If you are lucky enough to sit front row at an NBA game, you probably need to be a little more attentive than if you are located in the nose-bleed seats.

Spurs fan Bob Kolarik learned that lesson the hard way Sunday at the Spurs-Lakers game.

A hard-charging Ron Artest and a just-returned-from-the-concessions Kolarik met head-on in the front row during Sunday’s Lakers-Spurs game. The result: Kolarik received a coffee facial and Artest’s shorts smelled more latte than Laker.

Hey, at least the fan didn’t throw his beverage at Artest. We all remember how that went last time.
