Butt Slaps Are Now Technical Fouls In The NBA (Video)
In an effort to reduce the theatrics that NBA players have become known for on the court, the league has instructed its referees to hand out more technical fouls this season for overt gestures. I guess they consider ass-slapping to fall under their definition of “overt gestures.”
During an exhibition game last night between the Toronto Raptors and the Phoenix Suns in Vancouver, British Columbia, Reggie Evans and Grant Hill exchanged a few pats on the rear end, which was enough for the officials to hand out technical fouls to both players. It was the second technical foul assessed to each player, resulting in their ejection.
Thankfully, it was only a preseason game, so rather than arguing with the officials, Hill and Evans shared a laugh with one another before heading to the showers together. We refuse to speculate as to whether any more ass-slaps were exchanges behind closed doors.
