Remember that study that came out that said handshakes and all other forms of physical contact between teammates actually helps your team's performance? Maybe they should start to cover physical contact between opponents instead, because if last night is any indication, giving your opponent some love is completely unacceptable.
Yup, that's Grant Hill and Reggie Evans getting ejected from an NBA preseason game for slapping each other's butt after a foul call. Evans tripped Hill pretty badly on the play, and he gave him a little tap on the backside as a way of apologizing for the hard foul. Hill tapped him back, and suddenly, they were thrown out. Clearly, the NBA is taking their crackdown on complaining after the whistle seriously.â†µ
The big question: does this mean Joey Crawford will fulfill his lifelong dream and eject a player before the game even starts? Because I have even money on that happening.â†µ
