76ers Fan Can’t Distract Celtics in Game 3 Despite Strategic Use of Enormous Stomach (Video)

There are so many ways you can try and distract a basketball player at the free-throw line, but none were as "big" as what faced the Celtics on Wednesday night.

The C's hammered the 76ers in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series in Philadelphia, but one overzealous Philly fan should be applauded for his efforts to help the hometown team, even if an unforgettable sight is now burned in our minds.

One rather, um, hefty Sixers fan did his best to distract the C's when they went to charity stripe by quite simply lifting his shirt. Of course, hefty is an understatement when it comes to this fine citizen of Philadelphia. 

His efforts were for not, however, with the Celtics shooting 22-for-28 for the line on the way to a 107-91 win.

Check it out in the video below, which is safe for work — unless you're eating breakfast or lunch. But you've been warned.
