It looks like they were ejected for recieving their 2nd technical foul. They had, well atleast Hill had gotten one with J. Jack earlier so he got his 2nd when he slapped Evans on the butt...... It didn't appear to be a good play slap it looked to be an I'm pissed slap. So I understand the double techs.

That was ridiculous , I wonder if the top tier stars are going to thrown out. I'll be okay with the new rule if it applies to all.

I hate how the refs were following them as they left the court, like they're some sort of hardasses. "Yeah, keep walking. Get off my court." They were leaving the court, LAUGHING about the whole thing. No need for the escort.

To be fair, Reggie Evans has a history of below-the-waist hand manuevers.

I thought Hill got his first when he looked at the ref at the start of that video and shouted out "bulls@#$""

I agree with other, both were having fun. Did they get caught up in the moment? Sure.

However, I agree there was no need to follow them off the court.

NBA refs just need to toughen up.

Enough with acting like a bunch of cupcakes. Let the players play and stop being offended when a player throws his hands up.

Laughable ejections aren't uncommon in Toronto

I believe the players need to toughen up.

Quit acting like a bunch of cupcakes. Just shut up and play. I tire of seeing players whining after every call.

If the refs were unbiased and called everything down the middle, players wouldn't whine nearly as much. When you see players like Lebron and Kobe whining and in turn getting tons of calls go their way, other players are going to follow suit.

I do agree that the whole Association needs to toughen up and play though.

Agree.

I can't think of any other sport in the world where such trivial things are punished. I watched a tiny portion of the Miami-OKC game and Lebron was backing down Durant. He turned for a jumpshot, thought he got fouled and yelled at the ref who then called the foul. It all happened very quickly and I'm not saying that Lebron's reaction affected the ref's call, but according to the new rules Lebron should've been T'd up. He wasn't.

Same rules for all please.

I agree with that premise, but is that what happened in this case?

I only saw the short clip, but that looked like two guys just having fun.

If that gets you an ejection, then KG should get a T every time he bats a *** down after the whistle.

Either way, just a funny clip. Still early to make any definitive conclusions about the refs of the players just yet

I agree with the bolded part. Seems the players had a better sense of humor than the officials.
