The Raptors are 4-18, having another losing season, and there seems to be no bright light at the end of the tunnel. This losing atmosphere has to be weighing on the players mind or at least you hope it is when you see the following video of Amir Johnson absolutely losing his mind.  In the third quarter versus the Blazers, Johnson began to tangle with NBA ref David Jones for the ball off a JJ Hickson free throw. I mean he literally was trying to wrestle the ball away from the ref when things just got worse. Johnson kept tugging the ball from Jones, the two exchanged words, and next thing you know, Johnson is tossed. And if you think it ended there, you will be wrong. Amir was restrained by his teammates, and he tossed his mouth piece at Jones before exiting the arena. Needless to say, the NBA will have a hefty fine and/or suspension heading his way quite soon. Check it out. [follow]
