After the Miami Heat'swin over the Hornets Wednesday, Goran Dragic walked back to the tunnel where he was greeted by a "fan." This person from the crowd yelled down to Dragic, "Go back to Russia!" to which Dragic responded, "I'm not from Russia."

DragicisSlovenian, by the way.
The comment happened Wednesday night, but video of the moment didn't surface until Friday morning. According to a Reddit user who uploaded the video, he attended the game with the fan who yelled out the phrase and claimed he knew Dragic was not from Russia.
The user claims the person was just trying to get in a creative heckle. Considering he got Dragic's attention, I think it's safe to say he succeeded.
