A common refrain among older NBA fans is that the league has gone soft since the 80’s. Not enough dirty play and swinging fists. It used to be that if you wanted to get ejected you had to go absolutely crazy. Now you can get ejected for laughing. And poor Larry Sanders was just trying to show his appreciation for the referee’s correct call and they go and eject him!
Which was too bad, because only 2 more points and he would’ve tied a career high. Oh well. I mean, it was the right call anyway, I don’t get why he was so riled up about it.
