For some reason, NBA fans are getting in the act and getting their share of attention for all the wrong reasons. The recent days have seen some throwing popcorn or throwing bottles. At the Capital One Arena, one fan just reportedly attempting to make a jump at the basket that was close to Dwight Howard.

As can be seen in the video, security personnel were able to tackle him in time. While the intent seems to be childish, there was no telling what else could have happened. He ended up getting cuffed and taken out of the arena for his foolish intent. It would, later on, be reported that Monumental Sports & Entertainment banned the fan aside from the charges he will face with the D.C. police department.

It is the latest incident where fans have been getting involved for odd reasons. Some fans gave their take on the incident, some calling it silly. Others took it up a notch, questioning the level of security at the Capitol One Arena.

With the latest incident, it will be interesting what other mischief fans will be up to. From that popcorn throwing incident on Russell Westbrook to the bottle-throwing case involving Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA may need to remind all venues to tighten security on unpredictable fans.

The last thing the NBA wants to see are players getting hurt or experiencing something untoward. Even other arenas who have yet to deal with such fans, expect the security measures to be heightened with fans now back in the stands.

The Wizards vs. Sixers matchup is heating up, even more reason for arena security personnel to be on their feet. It is the second incident that has happened in the series and the NBA does not want to see another one happening soon.
