09:22 AM ET 03.09 | Former Portland Trail Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez was attacked by a fan following a Euroleague game between Real Madrid and Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania. Euroleague has issued an official statement on the incident, which includes plans to investigate further. Fernandez also issued a statement: "I am fine. Thank God things did not go further. I have to say thanks for the support of everyone that has contacted me through social networks and private messages. I am not enjoying this; people have to know that basketball cannot get dirty this way. Things like this don't have to happen again. I think that people should not think that all Lithuanian fans are like that just because of these two people. Not at all..."

In Toronto, they boo their own players if they are underachieving Italian PF's.
