Indiana Pacers forward Paul George might want to think twice about kicking the ball on the court again after he was ejected for hitting a fan in the face Saturday night.
Here’s a shot of George kicking the ball into the face of an unlucky fan during the game against the Chicago Bulls.

Clearly, George didn’t kick the ball hard or even appear to be all that upset about anything that transpired on the court. He even apologized to the poor fan afterward.
Instead, it certainly looks like he was doing what so many others do all the time when they kick the ball off the base of the hoop. Unfortunately for him, his kick veered off course and went into the face of the fan.
The refs didn’t see any wiggle room for interpretation here and immediately ejected George for his action.
