Nazr Mohammed apologized after Friday’s game for his ejection during the second quarter of the Chicago Bulls’ 104-94 loss to the Miami Heat. Mohammed reacted to a technical foul by LeBron James by pushing the Heat forward, who fell to the ground. Mohammed received a Flagrant 2 foul for his actions and was ejected. He vented on Twitter and apologized for his behavior, which cost the Bulls some much-needed depth in the middle, forcing Joakim Noah to play 42 minutes. “Sorry for my overreaction & being ejected. I blacked out & just reacted after I was pushed down. I’m happy it only resulted w/ a push,” Mohammed wrote. Mohammed also wanted to make it clear that he recognizes his behavior was not exemplary. “For the kids who were watching… That not the way to react on the basketball court,” he wrote. Mohammed then capped it off with this tweet: Hopefully if I’m in the same situation again I will control my emotions but u never know what ur instincts will do. #SeeRed — Nazr Mohammed (@NazrMohammed) May 11, 2013 Mohammamed probably feels terribly about hurting his team in addition to setting a poor example. But like he said, when you’re in the middle of competition, sometimes it’s not so easy to control your emotions.
