Ok, maybe I’m just jumping to conclusions. I mean, it is the preseason. Just as the players and teams are ironing out the kinks, the referees may be doing the same. But it’s just so hard for my mind not to refer back to the NBA’s new technical foul policy when I see Grant Hill and Reggie Evans get thrown out of a game for patting each other on the butt.
If this is any indication of what we’re going to see the regular season, the coaches may need to suit up because all the players will be hanging out in the locker room.
