The New Orleans Pelicans’ Josh Hart did something every gamer has done at some point: he destroyed his keyboard in a Hulk-like rage.
If you have every played video games seriously then you know exactly what Josh Hart of the New Orleans Pelicans was going through when he eviscerated his keyboard in an expletive-laden rage.
Hart was part of a “Call of Duty” tournament that featured NBA players against NFL players in the popular online game.
Hart is a longtime gamer and loves to talk trash about his gaming prowess on Twitter, so it is obvious that he takes it seriously, maybe a little too seriously.
After getting capped at close range, Hart lost it, stomping the life out of his helpless keyboard before sending it across the room. Warning, this video contains language that is not family friendly. You’ve been warned.
Look, we’ve all been there, so I can’t be too harsh on Hart. Sometimes nothing feels better than taking out your frustrations on an inanimate object, even if it ultimately hurts no one but you and your wallet.
Players around the league have been entertaining fans by gaming on sites like Twitch and these types of tournaments are likely to get even more popular if the NBA decides to cancel the season.
Hart is one of the most popular New Orleans Pelicans’ players online and loves to talk trash to fans on social media.
We think of professional athletes as these cool characters who don’t get flustered even in pressure-filled situations, so it is nice to know they can be hotheaded fools just like the rest of us when it comes to losing at video games.
The funniest part of the video is listening to Hart’s peers laughing at him in the background as he lays waste to his keyboard.
The New Orleans Pelicans hope Hart brings this fire to the court when the season finally returns.
