Basketball games attract a global audience that includes folks of all genders and races. Apparently the game also attracts all species as well, something we saw on Wednesday night in the game between the Washington Wizards and San Antonio Spurs.

At one point in the game, a bird that had made its way through the rafters floated down to the court to check out the game. The bird wasn’t harmed and the action wasn’t disrupted, but our flying friend managed to capture the attention of fans in attendance, as well as CSN cameras.

bird not larry

Washington was involved in a game that saw a rain delay earlier this year, which means that this appearance by a bird proves that the Wizard just aren’t lucky when it comes to outside forces messing with their basketball game.

We think we know who might have ben responsible for this though.
