Obvious anger issues. Renaldo Balkman, a former first round pick of the Knicks in 2006, was released by the team in 2012 and is now playing in the Philippine Basketball Association for the Petron Blaze Boosters. During a recent game against the Alaska Aces, with time winding down and the Boosters about to take a loss, Balkman became upset at what he perceived to be a missed call by the ref. This led to the former NBAer having an epic meltdown that started with Balkman shoving the officials and teammates, and culminated with him trying to choke out fellow Booster Arwind Santos. Either that or Balkman was administering some new fangled version of the Heimlich maneuvre, but I doubt it. If Balkman has any hopes of making a return to the NBA, he might want to keep this Latrell Sprewell moment off his resumé. Pretty sure this sort of behavior is frowned upon by NBA executives.
