Emeka Okafor saves fan falling from stands

New, comments

Probably the most heads-up off the court play you'll see all season.

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Amin already mentioned this in today's links post, but this is just too crazy to leave there. D.C. Sports Bog got some video last night of a fan who was reaching juuuuuuuuust a bit too far over the railing to get high-fives and nearly falls before getting an assist from Emeka Okafor.


The nutty thing is that his save was a lot like his save was a lot like his play on the court: It was a move that relied mostly on his height and wasn't all that flashy, but it was a heads-up play and it got the job done. It got us wondering how other Wizards would be able to help people in dire situations.

Jan Vesely: Perfect for extended mouth-to-mouth CPR.

John Wall: If you ever get trapped in a well and you need someone to run into town to let people know, he's your guy.

Bradley Beal: Can't think of anything specific he could help with, but he seems like a nice guy to have around to tell you that everything is going to be OK. We all need those kinds of people in emergencies.

Jordan Crawford: There's no one I'd rather have around if there's a steez shortage.

Martell Webster: He's great for a lot of things, just make sure you let him know how time he has to work with first.

Randy Wittman: Nobody is dying of emphysema under his watch.
