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.
Storyline: Mike Scott Fight
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.
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. 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.
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.

“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.”

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.

“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.”

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: 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.
