Now we have the "drama" of one of the owners of the Warriors wives talking to Jay-Z, past Beyonce, and the press has jumped all over it to make it look like the woman was "talking past" Beyonce.

The fact is, there are times where the person sitting next to you doesn't want to talk to you, or thinks they are better than you, so they ignore you. If the person next to them is worth talking to, you just talk past the person in the middle and allow them to sit there like a lump.

It's a shame that everything happening on the sidelines is becoming more important than the game itself. Who the hell cares if the woman and Beyonce don't talk to each other? I sure the hell don't, and I can guarantee you that it's not more important than the game itself.

Beyonce is overrated let her neurotic idiot fan base get all upset because they think their God got insulted. You could line up 5 women and I could not pick Beyonce out of the lineup that's how little I care about her music.

This is a microcosm of how idiots react via social media. I am not blaming the press because its not even a story if social media does not get in a uproar. Go look at some posts on Facebook, its a mosh pit of you can't fix stupid. But Jay Z and Beyonce make headlines (clicks), its the world we live in. The Lowry push was a much bigger story and that needed more attention IMO

That said in a social of public setting I try not to talk "over" a person, never want to infringe on someones space

Though if venue is loud her leaning over to say something to him for him to hear makes more sense then screaming at him.

this story is a lot about nothing if social media would have kept out of it and if some idiot does not make a death threat. If all the parties know each other as they clearly did WTF it the problem, my point was I try not to infringe on someones space if I don't know them.....if I know them its different.

Don't really follow B-ball but I couldn't believe the Lowry thing. In no other sport are players subject to touching or other infringements on their personal space and safety like they are in b-ball. At some point they're going to have to start sitting people behind a barrier of some kind.

Before social media latches on to anything, it has to be presented by the media for them to see. There was absolutely no need for the cameras at a basketball game to concentrate on "sideline celebrities" at a basketball game, thereby creating this story with Beyonce.

It was presented on a silver platter for social media to have at it in any way they wanted, so I still believe the onus of what happened was on them, the fallout the result of social media. Pretty simple seeing that.

That happens in any sport college or pro. They showed celebs chatting and social media took it out of context and made their own conclusions. It was a 5 second look that’s it. No different than showing Rodgers at a Bucks game or Maholmes at the Blues playoff game. Happens frequently and camera time is maybe 5 or 10 seconds and never takes from game action NBA is especially vulnerable since courtside seats are in camera view all the time. My big bitch is that this is getting more discussion than the Lowry incident and that 100% needs to be addressed. Happened a few years ago to Marcus Smart now this.

To me that GS exc is going to be fired as he deserves to be a fan would be barred from going to any more of that teams games. So him being a team employee he should be held to a even higher standard and him putting hands on a player there is no excuse for that and he should be fired.
