Video: If you text during a game, you will get hit in the head by a basketball

Apr 19, 2012, 5:28 PM EDT

That’s what happened to this Nets fan sitting courtside, who was bonked in the head by a loose ball while texting. Not only did he have to suffer the physical pain of a basketball to the head, but he ended up getting called out by Marv Albert on-air, which is the ultimate form of shaming. Let this be a lesson to all of us: if you’re sitting courtside, pay attention to the game.

    Actually, I think the ultimate form of shaming from Marv Albert ends with him biting you while he’s wearing white panties and garter belt.

    Why did it look like he cussed his lady friend out though for not telling him! LOL!

    I don’t know whats worse, that guy getting hit in the head or the fact that Marv Albert does NOT call Knicks games on MSG. Thats Mike Breen. Clueless.

      There are so many errors on this site on such basic thing like thiss. I want to like PBT but many times it’s cringeworthy.

        im baffled at how this site is ATLEAST 100 times worse then the football one. There is way less traffic, the appearance is horrid and the people making the stories, like you said, are brutal with so many errors. How can it be that much night and day.

    I just hope he was texting someone to check him out on TV, only to have they turn on thr TV to see this. That would have been great irony.
