ESPN Cameraman Hit By Two Basketballs During Rick Carlisle Interview (VIDEO)

By Dave Kelsey, Awful Announcing

Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle was being interviewed by ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters last Friday night during the Mavs-Thunder game, when some players began throwing basketballs at the ESPN cameraman.

As you can see, Coach Carlisle looks very concerned, asking the poor cameraman if he was 'ok' after being hit the first time. After the second time he gets hit, Coach explains to us that "this guy got hit in the head that time.”

With the way the Dallas Mavericks season has been going so far this year, Carlisle is probably pretty lucky that he wasn't the intended target of those basketballs.
