Candace Buckner: Scott Brooks on possible starting unit change: “We need a better start, Whether we make a change or not.” Brooks did not commit nor repeat a strong hint of starting Mike Scott as he did on Tuesday.
Candace Buckner: Mike Scott in the #Wizards starting lineup to replace Marcin Gortat? Scott Brooks hinted at it and Scott is ready for it. “At this point, whatever he wants to do. Whatever it takes for the team to win.”
Candace Buckner: Porter went through some of practice and still listed of day to day. Scott still in NBA protocol and has to finish that before going through next step. Both are listed as questionable for Game 1.

Candace Buckner: It’s a hard day to be a U. of Virginia backer — especially a former player like #Wizards F Mike Scott. Bradley Beal joked the team held a moment of silence for Scott ahead of shootaround. “He took a tough one… I feel bad for him. He was on suicide watch last nite.”
With the Wizards taking care of business in Orlando, all eyes are turning towards Super Bowl Sunday. That’s especially true for Wizards assistant Jeff Bangs, who is a life-long Philadelphia Eagles fan. Tomorrow, Bangs will get the opportunity of a lifetime: seeing his favorite team play in the Super Bowl, from the Super Bowl. Bangs is going thanks to Mike Scott, who paid for the ticket itself.

Chase Hughes: Mike Scott on laughing after his leg-up runner to beat the shot clock: ‘That was [because] DeMarcus Cousins said my iso was weak… I wanted that shot real bad. I just laughed at him when I made it.’
Candace Buckner: #Wizards F Mike Scott, who didn’t play last game in Miami, didn’t sweat his DNP. Believes maybe matchups played a part in Scott Brooks’s decision. “That’s how the game goes. I’m a professional. I’m always ready to play. We won.”
