ABC15 in Arizona did a report on the fan reaction to the Phoenix Suns protesting the new anti-immigration bill SB 1070.

There were people who felt that the immigration bill is "totally wrong. They need all the support they can get on this issue."

However, there was the Joe Arpaio hero worship on full display too.

Signs of "Joe is my Hero," were visible and someone defaced Steve Nash's poster. Other fans were pissed off at this.

Fan: "I think it's just wrong to deface somebody that's a big figure in our community."

--

Reporter: "Now that sticker has been removed from Steve Nash's forehead against that wall that we showed you earlier."

You would think that more people would have been upset by Nash's courageous stance against SB 1070, but they weren't at all. They all did had have one thing in common though: Beat the Spurs.

Can you help us out?
