While Lil Wayne was just an ordinary viewer, Dr Disrespect seemed to be extremely invested in the match. He was anxiously pacing up and down the sidelines as the match progressed. It is no secret that the Two-Time is a betting man and loves to play the odds. He might have certainly put some money on either team and was hoping for a massive return.

Dr Disrespect rushes to pick up a fallen Cam Johnson

During the 4th quarter of the game, Cameron Johnson dribbled the ball with hopes to score only to be pushed off. The Sun’s SF tumbled out of the court from the impact and lay on the floor for a couple of seconds. While most of the fans watched, Dr Disrespect went over to Cam and lent him a hand.

Being close to the sidelines, the popular streamer tried helping Cam up. However, to his disappointment, the stadium security stopped him from doing so. They pushed Dr Disrespect away from the Sun’s player, leaving gaming as well as basketball fans upset.

Doc had taken all the safety measures as he approached Cam. While he pulled down his face mask on a couple of occasions, he ensured he had it on while helping the fallen player. Regardless, the security thought it was a bad idea to allow someone from the audience to come in contact with a player, even if it was Dr Disrespect himself.
