    Niang's technical

    What did Niang get the technical for? On TV, they talked about the refs being more vigilant this year regarding sportsmanship. Apparently, it was something Niang said (for which he had an apology reported in this morning's paper).

    So, what did he say? Who did he say it to? And what were the surrounding circumstances?

    It sure hurt us when he fouled out.

    If you watch after it, he tells one of the players on the bench that he said "F*** you" to the player that bumped him.

    Kind of ridiculous.

    Getting a technical for saying **** you is ridiculous?

    Yeah. Because I can promise you much worse things are said in the game.

    I believe he said it to the player.

    But if he said it to the ref, yeah, he deserved it.

    Re: Niang's technical

    The refs were looking at something on the replay TV after the call. Were they really checking what he said and who he said it to?

    Disagree 100% Niang deserved it if that's what he said.

    Well, I'm not sure what they were looking at. You couldn't see anything on TV, and if he did something physical, surely the cameras would've caught it, or at least one announcer would've seen it.

    I wonder how many T's I would receive on any given day? I'm pretty sure I fouled out before lunchtime today.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    I respect your opinion, but much worse things are said on the court.

    In fact, watch Tyrus McGee. Biggest trash talker on the team, and I promise he isn't saying: "Yo momma makes terrible cookies."

    It was the only time the phrase f*** you was heard by the refs. If Niang turns the ball over, for example, and responds by saying f***and gets t'd up, then I agree, ridiculous call. However, by directing a F*** you directly to another player of the opposite team, you're looking for some in game drama to start, and at that point a technical is well deserved.

    Tyrus is awesome.

    Wasn't it Elijah Johnson that flat out shoved Korie with two arms? With no foul call? BS.
