WATCH: Sixers fan caught sound asleep courtside vs. Heat originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
The fourth game of the Sixers' second-round series vs. the Heat started a bit later than it needed to, an 8 p.m. tipoff instead of something more reasonable like 7 p.m.
Why start so late on a Sunday? Who knows?
But apparently the late night was a bit too much for one Sixers fan sitting courtside Sunday night.
Late in the third quarter TNT's cameras captured a uniquely hilarious scene at the Wells Fargo Center, with a fan appearing to be completely asleep in the first row (!) of the seats along the baseline:

I don't even know how that's possible! The Wells Fargo Center was absolutely rocking on Sunday night. Sixers fans were screaming for Joel Embiid and-ones, James Harden stepbacks, and Tyrese Maxey triples like their lives depended on it.
And yet this man was still 100% done for. Honestly? Impressive. What a performance. That's dedication to your craft.
Of course, the internet seized on the moment and had some fun:
