It’s been a rough few weeks for NBA referees. You will recall, last week Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson randomly decided to throw his mouthpiece at an official during a game against the Portland Trail Blazers. He was subsequently suspended one game for being dumb.
On Saturday night, possibly innocently, Milwaukee Bucks center Joel Przybilla threw a basketball at a referee with less than two minutes remaining in Saturday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Check it out:
Przybilla was suspended for one game less than 24 hours later. Did he even mean to hit the referee? The NBA doesn't know or care, apparently.
