John Wall Ejected for Bumping Into and Swearing at an Official (Video)
John Wall is almost certainly frustrated this year. His team is a bleak 1-5, and it’s looking unlikely that he’ll ever turn the corner into superstardom the way Kyrie Irving did a year or two back.
And while that may explain WHY he did what he did last night, it’s hardly an excuse.
The Wizards PG picked up a second tech with just 33 seconds left in their losing cause, resulting in his getting booted from the game for a fairly innocuous looking bump on a ref.
Take a look:
John Wall was ejected tonight for THIS!?

It doesn’t look like much, but depending on what he said, this could have just been the straw that broke the camel’s back last night.
The ref spelled it out simply enough:
“For inappropriate language and using vulgarity towards a game official. He already received his first technical foul. After granting the team a timeout, I felt there was contact and he bumped me. I wasn’t certain of his intent. I told him to watch himself. He looked over his shoulder and used vulgarity and inappropriate language and was ejected on his second technical foul.”
