Video: Warriors’ Jordan Bell checks on fan who got hit hard by a kicked ball
It’s ironic that the priciest seats in live sports, while offering the best view of the action, also come with more risks. That was evident during the Golden State Warriors’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, where Jordan Bell starred in one moment as he checked on a fan who got hit hard by a kicked ball.
It wasn’t Bell who caused the leather to go flying straight to an unsuspecting woman’s head, but his teammate Alfonzo McKinnie.
The reaction of the crowd says it all. Never has a kicking violation elicited such a collective gasp so one can only imagine how shocking the situation was.

This is an awesome gesture from Bell, whose maturity was put into question recently and it even resulted in the Warriors penalizing him. Apparently, Bell charged hotel items to the team’s assistant coach in Mike Brown.
Bell played sparingly on the night, but he certainly made the most out of stint on the floor by showing how he cares for the fans.
The Warriors won the game against the Cavs, 120-114. It was a surprisingly close affair since the Cavs, sans All-Star power forward Kevin Love, have no business stealing a road win in Golden State. But a win is a win and the Warriors need every victory they can get as they hope to clinch home court throughout the entire West playoffs.
