As he was leaving the floor after his team’s loss to the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night, Grant Hill claims that a fan spit and cursed at him.

“He said some profanity and spit in my direction,” Hill told the Arizona Republic. “I’m not going to let somebody spit at me. He knew he did wrong because he took off running.”

Hill was held back by United Center security, who the newspaper claims also caught the fan.

“I just saw the anger in his face,” Hill’s teammate Vince Carter told the newspaper. “When you see Grant like that, you know something’s up. Grant doesn’t say anything to anybody. He competes and does his job.”
