David West picked up a technical foul while running to the stationary bike in the tunnel

This story just doesn’t check out.

David West was assessed a technical foul from the bench midway through the third quarter of Warriors vs. Spurs Game 4. The thing is, many people believed he was in the tunnel riding the bike when he was called for a tech.

West admitted he was on the bench, but got up and sprinted to the bike after a he didn’t agree with a foul call on the floor. He was called for a tech shortly after, which sent the Warriors bench into mass hysteria.

One fan near the court recorded Stephen Curry talking with official Tony Brothers, making the case that whatever Brother hears was said by a fan in the crowd.

We don’t know who said what. All we know is that this was a bizarre sequence for a professional basketball game.
