Not sure what it is about the Toronto Raptors, but when players go there, they go there to die. Nothing good comes out of that place. They really need to move that squad back to the USA. Check out this weird ejection of power forward Amir Johnson last night. The Raptors were taking on the Portland Trail Blazers and J.J. Hickson was on the free throw line. After his first free throw Amir Johnson decided to wrestle the ball away from the referee David Jones after he already had it in his hands. Crazy right??? Not as crazy as throwing your mouth piece at him before you walk off the court. Must be something in the water down there in Toronto. Check out the video of the ejection below.
This is what Johnson had to say after the game.
SI “I think it was just real childish,” Johnson said. “It was something
that didn’t need to happen. I lost my cool. I apologize on that part.
I’ve never been kicked out of a game before or been teed up like that.”
Well, sadly for you David Stern isn't very childish with his fines, expect a Big Boy fine for Mr. Johnson.
