Rockets: 4 questions regarding Sterling Brown’s horrific assault
3. Why weren’t there more people with Brown?
One of the first questions that came to mind after the news of the assault on Brown was simply why were there not more people around him? Reports are that Brown was with another individual, who was unnamed.
Even if that’s the case, why wasn’t he with more people? It’s safe to assume that the person he was with wasn’t a part of the team, as it would have almost certainly been reported by now.
So why wasn’t he out with his Houston Rockets teammates? This would possibly have made more sense if Brown was in his hometown and was accompanied by friends and family members, but in a situation where Brown was on the road visiting a city that he’s not as familiar with, it’s hard to understand why he would have been out to himself.
Not to mention the fact that it would have been much safer for a professional athlete like Brown to have been with a larger crowd. Especially considering the fact that Brown would be fairly easy to point out, as he’s a 6-foot-5 NBA player who has made over $5 million since joining the league.
Brown would have been armored with much more protection and such an incident would have been much less likely to occur if he had a crew of others with him.
