With aggressive fans stealing headbands, it's a good idea for NBA players to stay alert these days.
Dwight Howard made the mistake of letting his guard down as he entered the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee on Thursday.
As he walked past what he thought was a statue of the Bucks' mascot, Bango, the costumed character began violently shaking his head and moving around, startling the the 6-foot-11 center.
Howard proceeded to do a spin move away from Bango. He then flashed his signature smile and said, "Oooooooh, that was a good one."
