Lady Standing Courtside Gets Knees Taken Out By Clippers G Mo Williams (Video)

Talk about taking the whole “Clippers” name a step too far, am I right? With the Los Angeles Clippers down by two to the the Dallas Mavericks with five seconds remaining during Wednesday’s night tilt between the teams, an extremely important inbounds play was in the offing when Clippers guard Mo Williams, in an attempt to make a play on the ball, went barreling into the row of fans seated immediately courtside. Unfortunately one young woman, who was standing as the play developed, was dropped like a bag of dirt after Williams inadvertently took out her knees and she went crashing to the ground. Thankfully, the young lady appeared to be fine and a good time was had by one and all.

But let this video be a lesson to anyone lucky enough to land those coveted courtside seats: like it or not, you can become an unwitting part of the action in a split second, just like what happened to Larry David when he accidentally tripped Shaquille O’Neal in that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which, while not real, causes me to reflect at how it’s surprising a situation like that has never occurred at an NBA game.
