Warriors’ JaVale McGee eats fan’s popcorn at Suns game

Apr 8, 2018, 7:51 PM

Popcorn is a good thing to have at a basketball game.

It is not good, however, if you shell out for a bucket of the stuff and somebody takes a bite without asking.

That isn’t so easy to manage or gripe about after the fact if the person who didn’t ask to eat your popcorn is a very large basketball player.

One fan at the Phoenix Suns’ hosting of Golden State on Sunday found himself in such a position when Warriors center JaVale McGee took an Alex Len shove out of bounds and decided to treat himself to a snack.

McGee walked right into the crowd and casually nabbed a piece of popcorn from the fan attempting to find his seat.

Said fan didn’t react much at all.

Either he was extremely terrified that the 7-foot-1 big man had just crossed him or he was totally fine with it — the latter would be a weird thing to imagine.

In fairness, it’s not worth the fan causing a kerfuffle with a person much bigger than him. Either way, McGee was already back on the playing court before the fan had time to digest what had happened.

McGee, meanwhile, had already digested a very delicious piece of popcorn.
