The NBA has become the ultimate in fan interaction, as the action is literally happening inches away from the luckiest and highest-paying fans. This usually leads to some very interesting incidents involving everyday people, not just the guys getting paid millions of dollars.
Whether it be guys hitting half-court shots, which is something that's been happening at an alarming rate recently, or just weird altercations or interactions with NBA players, it seems that nary a week goes by without another fan getting his rounds on the Internet.
The Internet has done wonders for fans, as things that usually wouldn't make SportsCenter for more than a few seconds get discussed to no end in the bloggeries around the world.
If you think that's a good or a bad thing is beside the point, it's just something that happens these days, something that I've got to be thankful for.
It's fun to see fans interact with players and get their 15 minutes of fame, and now that we can get a clip of any instance from a game at any time, those 15 minutes seem to come every hour on the hour.
