Before players could break a sweat in Monday night's matchup between the Washington Wizards and the Houston Rockets, the game had to be delayed 35 minutes because of a crooked rim.
According to the Rockets' Twitter account, Dwight Howard tried to fix the problem himself.
Unfortunately, the big man wasn't able to resolve the issue. As a result, a whole new basket and stanchion had to be brought out.
The length of the delay had some suggesting this might not have been a coincidence.
Conspiracy? You be the judge.
