    "Yeah, gimme that!" was the foul language that got him T'd? Are we going to start calling technicals on players shouting "woo hoo!" next?

    Spot on with Kane though
    S.T.F.U.? Wow, what a brilliant analysis. How about responding to what I actually posted? From your response, I assume that you think Ejim SHOULD be be getting T's and riding the bench instead of being on the court helping the team?

    This is funny because it's like you don't realize the T contributed as one of the four fouls.

You cannot argue that it didn't hurt our chances of winning.
    He still played for 35 minutes.

    T's count toward personal foul limits.

    Re: Ejim's T's Hurting Us

    His T today didn't cause him to sit out. He stayed in the game.

    What hurt us was our crap FTs & no production from our shooters.

    Re: Ejim's T's Hurting Us

    Certainly some karma after the technical, He airballed his next one from the same exact spot. Love you Mel and you have earned the right to puff your chest, but probably best to just shut up and play. No matter what the national media thinks, we see how your play talks and that's more than enough for this fan.

    Re: Ejim's T's Hurting Us

    The T going up to the refs was dumb and he hurt the team. Tonight...that was a bs call. Get ready to see 5-10 Ts every single game if that's a T.

    Re: Ejim's T's Hurting Us

    Great competitor. No question.

    There's simple steps/points made that could be instilled to avoid things like getting T'd up, from a coaching perspective:

    1. Score the bucket.
    2. Get back and play D, without a word.

    Done.

    Apparently it's OK to get T'd up, play D for a series, and then stare down the opposing crowd like that looks cool when your team has looked like crap all game.

    Oh, and...
    3. BLOCK OUT.

    Are you really saying that Ejim needs to block out better, he is probably the only one on the team that does a good job of this consistently.

    I blame Canada. It's impossible to overcome the rough yet futile upbringing that happens up there.

    You are clueless if you don't think every player does at least that if not significantly worse things. The amount of people who don't understand that is amazing.

    The T was weak and anyone who says otherwise is trolling or doesn't understand basketball at all.

    From a coaching perspective, get glasses.

    Tonight's was just a screw job by the refs. How was be supposed to know he'd get in trouble for something that literally happens every game?
