The Raptors are in the midst of a season for the ages, but for all the wrong reasons.  To say the team is struggling would be an understatement—the Raps have lost five in a row and 10 of their last 11 and have pretty well thrown in the towel on the 2012-13 season and it we’re only halfway through December.  Toronto lost to Portland 94-72 on Monday night in yet another putrid effort, but all anyone will be talking about in that game will be Raptors forward Amir Johnson’s bizarre ejection after a run-in with referee David Jones. As you saw in the video above, Johnson—for reasons known only to him—attempted to wrestle the ball away from Jones following a Trail Blazers free throw.  When he wouldn’t give up the ball the pair had words and Jones justifiably ejected Johnson.  This totally sent Johnson over the edge, and as teammates restrained him from going after the ref, he took out his mouthpiece and threw it at Jones’ back.  Apparently Amir has a pretty decent arm because his throw was on target, and he nailed the referee square in the back with his disgusting, saliva covered mouthpiece. Expect David Stern and the NBA to have a closer look at Amir Johnson’s wild antics, and to lighten his wallet considerably via a well deserved fine. [Deadspin]
