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

Apr 19, 2012, 5:28 PM EST

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.
