  • Providence Coach Ed Cooley Received Dumbest Technical Ever (Video)

    Providence Coach Ed Cooley Received Dumbest Technical Ever (Video)

    I wouldn’t go so far as to blame Providence’s upset loss to No. 11 Dayton on the officiating, but the referees certainly didn’t help the Friars’ cause when they called Providence coach Ed Cooley for a rather lame technical foul late in the second half. The technical foul in question came after Cooley slammed a chair against […]

  • Kevin Garnett Ejected For Spiking Basketball (Video)

    Kevin Garnett Ejected For Spiking Basketball (Video)

    Kevin Garnett has been ejected from numerous games over the course of his 20-year career in the NBA.  Most of those ejections were likely warranted, but the same can’t be said for his latest ejection, which came during last night’s 101-97 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Playing with one technical foul to his name already, […]

    Chris Paul Rips Female Ref After Clippers Loss to Cavs (Video)

    The Los Angeles Clippers had a horrendous night on Thursday, as they accumulated a total of five technical fouls during an uninspiring 105-94 loss to the red-hot Cavs in Cleveland.  One of those technical fouls  was on Chris Paul, and it was called by rookie referee Lauren Holtkamp, who is in her first year as an […]

    Bucks’ Larry Sanders Hands Out Thumbs-Up to the Officials (Video)

    The Milwaukee  Bucks are almost a lock to make this year’s NBA playoffs, as they currently sit in eighth place, eight games ahead of the ninth-place Toronto Raptors.  However, you have to believe that the Bucks would love to get as many wins as they can over the final month of the season so that […]

    Raptors’ Amir Johnson Gets Ejected, Throws Mouthpiece at the Ref (Video)

    Things have not been going well for the Toronto Raptors.  They are 4-18 to start the season, they are an abysmal 1-14 on the road , and they are currently in the midst of a five-game losing streak.  Sure, their expectations weren’t exactly sky-high heading into the season, but with the off-season acquisitions of Kyle Lowry and […]

    Kevin Durant Pushes Evan Turner, Argues With Kenny Rogers Look-A-Like (Video)

    It appears as though no one can stop Kevin Durant these days.  Not the Eastern Conference All-Stars.  Not the Philadelphia 76ers’ Evan Turner.  And certainly not that Kenny Rogers look-a-like that was seated courtside at the Wells Fargo Center during yesterday’s game between the Thunder and the 76ers. Durant would receive a technical foul as […]

  • Paul Pierce Gets A Technical Foul For Setting A Pick (Video)

    Paul Pierce Gets A Technical Foul For Setting A Pick (Video)

    Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics could have been a lot more interesting down the stretch had it not been for what may very well be the softest (and worst) call of the playoffs thus far. Everyone knows that the intensity of the games gets […]

    See How A Male Cheerleader Almost Cost Louisville The Game (Video)

    Some big shots and good defense down the stretch helped the Pittsburgh Panthers send yesterday’ Big East battle against Louisville into overtime.  An embarrassing gaffe by a male cheerleader of the Cardinals almost sent it into double-overtime. Trailing by three with less than ten seconds remaining on the clock in the first overtime, Pitt’s Brad […]

    Things Get Punchy Between No. 4 Pitt And No. 9 Villanova (Video)

    It was one of those elite performances that should at least get the Pittsburgh Panthers some consideration for top spot among voters, if it doesn’t end up putting them there when the latest NCAA men’s basketball rankings are released.  They did something that hadn’t been  accomplished in over four years, despite taking one on the […]

    Tommy Heinsohn On The New NBA: “It’s Stupid!” (Video)

    Many players, coaches, fans and other individuals involved in the NBA have already voiced their displeasure with the league’s new initiative to hand out more technical fouls for overt gestures.  You can add Celtics’ color commentator Tommy Heinsohn to that list. After Kevin Garnett was ejected from last night’s exhibition game against the New York […]
