Philadelphia 76ers power forward Mike Scott got into a fight with Philadelphia Eagles fans on Sunday. The Sixers guard is a fan of the Washington Redskins and was at the Eagles game wearing a Redskins jersey.

According to Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice, racial slurs were directed at Scott and that's why he got so angry and eventually got into a fight.

Though some fans in the area initially engaged in the sort of accepted hostility you expect between division rivals — “Fck the Redskins!” and “Fck 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.

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 re-signed with the Sixers this summer on a two-year deal worth $9.8 million. The Sixers acquired Scott from the Los Angeles Clippers in the Tobias Harris deal.

In 27 games with the Sixers last season, Scott averaged 7.8 points while shooting 40.0 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from beyond the arc.
