Messing around at your buddy’s house with a laser pointer is all fun and games. Yet when you attend an NBA game, it’s probably best left at home.
Last night during the Rockets game vs the Utah Jazz, James Harden headed to the line to shoot free throws. In between shots, a little red dot appeared on All Star shooting guard’s face, causing him to pretend to throw the basketball at the fan.

Harden would have had to rocket the ball up several rows to hit him, as the upper level fan was caught during the stoppage.

The fan has subsequently been banned from every NBA arena for one year.
Apparently it’ll take more than a laser pointer to beat Houston. Rockets take down the Jazz, 93-91.
