In no other sport do fans sit as close to the action as they do in the NBA. This can make for some lighthearted moments, like when LeBron James steals popcorn from a fan, as well as some pretty awkward ones. Slot what happened to Kevin Durant in the latter category.
After scoring 26 points en route to helping the Golden State Warriors go up 2-0 on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, Durant was strolling back to the tunnel toward the locker room when a fan reached down and swiped the towel Durant had hanging around his neck. The look Durant gave the fan was one of the most terrifying death stares I think I’ve ever seen.
Of course, after being caught, the fan immediately returned the towel to Durant, then even extended his hand for a high five. But probably don’t invade a player’s personal space like that again, dude.
