Sacramento Kings forward Omri Casspi is the NBA’s only ever player from Israel. He is also Jewish. There are even rumors that Capri once served as a sniper in the Israeli army. Simply by being from Israel makes Casspi a target for hate. In fact, Wednesday it made him the target of a possible hate crime.

The CBS television affiliate in Sacramento carried the story that a mural of Casspi was defaced by some idiot who marked it with a swastika. The vandalizing of the mural is being investigated by police as a possible hate crime.
