On today’s episode of “NBA Fans Gone Wild” — some idiot rushed the court during the Wizards vs. Sixers game on Monday … and not only did he get wrecked by security, the guy is now BANNED from the arena.
It all went down late in the third quarter of Game 4 of the first round playoff series … when the fan sprinted from the stands and onto the court — flailing his arms and tapping the backboard before getting leveled by Capital One Arena security with a Ray Lewis-type hit.
Naturally, the players and coaches were pissed — Sixers center Dwight Howard even walked over to the detained fan and stared down as he squirmed on the court.
The Wizards released a statement on the incident … saying, “During this evening’s game, a fan was apprehended by Capital One Arena Special Police after attempting to breach the court.”
“He will be banned from the arena and charges are being pursued with DC MPD.”
The NBA has had a serious issue with disrespectful fans over the past week — from a spectator spitting on Trae Young to Kyrie Irving getting a bottle thrown at him to Russell Westbrook getting doused in popcorn … and, unfortunately, several more incidents.
The fan from the Wizards/Sixers game has not been identified … but we’ll keep you posted.
Oh, and FWIW — Washington avoided elimination with a 122-114 win.
